Description

Hill (English) pattern tailpiece with 4 fine tuners. Complete with nylon tailgut. Quality and luxury with the convenience of fine tuners. The Pusch tailpiece will give your instrument a traditional look of quality that comes from a solid wood tailpiece. Precision made from solid ebony for maximum tonal range. The discreet tuners have the string anchorage below the tailpiece and each string is supported in a special groove as it exits the adjuster thereby minimising sharp bends in the string which can lead to premature failure. In ebony the tailpiece is 115mm in length and is suitable only for full size (4/4) violins. Please note wood is a natural product and slight colour variations from the photograph may occur.

We do not regard the fitting of tailpieces to be a DIY job and is best left to trained personnel.

  • Solid ebony or boxwood as available.

Classy for less - but adjusters need improvement
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Wooden tailpieces with built-in tuners were limited to products such as those of the Bois de Harmonie, which seem to sell online for comparably prohibitive prices. Hence, such offering as these are welcome. The Rosewood in my purchase is nice enough and attractive. The sound settled down and seems nice, tonally. I might try an ebony one next, for a deeper tone. Now settled in, the adjusters seem to be working nicely.

Cons: I almost immediately took issue to the tuners themselves. They seemed flimsy and wobbly and a bit too free in their turning. The screws seemed to easily misalign with the rockers, hidden beneath the device. I had to set realign them again, which was really fiddly. Certainly fitting the strings' ball ends themselves was no easy or smooth operation. I've had strings snap on me mid-performance, so it pays to have a quick change-over time. The strings can easily become misplaced at the tailpiece, falling off the runner, which can severely damage the string, causing it to fray if you tighten them like this. However, once set correctly and after some time (a couple of weeks, I found) the tuners now seem to have settled down in terms of their resistance to turning.

Other: I might try the Gewa offering, which seems to be similarly priced and possibly have better adjusters, with more convenient access for replacing strings. I'd like to have a look at the Bois de Harmonie products, also.

Very Nice but Take Care with the Adjusters
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Well made tailpiece with very easy to adjust fine tuners. Looks really nice on my violin

Cons: A little tricky fitting new strings and you have to check that your fine tuners are not too close to the violin top when screwed down.
