Update: She had it installed and has been trying it out. She demonstrated it in my lesson today on how to change the timbre by adjusting the tighteners at the bottom. You can definitely hear a difference. She is going to work with it a bit longer and I will post anything she discovers. She didn't mention anything about the length. I keep mine at around 14" when playing. That does seem a big restriction on it. I am wondering if it has to do with stability with the 2 tightening screws. Curious.

I think a comparative demo like this

should be very useful.
