Upgrade old-time banjo

The Prucha Presto tailpiece on my old-time is to low for the Paramount arch pot so I hope the clamshell tailpiece is a little bit higher for the strings to get over the "hump" with a little bit more clearance. In any case I know Prucha makes top quality tailpieces.

I love the look of the old Grover Clamshells.... really Art Deco... the problem was the newer versions were / are awful. Not the Prucha version. Extremely well built, just like the old Grovers and not to be confused with cheap imitations.

A really great classic tailpiece. Highly recommended !
