    Comments about The String Centre Composite Violin Tailpiece, Built-in Adjusters:

    This type of tailpiece will do wonders for your violin. I rebuild and repair vintage and antique violins for resale and use this type of tailpiece with the built-in fine tuners regularly on my instruments. The advantage of built-in fine tuners is the added string length you will gain between your tailpiece and the fiddle bridge (known as the "return"). The added string length at this point will add to the harmonics and sustain of your violin, producing a much better-sounding tone and added resonance that may surprise you.

    This tailpiece, while being very inexpensive, will produce the same effect as the similar metal "Thomastik" tailpiece that was introduced in the early 20th century, which also has the built-in fine tuners and is also MUCH more expensive. This lightweight version is made of a dense, lightweight, and almost indestructible plastic material, and is easy to install. The tailpiece seems to be of excellent quality, and it even comes with it's own nylon adjustbale tailgut. Since the tailgut is made of nylon, you should expect some stretching for the first few hours, which is normal,so be patient. The fine tuners and inserts are made of brass and seem to work nice and smooth (especially if you take each thumbscrew before installation and rub the threads across a little candle wax). This tailpiece will also cut down on the added weight of a wooden tailpiece + the 4 metal fine tuners, and that alone should noticeably add to the resonance of your fiddle.

    You owe it to yourself to pick up one of these nifty tailpieces and try one neck time you change strings - I think you'll hear a real difference in the sustain and added resonance that will come from your violin.

    Comments about The String Centre Composite Violin Tailpiece, Built-in Adjusters:

    I bought the 4/4 size tailpiece. When it arrived, it said 4/4 on it. But it actually was a 3/4 size. So order one size bigger. But for 4/4, get the Wittner "Ultra" Plastic tailpiece
