I reviewed the threads from last year about the apparently groundbreaking, "best thing that every happened to my bass," tailpiece cord made by Velvet strings. In the photo I've seen it looks like a simple woven shoestring-like cord. I've been meaning to replace my hard wire "tailgut" for a while now. I was leaning towards a <$4 trip to Home Depot for aircraft cable and a fastener. I'm reluctant to shell out $27 for a piece of string unless there's a really big difference. "Honest dear, this is special string... it must be, it cost me $27" Does anyone have any updated information or opinion on this thing?
