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: http://www.contrabass.co.uk/tailpiec...e_4_string.htm
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.
