dpappas Posted September 7, 2018 Report Share Posted September 7, 2018 Hello MN! I have a tailpiece that I’m going to try out on my violin. It’s a little shorter so it might increase my after length since my current tailgut is pretty short already and there is no room for adjustment. I’m suspending the tailpiece by a few old strings and have a 10 lb weight tied to the tailgut to “pre-stretch” the nylon tailgut. I know David Burgess has a jig to stretch cello tailgut, so this is a makeshift version of it. My goal is to minimize the stretch so when my luthier swaps it out the length will be close to what I want. Of course there is wrapping around the button and settling over the saddle as well, I’m just trying to eliminate a variable. Does anyone else else do this?
