Tailpiece Problem

[ Follow Ups ] [ Post Followup ] [ WWWBoard ] [ FAQ ]

The steel strap wire that holds tailpiece on my upright has slipped to one side. The point where the steel wire makes a right angle and goes up to the tailpiece is displaced to the left about 20 mm. I am going to loosen the strings and reposition the strap.

I have no idea how this could have happened since the instrument has not been dropped or otherwise abused. It would appear it would take a tremendous amount of energy to move the strap.

Anybody seen this happen?
