Mine has the 9mm viola pegs. These would be my choice.
I have made several “Baroque Style” guitars and always used full size 4/4 violin pegs.
I think the size looks just about right.
Someone on a well known action site sells rosewood violin pegs which are cheap, look and “sound” (yes I think it does make a difference) great!
Why not give them a try.
Chuck, take a look at pegheds.net and see if you like the 'Period' style pegs type 945C.
