Excellent tool (too big though)

Carnivore, 29.11.2017
Brilliant idea and a real time and pain saver! I believe that I will be happy with this purchase for many years to come, since it eases up a task that is very time consuming and cumbersome otherwise.

I was unimpressed (yet not surprised) with the chinese quality of this tool. but the price is right and will do the trick anyway. So no complaints in that department I guess.

The tool sports ample power for its task, and batteries seem to last long (already used it on several restringing duties and I can only guess).

Another con (admittedly subjective and not vital to ditch purchasing this fantastic idea) is the size. This "drill" is vastly larger than I expected (say 70% the size of a household usual drill). So size is less than ideal to consider this winder comfortable to keep with you at all times in the case. Then again, this will usually find its place at home so it migth not be a factor for you.

In short: is a fantastic idea that renders a painful job into something fast and easy, looks and feels like plastic, is tolerably fancy looking, is large and eats power within reason. A clever purchase!

Why didn?t I get one of these sooner?!

Andrew4413, 02.05.2016
I have been really pleased with the Ernie Ball Power Peg 4118 and can?t understand why I didn?t buy one sooner. When I ordered it I was concerned that this battery powered string winder might be a bit on the large size but that turned out not to be the case. It is reasonably substantial but no more than it needs to be making it both comfortable to hold but not unwieldy.

The universal winder head has fitted all my guitars including a Gibson Les Paul, several Ibanez guitars (6, 7 and 8 strings), a vintage Kramer and an LTD 7-string baritone. With some of my acoustic guitars the heads of tuning pegs are quite large but the winder head still manages to get enough purchase to be effective.

You activate the winder using a 2-way trigger. It?s easy to use and I haven?t had a problem using it at all, even with my sausage fingers.

Battery life has been great. I?ve wound a bunch of guitars and it?s still on its first set of batteries. The winder includes a latch to lock the trigger so when you throw it in your gig bag or whatever it doesn?t accidentally start winding and use up battery life.

Overall I?m very pleased with the Ernie Ball Power Peg and no longer dread the chore of restringing my instruments.
