Buying an Oettinger Tailpiece

Buying an Oettinger tailpiece is something that many banjo players aspire to. They are a fantastic example of Form and Function. That is, they look great and they actually do improve the sound of a banjo when set up right.

If you are looking for an original Oettinger tailpiece for sale, be prepared to have to dig deep into your pockets and spend a lot of time searching for examples to buy.

Occasionally you can find Oettingers on auction sites such as eBay and specialist sites such as Banjo Hangout or Bill Camp Banjos.

Oettinger Tailpieces for Sale by Lyndon Bespoke Banjo

I make a high quality modern version of the Oettinger tailpiece. They are cast in brass in small batches, then they are machined and polished before carefully being assembled. The 'fingers' are fitted individually so as to assure a tight fit. The thumbscrews on this replica have the correct straight knurling and are the same size and the same thread as the originals. The thumbscrews are also available to purchase

Please note that although I am based in England, I ship worldwide by fully insured secure postal services.

Also note, that if you don't see what you are looking for or if you have an idea that you want realised. Please get in contact as I like challenges and I like it when dreams come true!
