David Stiles Posted March 15, 2022 Report Share Posted March 15, 2022 My number 3 violin has been strung up for about two months now and has just completed an orchestra concert series. I'm giving it 8.5/10 but I am biased. Really, I am really happy with it, powerful, nice tone, well balanced across the strings, rich G, and the E really sings. It is so close to being an excellent violin however there is an issue with dynamic range which I would love to be able to fix. The player says that it is a little difficult to play quietly. I have no playing skills but I can see that with the old German violin which is our 'benchmark', I can get a nice tone with even the lightest touch of the bow. With this (my number 3 violin) I can't, it needs a just a little more bow pressure & movement to get going. Body resonances, weights and setup parameters are in the usual range. I can post lots of the numbers if it helps. Is there likely to be anything setup-wise that I could do to improve this? Perhaps it just needs more time, or maybe it is just inherent in the instrument!
