The end button holds the tail gut and tailpiece firmly in place.
The end button is found at the end or bottom of the violin body and can be made from almost any type of wood, (or also more recently in Titanium). The tail gut of the modern violin attaches at the end of the tailpiece and loops around the end button so it has a secure anchor point to hold the tailpiece in place.
This beautiful end button is made from Boxwood, and can be purchased to match the other fittings on your violin, (or mix and match to your individual taste).
End Button (instructions didn’t indicate which end)
My experience was “peachy”; though I was secretly hoping your shipping team would inadvertently package up that $15K Italian fiddle by mistake. Never fear, I’m an honest customer: I’d have returned the violin (within a few years). ♬

I received the button quickly in the mail.. Works perfectly. My experience with the fiddler shop has been wonderful.
