  1. Don't worry, I do this purely out of curiosity! I play every violin and only tap afterwards just to see. I'm looking for any sort of perspective and discussion from a purely acoustical and technical point of view.
  2. I'm looking for a new professional violin, and whenever I try a new one I like to tap the tailpiece just to see what it sounds like. Every tailpiece seems to have a different pitch and different decay time, and sometimes a tailpiece will put out a dissonant collection of several pitches at once. I've noticed that on the nicer-sounding instruments I've tried, the tap tone of the tailpiece seems to match that of the body of the instrument (if it's a pure tone). However, from what I understand, too much resonance behind the bridge can cause wolfiness. I'm not a luthier, just a performer, so
  3. They last longer than the regulars because of the coating, but they sound much, much worse, as well as costing $2 more. If you find that the Goldbrokats aren't lasting long enough but like what they do to your violin, you're better off going with a 27.5 Westminster.
