Sound Adjustments


An instrument may need to be adjusted to a players characteristics, which can sometimes just be achieved by minimal intervention like moving the soundpost or bridge. In other cases it might be advisable to look at the structural functioning of the instrument as a whole and look at the setup overall. This includes the positioning of the bassbar, the angle and direction of the neck in relation to the body, the bridge, the soundpost and other aspects like tailpiece and strings.
