I'm having trouble with a rattling/buzzing sound coming from the cello when being played (bowed). My cello teacher (relatively well known in my area and played for 40+ years, ties to the BSO) and I cannot figure out why it is making this noise. Here is my setup: 2009 Stringworks Soloist III Cello with nice warm Larson Soloist (A&D) and Magnacore (G&C) strings, carbon fiber endpin, wolftone eliminator on the G string, bridge carved by yours truly to a nice height, curve, spacing, dampit cello humidifier. We've thus far eliminated the following possible causes: - wolftone eliminator: it was once loose and makes a very distinguishable sound, that is not this sound - end pin, unlikely - bridge: happened with old bridge as well, good string heights, fingerboard is carved nicely to accommodate C string, - dampit cello humidifier (happens with or without it inside) - bow hair, screw/eyelet loosening, angle: happens with all bows tried on it (about 4 tested), all angles played. - tailgut: adjusted and still occurs I've listed what I remember us trying. We've likely tried more troubleshooting than what I've listed. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!
