I play a George Chanot Cello. At my first two rehearsals for an upcoming performance of the Del Aguila Cello Concerto I ran into some projection/balance challenges. I rushed to install my new ConCarbo French style tail piece, and yesterday at the dress rehearsal it was WOW. Powerful tone, great colors, and super-response. Same hall, same orchestra, same podium, same cello and strings, just the ConCarbo difference. I am excited for the performance today, I’m so much freer to play with the phrasing and colors since I don’t need to work as hard. Compare prices to other carbon fiber tailpieces and the choice is very simple: Get the ConCarbo.
