Clamshell Tailpiece

(Customer's Reviews)

Good quality tailpiece. Easy to install and it fit my vintage tenor banjo rebuild like it was made for it. However, the spring tension on the clamshell was so light that it rattled badly on certain chords. Fixed the problem by gluing a piece of ultra-suede inside.


Class act

(Customer's Reviews)

My tailpiece came with strings I ordered. They came lighting fast to my delivery sevice just across the line in Washington. What can I say? Stew Mac is THE BEST. Their online help guys are incredible, a real first class act.


good but a little rattly

(Customer's Reviews)

I like this tailpiece but found it a little rattly. A stick on felt surface saver type thing stuck to the underside of the cover sorted that out.
