Tailpiece

The special characteristic of the Per Tech tailpiece is that the part of the fiber (which serves the
suspension and is threaded at its end) which moves back and forth is put through one and the same drilled
hole. This way tensions resulting from twisting going in opposite directions don't come into existence at
the end of the tailpiece since the lower end can swivel in an unrestricted way. This suspension is much
safer and the tailpiece can resonate freely which is audible in the tone.

 

The new suspension caused by tightening the strings causes the tailpiece to lie in the right plane, corresponding to the arch of the bridge.

 

This way, the part of the strings behind the bridge falls into position equally. This is an essential condition for being able to adjust the playing action of the strings evenly.
