Report What happens if bass bar and soundpost are reverse? in The Pegbox Posted 9 hours ago 5 hours ago, David Beard said: Interesting experiment. I would have expected the string switch to manifest more differences. The thing is, more than often our premade assumptions prevent us to explore new variables of the existing concept. I have to say clearly that making alterations and expecting a ‘positive’ result just by doing it, usually doesn’t work. Each alteration needs the sound re-calibration for the entire structure mostly to get rid of the negative side effects.
