I realize this topic has been discussed, but not quite like this. I have an old cello that has a fingerboard projection of 74mm. This is quite low, 6-8mm by modern standards. The cello sounds good, and is a bit meaty. I am afraid that if I boost the projection, it will only become more meaty and harsh. I have found that celli with too low of projection tend to sound like I am playing on pillows, though this does not. Do I keep it with a French bridge that has a lower arch, or do I correct it? Does the 82-84mm standard apply to older instruments?
