Good value, but a little issue
A good value, plastic doesn't affect sound negatively. But the two sides fine tunes, the G side and the E side, because the holder below the fine tuner screw is plastic, the fine tuner screw could easily slip outside the holder below, making the fine tuner not functioning...1st class service from the shop though, we were sent a replacement for free as part of the warranty. Thanks.
I have slowly been making adjustments to both of the violins my son and I inherited from my 97-year-old father. The half-size violin has proved particularly challenging to keep in tune. It is a light-weight instrument, so this tailpiece with built-in tuners seemed like the perfect solution. Between this new tailpiece and his new bow, my son is finally coaxing better tone out of this instrument, which is building his confidence. Very pleased and so is our teacher.
I purchased this tailpiece for my daughters 1/2 size violin. Upon comparison this tailpiece’s quality visually was superior. One installed my daughter noticed not only her violin was lighter but the sound quality improved. The main takeaway is the ease of the fine tuners! They are very responsive to fine adjustments and made tuning a breeze.
great people to work with
These tailpieces work great, are light weight, and function well. I've installed several of these and they are consistently good.
