The latest innovation in set-up is the tailcord made of a high-tech multifibre braided cord made of Dynema.
Very flexible, it increases the mobility of the tailpiece, close to the main source of resonance, the bridge. Nine times as strong as steel wire, it does not stretch after it has been fitted, and so maintains the luthier’s original set-up. Delivers an unequaled sound transmission. Compared to the traditional loops of nylon, steel or even gut, this tailcord is more efficient and does not diminish the natural resonance of the instrument.
Players will find:
- Greater ease of playing, particularly in the upper registers of each string;
- More immediate and powerful response under the bow.
This small accessory will be of real benefit to your instrument. We recommend having Tailcord professionally fitted.
