Hello everybody I had a Kevlar tailgut on one of my cello. it was about in the middle of the space of the lower bout. I put it there thinking that I was doing that the weight of the tail piece was at its maximum. but it made the 1/6 proportion (distance bridge-tailpiece )to the string length "wrong" (too short 100 instead of the 115 required for the "right " proportion) an other violin maker decided that it should be changed and put the tailpiece at the official distance 115. now the cello has two more wolves :-)) easy to put it back as it was no problem but I was wondering if I was right : the weight of the tail piece is at it maximum when in the equal distance bridge saddle which dampens the wolves why does the shorter tailgut (saddle-tailpiece distance) produce more wolves I was wondering why it happened Any idea ? thank in advance
