The function of every Weber tailpiece is to create an anchor point or foundation for the strings at the base of the instrument. Setting Weber apart as the first company to create and implement a more durable design, we set out to jettison any movement. We landed on our solid one-piece part. Unlike older tailpieces that can be flimsy due to the multiple-piece design, this ground-breaking, one-piece design is a major contributing factor to the signature Weber sound. Weber offers our tailpiece in chrome or gold finish. All Weber tailpieces are crafted in-house.
