Hi i have a stentor student 2 from the 80's. im new to violin. My teacher has pointed out that the G string finger positions are a few millimeters towards the nut compared with the A and E strings. that explains why any fingered note on the G never sounded in tune. and the same goes for the D string but not by as much. she sugested asking the luther to maybe shave the nut or adjust the shape of the bridge. Ive asked my luther and he said that isnt the problem at all and that i should just change the D and G strings. Now i see how the old strings could alter the sound quality. but i dont see how they would alter pitch that much. so could somebody please give me a second opinion because my teachers explanation seems to make more sence to me. Thankyou
I ordered a new Dominant silver D string online. The thread at the end which inserts into the tailpiece was all bunchy and weird, and it looked like the string was sort of misshapen there, as well. I'm thinking this is a used string they sent me? Or do they sometimes just come with bunchy thread?
