The Oldtime model is short for a deep bass response prefered by many oldtime and clawhammer players.  Made of 4 mm chrome plated steel.

Only two parts including the fastening means - yet packed with unique features!

Beautiful design!
Simplicity!   Reliable and sturdy. Only two parts including the fastening means!
Super fast string changes!   The strings are fastened on hooks at the front end
    of the tailpiece.
Unsurpassed stability!   Thanks to the wide support you can retune or even
    breake a string without affecting the pitch of the other strings.
More volume and richer tone!   Thanks to the stability and heavy weight, less
    energy is absorbed from the strings by the tailpiece. The standard models are
    made of steel (which is more silent than brass).
Adjustable sideways!   Place the strings over the fretboard where you want
Fully adjustable height!   You can even lift it above the neutral position.
Easy to mount!   Just loosen one of the tension hooks. Fits most banjos.
