dpappas Posted March 25, 2022 Report Share Posted March 25, 2022 I understand that tailpieces can vibrate quite a bit and that, if the frequencies are in playing range it can potentially sap power. I touched my tailpiece (boxwood, 12g, 5 mm gut length with 54 mm after length, nylon) while playing and I was surprised by how much it vibrates. I put some clay (8g) on it and the instrument gets darker/mellower. I wonder how tailgut length/stiffness would impact things. I’m not looking for a change, just some understanding.
