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 rosewood, and can be purchased to match the other fittings on your violin, (or mix and match to your individual taste).
End Button Review
Awesome! Once USPS finally got the order here. Stuff happens! Self install, using homemade shaper, took my time and was very careful. Looks great and compliments the tail piece, chin rest and Planetary geared pegs all in Rosewood. Very pleased with the quality and appearance!. Thanks Fiddlershop!
great people to work with
I've purchased several items from Filddlershop. The rosewood pegs, tailpiece, and end button were my latest, and worked very well. I have to say, my favorite thing I've gotten from you all, is the soundpost setter, saves many hours of chasing a sound post around in a fiddle!
