    Got a new Thomastik-Infeld 218A 5-String tailpiece with fine tuners - unused in the original box with paperwork and accessories. It has been in storage, so the retail box is worn, but the tailpiece itself has never been used and is still wrapped in the factory plastic. These sell for $199 everywhere else.

    It's the same one as this:
    Amazon.com: Thomastik-Infeld 218A Tailpiece Bass, 4/4 Size, 5-String: Musical Instruments

    By combining the traditional tailpiece with four built-in fine tuners, Otto Infeld created a tuning system which has remained unsurpassed to the present day as the solution for the problem of fine tuning. The elegant main body of the tailpiece is produced in modern pressure die-casting. The fine-tuning screws can be supplied in black or gold. Our tail clinch wires are produced in steel for all instruments, while violinists have the extra choice of a tail clinch wire in nylon for ease of fitting. Our fine tuners are optimized in size and weight for Thomastik-Infeld strings. The Infeld tailpiece allows the whole length of the string to vibrate freely, without the need for an additional ridge between tuner and bridge which could weaken the ball end and hamper resonance.

    • Cast in high grade metal alloy
    • Integrated fine tuners with brass screws in brass bushings.
    • Wide adjuster claw to accept modern thick string bindings
    • Easy to fit nylon tailgut
    • Made in Austria
    HUGE PRICE DROP! SELLING FOR $175 $100 shipped in the US. International shipping is no problem, just PM me for a shipping quote. Thanks for the interest!
