Hi all, It's been a long time since I frequent this board. Recently, I acquired a small 3/4 or a large 1/2 violins, which needs new strings. I put 1/2 strings on (as it was sold as 1/2), but the pegs would not stay tight. So, I used compound to add some friction, but it did not help. Then I tried 1/2 - 3/4 violin string (Evah Pirazzi) on one peg, which stayed tight. The problem is that I prefer Vision, which only goes by 1/2 or 3/4, and they don't seem to have in between sizes. In this case, if I use 3/4 strings, will they be too large? I have problems putting a 4/4 strings on a small 4/4 violin--The pegs simply would not stay tight when I tried to tune the violin. Many thanks in advance.
