Mat Roop Posted March 17 Report Share Posted March 17 I see these tailpieces on many old violins but really am not a fan. The strings spacing at the tailpiece is 33mm.The normal bridge spacing of strings is 33mm. So what happens is that the strings continue parallel behind the bridge which to me looks odd. The Wittner and other tailpieces otoh, that I am familiar with, have the string spacing at 28mm which means that beyond the bridge the strings converge , and that looks normal to me. Question is.... is there a tonal impact on the wider string spacing at the tailpiece? Thanks... Mat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
