Violin Setup & Adjustment
All our violins come fully setup, professionally adjusted, and ready to play. We inspect and correct, among other things, the height, curve, fit, placement, graduation, and tuning of the bridge; string height and spacing at both bridge and nut, tail-gut length and after-length tuning, fitting and lubrication of pegs, proper installation and lubrication of fine tuner(s), and the condition and proper installation of the strings. We select strings to match the character of the instruments, and adjust the bridge and soundpost for optimal tone quality and response. This attention to detail and skilled adjustment of the instrument is what sets our violins apart from much of our competition. We're proud of the violins that we sell.
Although each instrument has its own unique character and tonal qualities, we can adjust your violin, to a certain degree, to meet your needs and preferences. We'd be happy to discuss this with you and make appropriate adjustments to the bridge, soundpost, etc. to achieve the sound you desire. String selection also has a profound effect on both tone color and playability, as does the selection of bow, rosin, bow hair, and other factors.
