An instrument case essential.....
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Compact, well designed "lip-stick" style tube with loose fitting cover/cap.

Cons: Perhaps a little too dry in consistency - a better fitting cap may help. This type of product is always going to be a bit fiddly to apply AND get the amount to be used spot-on the first time too – but the quality of this compound is there overall and IT WORKS!

Other: Something “Made in England” which is always nice to buy/use/support!

Hills paste cures creaking pegs
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Seems to work. Immediate dramatic improvement.

Cons: Not an instant total cure for all ills - learning how much paste to apply to a peg requires time and experience.

Does what it says on the label
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: It does exactly what I'd been told it would do - makes pegs (lute, in my case) turn smoothly, stops them either sticking or sliding. Until I tried it I thought some of the claims I'd seen made for Hills peg paste were too good to be true, but it turned out they were absolutely right. Very glad I ordered it,

Cons: No cons

Works very well. Better than my DIY formula

Pros: It really works very well. The pegs turn smooth and stay put. Maybe a little bit slippery after the first application the first day, but they get settled well from that day on. I had been using the know soap+chalk formulation but I think that the Hill Peg Paste gives more control.

Cons: I think instructions or suggestions of use, would be a cheap improvement. I have colleagues who use it and I see the way different people apply to the pegs and the pegholes but I am thinking about students and people without experience.

Hill's Paste keeps the pegs turning!

Pros: Conveniet to use and easy to keep neat and tidy in a case. Works extremely well on the pegs of my theorbo.

Cons: I think it is quite expensive and the quantity is relatively small. There are alternatives which offer far more paste for half the price in a tin. You are really paying for the convenience of having it in stick-form. At least there's a choice.

Useful - when you know how to apply it.

Pros: The lip-stick type dispenser is a good idea. The paste does seem to work; it freed my sticking pegs quite a lot. However...

Cons: The instructions: 'To be used sparingly' leave a little to be desired. I used it sparingly but, although the pegs are easier to turn, I certainly need to do it all again. Obviously, I used it too sparingly. Better instructions would be useful on the SZ website.

Other: Arrived quickly - as usual.
