I play a 20's/30's carved German flatback. The tailpiece is ebony with 2 holes on the top where the tailgut loops through, similar to this one:
I was wondering if there is any technical advantage of the "violin style" tailpiece over mine or is it just a style difference?
Is my style of tailpiece uncommon? Is it from a certain style of maker or considered lower quality?
Just curious. Thanks in advance for any information.
I also have this kind of tailpiece and I have seen them rather often on other basses in Germany. I'm not sure if the use of one or the other is significantly higher, but they are not uncommon here.
