dpappas Posted December 16, 2019 Report Share Posted December 16, 2019 In previous threads, an anecdote emerged about Rene Morel thumping a ruler that was hanging off the table, and retracting it as it oscillated. It was related to sound post fit and tone. I've been thinking about this (and whacking metal rules for a good twenty minutes), and I'm asking the experts if my understanding is correct. A tighter post would allow less vibration, but would also favor higher frequencies. A looser post would allow more plate movement, but at the same time would favor higher frequencies. I know this is an oversimplification, but I found that shaving a think slice off a sound post and putting it in the same position resulted in a similar effect, a deeper tone.
