There are a lot of things that the members of the orchestral string family have in common, not the least of which being that they're all very fine instruments which need to be well-maintained and properly assembled in order to produce their proper sound. For the cello - just like its smaller cousins and its big brother, the double bass - that means, among other things, having a tailpiece that's in good shape and a set of strings that are correctly adjusted. You won't have to look far to find the parts you need to make sure this is the case: they're right here in this selection of cello tailpieces and adjusters, ready to help you keep your instrument sounding its best.

A cello's tailpiece is responsible for keeping the strings aligned at the base of the instrument, as well as withstanding the tension placed on it when those strings are drawn tight. Traditionally, these were made of ebony and that's still an option today with choices like The String Centre Ebony Cello Tailpiece. Modern materials have a few alternatives to offer, though, and if you're an enterprising musician you might like to try something even more durable, such as the Otto Musica Carbon Composite Cello Tailpiece or the Wittner Metal Cello Tailpiece, each of which features four built-in fine tuners to help you achieve perfect tuning.

Another crucial step to getting the best sound out of your cello is to ensure it's properly adjusted, and you can do that with adjusters. One of the top-rated options is the Sacconi Tailpiece Adjuster, which is guaranteed not to strip or break. For a more traditional design, consider The String Centre Cello String Adjusters, the Wittner Cello String Adjuster Double Prong on Tailpiece, or any other axle style adjuster from this section. When used correctly, any one of these should give you great results.

It can be all too easy to overlook the importance of accessories and parts when outfitting your cello, so don't make that mistake! Some players even like to keep spare cello tailpieces and adjusters on hand, which is a great idea if you want to be ready to make a replacement at a moment's notice. Think of it as a little bit of insurance for a cello that's already in playing condition. Or, if you're already in need of a replacement, don't wait a second longer - get started browsing here to pick out your next tailpiece right away.
