The TR-1 is the first in the TR - Series Allen Traditional Design I have been asked by
many over the years for a traditional looking tailpiece in one of our one
piece solid cast designs. We introduced the first TR model in 2001. We
have several variations based on our original TR design.
MADE IN USA!!!!
One piece cast design(no more lost, stuck or
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
The Allen TR-1mandolintailpiece was designed to
be used as a retrofit on your existing instrument as a replacement,
but will work equally well on new mandolins.. 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.
