Tailpieces  OME Sweetone Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Overall Comments

After reading some positive comments in a BHO forum I called Tanya at Ome and ordered their (relatively) new Sweetone tailpiece in Nickel finish. It was about $40 with shipping. It replaced the no-knot that my Ome Juniper 12" came with originally. The overall effect on tone was an increase in clarity and intonation (which comp bridges hadn't completely resolved). The banjo is a wood rim so i was looking to gain a touch of brightness as well but it really didn't move it too much in that direction. You can listen to a comparison sound file on my member page and decide for yourself but i would definitely recommend the part. It is handsome and well made. One down side is that it is somewhat more difficult to string than the no-knot.

Overall Rating: 9
