The Allen AR-2 mandolin tailpiece was designed to be used as a retrofit on your existing instrument as a replacement. (works with Ball end or Loop end strings) The screw holes will line up with the hole pattern made by the standard stamped tailpiece. The end pin will still fit the old location with out any modification.
Jesse Brock plays mandolins fitted with Allen Cast tailpieces, TR-1, TR-3 and AR-2. He called recently and said "they made a huge difference on his mandolin, better volume and sustain, more open tone" (Gibson Sam Bush model)
  • MADE IN USA!!!!   
  • One piece cast design (no more lost, stuck or rattling coverplates!!)
  • Improved Tone, Volume & Sustain!
  • Improved string hitch (easier string changes!!)
  • Holes on the Allen model match standard pattern (no modification of instrument!)
  • End is radiused to fit instrument contour better.

Customer Comments:

Randy,    Good news… the tailpiece fit my “The Loar” A-400 with no modification whatsoever. It looks great, feels great under my arm, and sounds great. Thanks, Casey


Thought you'd want to know I got great results by installing one of your AR-2 tailpieces and some D'Addario J-81 strings on my Trinity College Irish bouzouki. It went from quiet and dull to loud and bright. If anyone wants the hot set-up, this is it. Thanks again for your good advice on this upgrade. I'm absolutely satisfied. Jonathan ................

 

My new AR2 arrived today and what a difference it makes on my 1986 Duff F5! Bare in mind that this mando was close to being sold because it was going dead. After a hard life on the road with the previous owner who played with the Amazing Rythm Aces and Sawyer Brown, it had seen its best days and pretty much gone flat. Your new tailpiece has given it new life with a substantial increase in volume, pop, and sustain. It's like getting a new mandolin. I thank you and also my wife thanks you for keeping a few thousand bucks in our pockets!! Tony.........
