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!

Wood density list average (Grams per Cubic Centimeter)
Boxwood 0.91

Available woods

* 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.

Harp tailpiece with Wittner "Piccolo" fine tuners

I have two violins with these "harp" tailpieces, and have added (4) Wittner "Piccolo" fine tuners to maintain the intended string after length, and I am very, very pleased with the resulting improvement in sustain, overtones, and resonance over the standard tailpiece. I have read reviews and concerns about these harp-style tailpieces changing the "standard" after length tuning, but have discovered that with the tailgut length I have, the after length on the G string is accidentally, or fortuitously, tuned to a high B, and the D string after length is tuned to a high G (two octaves up). Perhaps there is a sweet after length tuning, or tailgut length that is the sweet spot for these tailpieces, and might be why they work extremely well on some violins and not others? Both of these violins have a string stop length of 330 mm. Well worth the price and some experimentation. Thanks, Fiddlerman.

Professional High-grade Acoustical "Harp" Violin Tailpiece

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 !

Harp style violin tailpiece

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.


The acoustical ���harp��

The acoustical ���harp�� violin tailpiece really opened up the sound of my violin. My violin became noticeably resonant. I certainly am enjoying it. I do not have any regret spending my money on this product.I am from the Caribbean so it took about 5 weeks to reach my address probably due to the type of shipping selected). However, it was properly packaged and I do appreciate that. Thanks fiddlershop!!!
