I installed the titanium tail guts on a violin and viola based on the reviews that said it improved the sound of your instrument. I also liked the fact that they are stronger than nylon and don’t stretch. It’s hard for me to judge the sound since I also changed strings when I put the tail guts on but I sense a bit more resonance in both the violin and viola. While doing the installs I realized that the viola titanium tail gut is a little bit shorter than the standard nylon tail gut I found on my viola. I found my viola nylon tail gut to be 14 cm and the titanium tail gut is 12.5 cm. I found that the average violin nylon tail gut varies from 12 cm to 11 cm. The Titanium violin tail gut is 11.3 cm. Also, be prepared to have to modify the tailpiece to get the titanium tail gut through the holes.
