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.
I was impressed with the first one I purchased and so I purchased a second one for another fiddle. I could tell the difference in the volume and tone of my instruments.
Great product - increased overtones, easy to install and set the proper after length. Recommend over nylon tail gut. Fiddlershop has excellent prices and customer service. Highly recommend.
My current combination is titanium tail gut, and endpin, pernambuco harp style tailpiece, Kaplan vivo strings, and ebony pegs , on a tower strings legend. This combination more than doubled the power of the violin, making it easier to play in many ways. It also brought out my flaws which more clearly showed me what I needed to work on with my playing style. It is a bit pricey, but is also well worth the money. I will be be using titanium on everything from now on. Definitely would reccomend the titanium fittings.
I definitely can tell a difference..more resonance.. with more overtones coming through... bought 2 so that I can experiment more easily with different instruments.. well made.. thanks
