Frequensator Tailpiece ?
Posted 27 January 2008 - 02:03 AM
some upgrades to my Casino and I love them, and I have always liked the split tailpiece but I know
nothing about them.
Will it dramatically change my tone?
Will it fit on my Casino?
I have seen them for sale at Parts are Parts for $45.00
Will I have to do a new setup for the Bridge etc?
Thanks for the help and I like the EPI new forum
I just hope I don't get removed

Some don't, but that's ok. To each his own. I think they look like a tribute to the twin towers.
I like your cello collection every time I see it.

"The short fork on the bass side results in a deeper tone. The longer fork is used on the treble side for extra brilliance. The forks are interchangeable for varying tone as well as string tension. Epiphone used them to change the tension on the strings. By making the bass strings longer through the tailpiece, the tension is higher and stiffer, making for a "tighter" bottom end sound, while the shorter top strings would have looser tension and therefore easier to play solos on the higher strings and upper frets of the instrument."

Blasphemy!! Don't you know you're supposed to make your Casino look MORE like John Lennon"s?? Not LESS!!
Forgive them John, for they know not what they do!

I personally find the Frequensator kinda frugly, although it looks somehow ok an on Emperor Regent. When I replaced it with a heavier L-5 tailpiece on my Broadway --- ohmygoodness what an improvement in tone! It sounds much livelier and more present now
