"Perfect Post" opinions?


Recommended Posts

For a while now, I've seen this ad in Strings magazine for the "Perfect Post". Has any one out there tried this sound post or does any one have an opinion on the effects it has, or may have on a violin? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have had firsthand and, moreover, very favorable

experience with the PerfectPost.

It is essentially a soundpost with two perlon feet

at each end, flat and connected by a ball & socket

joint to the post- the connection is complete,

so that maximal vibration is transferred from the

belly to the back.

Basically, it a) saves a lot of time for fitting

the post because the feet adjust themselves, :)

results in a /better/ overall fit because (again)

the feet are wedged in nicely, and c) because of

the better fit, acheive maximal vibration transference,

and hence more sound.

My violin's tone was brightened and its projection

greatly increased- I was VERY pleased!

Keep in mind that the post still has to be properly

adjusted in terms of its length and relationship

to the bridge! :>

The fellow who sells them is named David Dunn, a

luthier/violinist in Sunny Valley, Oregon. If you

would like, I'll get you his telephone number (the

same as the one in the advertisement).

Let me know!

I have a Perfect Post and would not give a dollar for it. It is difficult to intall, it has the patent number printed up the post in gaudy green ink, and frankly, I could not tell if an improvement occurred with

this post installed when compared to a properly fit regular post. With spruce costing a lot less (the perfect post is around $50), I don't think a properly fit post, fit the old fashion way, can be beat. My

Perfect Post now occupies a place with my other spare posts in a jar.
