I am not that good at tuning very precisely with normal pegs so should I get perfection pegs or fine tuners. Can I have your advice please.

Using a Wittner tails piece with built in fine tuners might just do the trick for you. As it would leave full after lenght and easy tuning.

As for Prefection tuners, I love then. As a aging violinist it gets hard with time to turn those small screws.

Buy with the wittner tail piece costing about 1/3 the price of the perfection tuners. I think the wittner is a better choice.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

I would also add, if your violin is not new-ish, the peg holes might be reamed out a bit. The perfection pegs might not fit properly unless the peg holes are "resurfaced". Not all peg holes will have worn the same, so its possible you might have to mix/match the 2 sizes they come in.

I can see a need for them with some arthritis or weaker hands. At this point in my life, I'll stick to just using friction. I only have 1 fine tuner on all my instruments, except the electric. It might be a skill set lost sometime not to far into the future.

My violin is sort of new - 3 years old. I have decided to get the fine tuners. Thanks for  the advice everyone.
