This tailpiece design allows for a slightly longer string length, meant to enhance resonation and sound production in your violin! The improvement may be slight, but for a fine violinist, that can go a long way. Dense woods are often ideal for areas that are constantly in use (but do not produce as much sound). Keep in mind that the density is not the only thing to factor in, as the quality and make will be the biggest factor.
This tailpiece is available in a regular and a lightweight option. The lightweight option us hollowed out in the core to reduce weight and stress on the strings, which will allow for a more open and full projection and tone!

I hear a slight difference...harp tailpiece a bit more resonant sound on some of the notes you played. Really, I need to play the violin myself to hear better...I have a Padauk harp tailpiece on my Maggini violin and a few other violins...to me definitely improved the sound. Quality bridge setup and good strings also very important. Curious to try the Olive wood harp tailpiece I saw on Amazon...and the Rosewood piece you sell...Will you carry the Padauk harptailpiece anymore? Thanks
