I bought this to replace the metal coat hanger the previous owner of my bass had inflicted on it. I did not expect much, to be honest, except that I thought it might look less embarrassing than the obvious coat hanger.

However, I have been pleasantly surprised at the improvement in tone this tailgut has given the bass. It is hard to say exactly what is better, except that there is a richness and colour to the tone that previously wasn't there. I've made a number of improvements to the bass, but this was the first so I had a chance to evaluate the difference the tailgut made on its own before adding it to the raft of changes.

The actual fitting was easy and although the small, two-screwed clamp doesn't look like it is overly strong, in fact it has proved completely up to the job and the tailgate hasn't moved at all.

One installation point - the steel is extremely strong and I decided against cutting it as I was afraid snips or a hacksaw would break apart the steel strands. As a result, I've ended up with a protruding end in an awkward position at the front of the bass. I've taped it back and it doesn't show so all is well in the end. However, a good tip would be to make sure that you check where the ends will be before starting installation, to make sure you're happy you've adjusted the positioning suitably.

Bought this for my plywood double bass, together with a new tail piece.The tail gut was easy to fit and overall improved the sound of my bass.

Cable Cordal/Pica en Acero Inoxidable
Rafa López 11.10.2012
Excelente fabricación, muy resistente. Incluye pieza para trabar la longitud del cable y una llave allen para realizarlo todo en cinco minutos. Se echa en falta algún recubrimiento negro para la zona que queda a la vista y en contacto con la base de la pica, que en nuestro caso es ébano. Muy recomendable en cualquier caso, además de haber pocas otras opciones para realizar esta maniobra en tu contrabajo. Es del tipo de piezas que colocas y ya te olvidas en años.
