Professional High-grade Acoustical "Harp" Violin Tailpiece
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.
We compared this tailpiece against the ZMT tailpiece and found that there was barely a difference, maybe due to the fact that you had to buy an extended G-string in order to use it... With this tailpiece you can use your current violin string set!

* Pernambuco is an expensive wood due to the rarity of it. It only grows in the state of Pernambuco in Brazil and can only be harvested from trees that are 50-100 years aged. It takes time to dry and it's been used for violin bows and fittings for a while.
