Tension Lock Banjo Tailpieces

Monday, June 27, 2011

Is Your Tailpiece the Weak Link?

When it comes to banjo tone, one of the most overlooked components is the tailpiece. Low string

pressure on the bridge can cause tubbinessand poor fit can cause annoying rattles, buzzing and

even string breakage. Does this sound like your tailpiece/banjo?

Tension Lockbanjo tailpieces are different. Our distinctive tailpieces are designed and machined

with years of expert experience using the latest CAD software. Our ultra modern mill sculpts these

beauties from the highest quality solid brass making our tailpieces strong, precise and great tone conductors.

The kicker though, is flexibility.

Is your D string too loud? Simply turn the adjustment screw to change the finger height and soften it.

Want more bass? Turn another screw and get more bass. Only have a ball end string? No problem,

you can use it. Only have a loop end string handy? You can use it too.

The choice is yours. Keep playing with an obsolete tailpiece, or, install a Tension Lockand dial in

your optimal tone and get the freedom to use either string type. After all, the better your banjo works

and sounds, the better player you can become.

Dont want to alter your vintage banjo? Dont fear. There is most likely a Tension Locktailpiece that

will fit your banjo using original mounting hardware so save the old and play the new!

We know you love your banjo. With a Tension Lock tailpiece, youll love it even more!
