Q: What is the difference between bronze and wooden erhu tuning pegs? Does it affect the sound produced, or merely the precision of tuning?
A: It is much easier to tune with bronze tuning pegs than wooden tuning pegs, and they make an erhu stay in tune for a longer period of time.
Erhu tuning pegs work just like guitar tuning pegs - though some say that bronze tuning pegs give an erhu metallic overtones.
It is ultimately a matter of personal preference. That being said, the most expensive and good erhus come with wooden tuning pegs, so it would be wise for a beginner to get acquainted with them.
