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
4 out of 5 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.

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

Good product
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

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.

Pros: Quality product, does it's job very well. Makes tuning my Childs violin much easier.

Cons: Bit plasticky, but it's only on a childs violin so function is more important than looks.

A tailpiece which does its job easily and well.

Pros: Light, well constructed tailpiece with excellent integral tuners. I have fitted two to a couple of fiddles now and they have been a big success, holding the tuning well but very easily adjustable using the screws on the fine tuners. The supplied tailpiece gut was easliy fitted and adjusted.

Cons: There was nothing I did not like.

Other: I had tried a cheap no-name tailpiece very similar to the Wittner recently but found it very inferior to the Wittner; the tuners were very difficult to turn when adjusting the tuning under normal tension.

a good tailpiece.

Pros: lightweight, mini adjusters built-in. Tone seems just as good as an ebony tailpiece.

Cons: no cons.
