The strings are easier fed from the back/bottom of the tailpiece. Please see instructional video:
Highest quality Indian woods. We had these made at a 108mm length (shorter than the average tailpiece) in order to give maximum string length, thus increasing your sound quality. They are also lighter than other tailpieces with built in fine tuners. Less weight equals less interuptions in the transfer of vibrations. We have compared these Tailpieces to the Pusch tailpieces ($50+). The wood qualities are comparable, but the hardware on the Pusch tailpiece is heavier.
Features 4x Fine tuners
Available in Ebony, Boxwood, and Rosewood
Boxwood weight: 17gr (Pusch Tailpiece: 22gr)
Ebony weight: 20gr (Pusch Tailpiece: 29gr)
This tailpiece is recommended for steel core strings, and here's why;
The fine tuners on these tailpieces don't have a lot of room in the fine tuning area, meaning that the levers don't move as much. They are smaller levers. Synthetic core strings stretch a whole lot more than steel core strings, so you will not get as much use out of the fine tuners with synthetic core strings installed. They will work, but not as they are supposed to. This is why we recommend Steel core strings for this tailpiece. They don't stretch nearly as much and the fine tuners have a much bigger effect on them.
