5 string ebony tail piece?
« on: Oct 10, 2005, 06:37:12 AM »
I am looking for an ebony tail piece for a 5 string violin. All I can find so far are the metal ones made by Thomastic with built in tuners. Does anyone know a place online that sells quality 5 string tailpieces in ebony?

Mike Soares in New York has them, and he does sell on eBay:

I've gotten quite a few of the "violins in blue/black" from him for my hideous electric violin experiments and been pretty happy with his service. As a disclaimer, I have no relationship with him other than being a happy customer.

I can get them for you.  Also rosewood and boxwood.  Prices vary, obviously cheaper if you buy in bulk.  Email me for pricing adam@adamsweet.com
