bkwood Posted March 22 Report Share Posted March 22 I tend to use a spring clamp tool to get a violin post standing before pushing it around with the traditional tool. Recently I saw a youtube video claiming to vastly improve a violin's sound by not stabbing the post (make it sound $10,000 more expensive!!), like what I generally do. I started considering that since a post is a small, carefully selected, piece of wood for transmitting vibrations, forcing the grain open to install it might not be a good idea. Why does the old tradition persist? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
