Upright Bass Ebony Tailpiece

We've added some new options to our beautiful ebony tailpieces, which have always been a worthy upgrade or replacement for any upright bass. They have a uniform black color and are finished and ready for installation; no sanding or staining is required.

They have pre-drilled, vertically oriented tailgut mounting holes, with a cavity on the back surface, allowing you to use virtually any conventional rear-mounted tailpiece cable you choose - any of our many tailgut options will work, from a nylon or stranded steel tailgut, to the more advanced adjustable steel option. Please see the related items (below) for several tailpiece cable options.

The standard four-string model, as shown in the large photo at left, is a very conventional design and should complement any 3/4 size upright bass. We now offer a 5-string model, seen to the right, which is almost identical in design, but is a bit wider to accommodate the extra string. And the beautiful compensated model has different afterlengths for each string, which some players believe can improve low-end response and overtone response. That's all well and good, but you also can't deny that its asymmetrical design is quite attractive.

All models have a traditional design and finish and will look lovely on most any bass. They are sized to fit 3/4 size basses (see sizing below) but may be suitable on some other sized basses as well. The wood, which comes from India, is properly dried and aged to ensure that it will not warp or split.

Length
  • 4-string - 13.5 in / 34.25cm
  • 5-string - 13.875 in / 35.25cm
  • Compensated - 13.875 in / 35.25cm

Width (Top Edge)
  • 4-string - 4 in / 10.1cm
  • 5-string - 4.375 in / 11.1cm
  • Compensated - 4 in / 10.1cm



Note that weights can vary slightly from tailpiece to tailpiece. Representative tailpieces weighed in as follows:
  • 4-string - 11.1 oz / 314.6 grams
  • 5-string - 13.2 oz / 374.2 grams
  • Compensated - 9.9 oz / 280.6 grams
