Do you think violin/viola/cello makers should be able to play their own instruments for optimum sound adjustment? Or for better understanding how to improve their instruments? Personally I do some parts of setup according to "feel", or "sound improvement" rather than sticking to perfect numbers. I spoke with someone long ago who said he would never buy a violin made by someone who cant play violin him/herself. What is your opinion on this? Personally i think it would definitely help to have someone around who can play the instrument, but if you understand the practical part of violin making and crafting, but cant play at concert level, should it matter?
