Baroque set-up


Recommended Posts

To those of you who deal with baroque instruments, how do you set the string heights for a violin? While some makers might have a standard set up, there's a lot of room for variation in fingerboard length. Do you measure a normally set-up modern instrument at the intended fingerboard length? I'm trying to set up a violin with a 250mm fingerboard, and I'm looking for a good rule of thumb.
