A string weak in high registers?


Recommended Posts

One violin I have has nice strong tone all over the fingerboard...except with the A string, but only in the higher registers (mostly in 3rd position from the E note up). I have tried different A strings (from different brands) and they all do the same thing. In first position all notes are strong, and there is good balance across all the strings. I have inspected the fingerboard scoop in the suspected area and see nothing wrong. There is no problem with the other 3 strings.

Tone and balance is so good otherwise that I hate to touch the post. What else should I consider?
