Scroll and Pegs

At the top of the instrument is the scroll.

Beneath the scroll, are the tuning pegs.

The pegs are fitted into the Peg box. Violins, violas, and cellos are built with tension pegs, which means the pegs are held in place by friction caused by the snug fit between the pegs and the peg holes. Double Basses use machine pegs. The pegbox and scroll are usually made from maple, and the pegs are made usually made from ebony.

Small holes are drilled in the pegs where the ends of the strings are inserted before being wrapped around the pegs.
