    How Stradivari's sound changed

    I'm not asking how Stradivari's sound changed from when it was made to what it is now. Rather I'm asking anyone has insights on how his violin sound evolved over his long career from earlier period to later. Maybe it is futile to speculate because many had been repaired/modified over the years so we may never know how his violin sound evolved during his career, but I hope someone has read or know something about this. Do his later violins sound better than earlier ones in general?

    Maybe you should count ribs and overhangs twice?

    Top center joint gluing suction gap...

    I use big gap for fresh wood, smaller gap for aged wood. But the distribution of gap is much more important than the size of the gap. I use a strong clamp and use wedge in the center for cello or violin.

    Reasons for linings let-in to lower block?

    My guess is this violin was made using outside mold?

    New stop length?

    Wether it is fair or not, we need some kind of standard measurements. I think that current body length was optimised for the sound not for the playability. And interchangability is important even if you just play your own violin for a long time. Are we going to make a bigger (or smaller ) keyboard piano for large hand ( or small hand)?

    New stop length?

    Because full size means full, 4/4. A.S. did it 300 yrs ago, long period, short lived. Why want to do it again?
