Sellmansberger 3-Piece Screw Shanks

All shanks are cup model specific, unless otherwise noted.

Solo: The difference between the Solo #1 and #2 is the backbore. The #1 backbore gives less color, but more focus, whereas the #2 backbore is more open with a slightly wider taper, giving more color to the sound. The Solo #1 backbore is only available in the American exterior taper. The #2 is available in both the American and European exterior tapers.

Imperial: Available in the British, American and European exterior tapers.

Symphony: Can be used interchangeably with the Symphony and Grand cups to give you more options.  The Symphony shanks feature a counterbored throat for fast, low range response. Available in both the American and European exterior tapers.

Orchestra Grand: Can be used interchangeably with the Symphony and Grand cups to give you more options.  The Grand shanks have a more standard, parallell bore, offering more resistance. Available in both the American and European exterior tapers.
