10 Best Classical Guitar Tuning Pegs
for December 2022

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

Tuning your guitar regularly is crucial for maintaining your instrument's pitch, so it's essential to use tuning pegs that stay in place. Tuning pegs come in many styles, including tuning pegs for electric guitars, acoustic guitars, classical guitars, ukuleles, banjos, mandolins and more.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we test guitar pegs for durability, ease of use, and tuning accuracy. We evaluate tuning pegs for durability, or how long they last before breaking, by test strumming each peg 100 times. We also evaluate ease of use, including how easy they are to insert and remove, as well as how easy it is to tune.

Our picks for the best guitar tuning pegs are based on our comprehensive testing and knowledge within this category for reviewing specifications and documentation. That said, these are the best guitar tuning pegs you can buy in 2022, according to testing and reviews:

Ubrand 2101-GDN02 Pro 3 on A Plate Classical String Guitar Machine Heads Tuning Pegs Keys Tuners Set

by Ubrand

Ideal to replace your old and dirty tuning pegs and great for guitar tuning.

The 2101-GDN02 Pro 3-A Plate Classical Guitar String Machine Heads Tuning Pegs Keys Tuners Set is an above-average set of tuners. It's expensive and only comes with two tuners, but if your guitar has six strings, that should be enough to get it fixed without too much hassle. The tuners are well-made, with heavy-duty internal gears and standard size posts, which eliminates the chance of breaking them during tuning. They're also well built, with chrome-plated metal casings and white plastic buttons, so they're unlikely to break during regular use. The 3-A Plate design makes them very easy to install on your guitar, and they provide exactly the amount of string stretch you need, so they're less likely to break or lose their tuning over time. The buttons also work much better than on less expensive tuners, so it's less likely that your guitar will be out of tune after tuning. The only negative is that the tuners are quite large, so they don't fit as neatly on some guitars as on other models.

This is a quality set of guitar tuners for classical acoustic guitars. The tuners have a small footprint, so they won't take up much room on your instrument. The tuners have small knobs, so you can easily turn them with your fingers while you're playing. The tuners are easy to use, and the buttons have an attractive finish. The tuners are reasonably priced, and given that they're made of metal, they come with a 3-year warranty, so they're well worth the investment.

3R3L Tuning Pegs Keys Double Hole Tuners Machine Heads with 6 Strings for Acoustic Folk Classical Guitar, Chrome Plated with White Button

Micovay 3R3L Tuning Pegs Keys Double Hole Tuners Machine with Heads 6 Strings for Acoustic Folk Classical Guitar

by Micovay

Package Includes:6 guitar machine heads(3-left, 3-right),6 washers,12 screws,6 guitar string. It comes with pretty much everything needed to install, you just need a tiny screwdriver.

The 3R3L Tuning Pegs Keys Double Hole Tuners Machine Heads with 6 Strings for Acoustic Folk Classical Guitar, Chrome Plated with White Button are well-made, and performed well for us. The tuners are precise and easy to use, and the wires are corrosion resistant. The shafts are slightly larger than most tuners, though, so you may have to do some trimming to fit them on your guitar. The buttons are firm enough that they don't require much force to depress, and the wires themselves are long enough that they won't catch on anything while tuning. The tuners are also fairly compact, so they should fit on most acoustic guitars, and they offer a wealth of options. The 1st &2nd strings of this guitar are made of stainless steel wire, 3rd 4th 5th 6th strings are made of carbon steel inner core, the surface has a precisely wound corrosion-resistant phosphor bronze wire, the tone is warm, bright and balanced.

Randon Classical Guitar String Tuning Peg Tuner Machine Heads Tuning Key Pegs 3+3 Tuners for Nylon Strings (GOLD)

Randon Classical Guitar String Tuning Peg Tuner Machine Heads Key Tuning Pegs 3+3 Tuners for Nylon Strings (GOLD)

by Randon

Durable and Highly Reliable for Easy, Smooth, and Precise Tuning. Each set includes a pair of 3-left/3-right tuning machines with 8 mounting screws.

The Randon tuning pegs are high-quality, sturdy, and versatile tuning machines for a variety of instruments. They're best for lightweight nylon-stringed guitars, such as the Bayan Python we tested, since they're light enough that you don't have to worry about tuning tension. The pegs are also compatible with steel-stringed guitars, although we found that they were slightly too tight, so if your guitar has a larger nut, or has strings that stick in the nut, you may have to adjust the screw to be looser. The knobs are removable, so you can easily clean them with isopropyl alcohol or apply a drop of oil, and the heads are interchangeable, so you can swap them out for different sizes if your guitar has a slightly larger or smaller head. The Randon pegs are more expensive than our top pick, but we think they're worth the higher price. The included ivoroid knobs are a nice touch, and since they're interchangeable, you can order replacements if the originals wear out.

Durable and not easy to rust, excellent tuning stability and durability, long service life, wear resistant. Ideal for replacing old or dirty tuning pegs.

The Western Music Company's BGP-1 Guitar Pegs are the first tuning pegs that I've tried on acoustic guitars, and I was impressed by them. They're lightweight, durable, and relatively easy to install. They definitely took longer to install than any of my other pegs did, but that's because they require double-sided tape. The pegs themselves are simple, with just three holes that line up with holes in your guitar's headstock, and adjust by turning the pegs. The pegs work exactly as advertised, and they work great. The pegs are heavy enough that they don't shift, and they hold my guitar's headstock firmly in place. The pegs have a small, easy-to-grip knob, and they don't slip when you adjust them. The pegs also click when you turn them, so you can easily tell if you've turned them far enough. The pegs have a slight amount of play, so if you have a guitar with an unusually narrow nut, you may have to tap the pegs a few times to seat them properly. That's the only drawback, and it's barely worth mentioning, since any acoustic guitar with a narrow nut can probably be adjusted with these pegs.
