    Violin Tail Piece and Tail Gut

    Here at Animato Strings, we provide a variety of tailpieces and tail guts that can be specifically tailored to suit your instrument. Thanks to our on-site workshop and the craftsmanship of our talented luthiers, we provide a unique service as we can optimise the tailgut/tailpiece combination to achieve the best possible sound for your violin. 

     

    The tailpiece serves as an anchor for the strings as well as a spacer for each one. The main factors to consider in tailpiece selection are; material, size & shape, weight and proper placement. Common materials used are ebony, boxwood, rosewood, pernambuco, aluminum and  plastic synthetics.  Denser woods like ebony tend to brighten and focus an instruments tone, where softer woods can deepen and warm up the sound.
