"The Bois d'Harmonie tailpiece arrived today and I strung it up immediately. I'm really happy with it! The fine tuners work great, ... the tone is wonderful--my fiddle resonates now, where before it just died as soon as the bow stopped moving. This is exciting! ... Thank you again for all the help! - Will Harmon, A Very Satisifed customer"

"I received the Harmonie cello tailpiece, and it works very well. The sound of my cello opened up immediately with no break-in period. Also, I finally eliminated the annoying rattles and buzzes from the fine tuners.
I appreciate your promptness of service and commend you on an excellent product, one that I can recommend highly to my students.
