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
What do you folks use to file the grooves in nuts? I'm using a cheap China made set of guitar nut files and I sure would like to try something better. Also, I have a really small rat tail file and was wondering if they make them even smaller. Thanks in advance, Dan.
