Cracked Samovar Posted March 2, 2022 Report Share Posted March 2, 2022 (edited) My violin's sound suddenly became weak and hollow one day. I brought it to a luthier and they glued an open seam that had appeared on the top plate, on either side of the neck of the violin. The sound was good for a few days, then a buzz developed. Brought it back and they re-glued the same seam (it had reopened). After this last visit the sound is almost as weak and hollow as it was before bringing it for repairs, but a different luthier could find no open seam or any other issue with the violin. I am at my wit's end, can't bring myself to play the damn thing anymore and really would like to avoid having to get a new one. What can I do now? Is it possible that the seam repair was poorly done? I won't attempt to fix anything myself but maybe there is something I can ask a luthier to do. Thank you Edited March 2, 2022 by Cracked Samovar Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
