Arbutus Fittings offers precision excellence in tailpieces for violins, violas and cellos.
  Arbutus Fine Fittings for Violin Family Instruments.  

Arbutus Fittings is a small business dedicated to the development and production of fine fittings for violin family instruments which offer improved ways to optimize sound. We are located on beautiful Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia in Canada. Our fittings have been carefully designed and developed to aid in the adjustment of instruments to produce their optimal sound. We have been working with the University of Victoria under the auspices of a grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of the Government of Canada to investigate the acoustics of violin family fittings. Our designs reflect this commitment both to scientific excellence and esthetics.

Currently we offer a family of tailpieces in a variety of woods which incorporate a tunable mass to better optimize the resonances of the tailpiece to those of the body of the instrument.
