with Saddle & Mutey Hole - Palisander/Pear/Beech + Tail Gut; length: 111 mm
|Length: 111 mm
This is a new type of a tail piece inspired by the historical research of Mr. Damian Dlugolecki. Modern violins and violas have a slightly elevated saddle, supporting the tail gut. Baroque instruments had much lower saddle which resulted in the acoustically less favourable angle of a tail piece. Some preserved baroque tail pieces show that baroque instrument makers had another way of solving this problem. If your instrument has a low baroque-type saddle – it is a tail piece for you.

This model has 2 tail gut holes, large enough for thick gut (2,7mm), important in this set up (the tail gut is included).
This model has the hole specially designed for placing String King's mute. You can have MUTEY close at hand, placed on your tail piece, just a few centimeters away from the bridge.
The string holes are drilled in a way that reduces a risk of strings breaking.
