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!

* Brazilian Pernambuco is an expensive wood due to its rarity as well as the extended drying time required. It only grows in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil and can only be harvested from trees that are 50-100 years old. Due to its high density, it works very well as a violin bow or as a fittings set.
I bought three of them and tried them all , They were all good , But for my violin , the Ebony was the best for sound and clarity ! The Boxwood was the loudest , I made my choice by listening to my fiddle after recording with each tail piece , The rosewood was good close to the Ebony !
I absolutely love it. I had all the fine tuners taken off, and the pegs replaced with the planetary gear pegs. What a difference in the quality of the sound.
I think the harp tailpiece made a pretty good difference in the sound of my Legend violin. However I was pretty ****** that you did not send the tail gut with it.
This tailpiece gave my violin a new life. The sound is powefull and bright, the resonances and overtones are incredible. I read good and bad reviews on internet, looks like it is not for all violins but, I think every violinist should try this tailpiece.
This tailpiece, along with the separately sold Titanium Tail Gut really opened up the sound for my violin. I can go into higher positions without that muted sound. The dynamic contrasts I can get now are amazing@
