Carbon Composite Violin Tailpiece with Fine Tuners
This was purchased to replace the original tail piece. The fine tuners on the latter had some sharp edges and were cutting the strings. The new tailpiece was easy to install using positioning guidelines from the internet. It takes about 2 weeks for the nylon attachment cord to finish stretching. After that, tuning seems to last for several days (I'm using the Fiddlerman string set). The fine tuners are set high enough so that complete tightening does not risk damage to the violin surface underneath them. They are position so that the appropriate 1/6 th distance of the nut to bridge distance for the fine tuners to bridge distance is easily set up. The adjustable nylon cables work great and were easy to use. Best of all, my inexpensive student violin actually sounds better with this tailpiece than with the original wood tailpiece. The price is also a real plus.
I purchased this tailpiece for my daughters 1/2 size violin. Upon comparison this tailpiece’s quality visually was superior. One installed my daughter noticed not only her violin was lighter but the sound quality improved. The main takeaway is the ease of the fine tuners! They are very responsive to fine adjustments and made tuning a breeze.
great people to work with
These tailpieces work great, are light weight, and function well. I've installed several of these and they are consistently good.
Great products and customer service
Decent fine tuner
So far it’s been working great! Really glad the shop was able to assist in recommending a new fine tuner.
