I was looking at my bass, today, and I noticed something strange. The tuning pegs are starting to come out of the headstock:



It's a cheap bass, so these things are bound to happen... Anybody have a way to fix it? I'm assuming it's not that complicated, but I don't want to try and fix it when I have no clue what I'm doing.

I'd play it safe and take it into a shop with this one.

What kind of bass is it? It may be worth it to just upgrade.

tl;dr How does one safely remove the smell of a corpse from a banjo?


Would you run down past the fence?

Tell us, is the black box lying?

It's not hard to tighten them back.

Thought it was something like that, but I like to be sure about things. Thank you.

Tighten them up. If they wiggle after that, look towards replacement.

Replacing tuning pegs is not that hard--if you check the FAQ, Delirium has the instructions (I believe).

I could be wrong*, but it just looks like the ferrules. With that arrangement, you need to make sure they're in tight (maybe a spot of glue would help) because they bear some of the tension on the post.


*it has happened....lol
