Marty Kasprzyk Posted September 8, 2020 Report Share Posted September 8, 2020 We should disassemble great sounding violins and measure all of their component parts' mechanical properties (reverse engineering) and then do the same for lousy sounding ones. This data should be published. I don't believe it is possible to duplicate the whole assembly's performance unless the individual parts are duplicated. This hasn't happened in the past and I very much doubt it will happen in the future. The owners of great instruments don't want lots of new violins made as good as them. Science and engineering is a threat to them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
