Clamshell for Prucha top tension

By

Verified Buyer


Great service and speedy turnaround time. Really happy with the delivery speed. I did have some issues anchoring the tailpiece to my banjo. Not sure if it's the fact that it's top tension or not. Once I decided to let it be loose until I put a string on, it held in place nicely and was easy to adjust. My banjo sounds good as before, maybe even better since the old tailpiece was likely dying a slow death until it blew up!

finishing issue

i had to file the burrs off the metal. The tailpiece had sharp ends which caught on fabric and scratched my leather couch.Poor finishing work I had to carefully file after installing.Tedious work on a vintage banjo.Otherwise appears to be high quality.

No problem on the order and tailpiece is exactly what I thought it would be. Prucha has a great reputation on all products. This tailpiece fit the bill, high quality, well made, fit perfectly, strong metal. It deserves a five star rating.

This is not a cheap tail piece. Dry sturdy. SOLID!! Easy to attach. Strong top spring. It is not going to vibrate or buzz. Highly recommend.

Prucha Clamshell banjo tailpiece

By

Verified Buyer


Fantastic service from Stewmac. Arrived in UK in 2 days from order thus justifying the very expensive postage.
The item, ordered in polished brass, was to provide parts for a damaged Grover Clamshell tailpiece on an Epiphone Bandmaster from about 1927. Amazingly, all parts were inter-changeable and the quality of the Prucha product is just brilliant - I cannot speak highly enough of the tailpiece and of Stewmac who provide an outstanding service, albeit at considerable cost.

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 !
