Simple effective upgrade at a low price
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: I purchased a new fiddle which had a rosewood tailpiece with adjusters added. I replaced this with the Wittner tailpiece which gives me more distance between the tailpiece and bridge and has improved the stability of the instrument - it stays in tune better. The tuners are also easier to turn and it makes the use of my Roth-Sihon sliding mute much easier.

Cons: none

Good product - does all it promises
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to fit to the fiddle and fitting the strings was also easy. I liked the options for adjusting the length of the nylon tail gut. The fine tuners are smooth and light to use for my now rather arthritic fingers.

Cons: Nothing - I have bought another for my other fiddle.

Witner integrated fine tuners the way to go
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lightweight easy to fit. Good piece of kit. it is a good tailpiece. For replacing a heavier tailpiece with separate fine tuners. Just the job.

Cons: None ..

Other: MY APPROACH Commandeer kitchen table or other large flat surface. Remove the chin rest taking care not to scratch violin. I used a thick wooden cocktail stick with a blunted end to loosen the chin rest bracket; but there is a cheap specialist tool available. Take care and compare new with old tailpiece dimensions, paying particular attention to the loop size. Remember to check the position of the bridge because once the strings are loosened the bridge is a free component. The little notches halfway down the f holes are a good indicator to line the bridge (my amateur view and matched with the positiion of the bridge before I loosened the strings). Remember the lower side of the bridge is on the E string side. Make new loop a smidge shorter (half the gut width) to take into account stretching. Allow about a day to allow tail piece to settle then peg/fine tune. Avoid soundpost becoming dislodged by taking care not to move violin when all strings are detached from old tailpiece and attached to new tailpiece. I connected G and A before moving violin, essentially once a string is tensioned the soundpost should be secure. As an amateur I needed the extra security of the A string. Reattach chin rest. Tune up and have a good old scrape, play a tune. You may have to retune frequently until tailpiece settles. I left violin for a day re-tuned and it was fine.

Excellent tailpiece
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to fit and adjust so that the string afterlengths were correct. Smooth screw action for each string with no buzzing or vibrations and there is good allowance for adjustment without any undue projection of the claws beneath the tailpiece. I play on an 1850 Dereazey and find the tone with this tailpiece is as good as if not better that my previous ebony tailpiece.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind

Pros: I bought this to improve the 1:6 string ratio that I didn't have using four fine adjusters. It did the job very well and I will be getting another one for another fiddle I have.

Cons: No cons.
