our latest in tailpiece designs by Randy Allen. Based on the
Allen TR-1 it is slightly
heavier and a bit more rigid. Incorporates our Teardrop peg
design and has a matte interior. (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. Click here for

One piece cast design(no more lost, stuck or rattling coverplates!!)

"I wanted to tell you that I thought your website
testimonials were cherry picked sales hype. But, I wanted to
try the tailpiece anyway. I bought a gold TR3 and installed
it on a good, handmade mandolin. Am I glad I
did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have found the testimonials on
your site are like what Festus used to say on Gunsmoke, “No
brag; just fact.” I have 30% - 50% more volume, splendid
sustain and the clarity is outstanding. I will never go
back. This tailpiece is a home run. Regards, Bob A"

"I am delighted with the tailpiece I have fitted it to a carved top
mandolin made by Oakwood instruments of Leeds U.K. .The sustain
and depth of tone have really improved since I fitted it .
It has improved the instrument a lot more than I expected it to
have done. Thank you.
The reason for my email is that I would now like to fit a TR3 to
a 1929 Gibson model A0 I have .and also I should like a TR10 to
fit a 10 string Mandola I have. Both of which would be Nickel."

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)
TR-3 "Hey Randy. I just wanted to drop you a line
and let you know that Jesse Brock just had your tailpiece installed.
My god what a difference!!! It enhanced both the tone and volume
of what was already an awesome instrument. I just played it last
weekend, and I'm blown away. I'm sure you'll be hearing from
him. Thanks. Mike Cleveland"

I love the way Jesse plays mandolin! Always been a huge
fan! Thanks Jesse!......R. Allen
