    Looks like a lot more threads on the newer white button version.

    Those threads don't have to be tapped in the wood, do they? From what I recall, you drill a hole of the proper size and then the tuner does the tapping as you screw it into the wood.

    I believe you are right according to these installation instructions

    Noticed that the nickel PegHed tuners have screws to adjust the tension unlike the traditional one. I like both but still, the traditional one look better.

    I’ve never actually used the Gotohs before, but I have PegHeds on my Fluke, my Firefly and my Konter Ukes and absolutely love them. I do like the look of the new style of PegHeds. I just might have to get a set of those...

    nickel look much better than black imo (unless on a violin). wonder what the actual weight is (other than 1.5oz heavier than the black) and how it compares to gotohs. the statement "These pegs are ideally suited for Tenor and Baritone Ukuleles and for Banjos." makes me think they are on the heavy side

    Another thing I don't like about the PH is pulling and pushing to adjust the turning tension. I'm always afraid I'll pull or push too hard. I have a set I haven't installed, yet, and I'm not sure I want to. I also have Gotoh and Ratio available.

    I think if you try them you may like them. I never had an issue with the Pegheds

    It is a gentle pull. Just gently pull the knob to get it looser or gently push in if it's too loose. I recommend having the PegHed tuners stay firm. Just enough so the tuners could hold the strings without backlash.
