THE SOUND POST MATE - Sound Post Inserter / Setter / Remover
This little "Mate" sound post setter fits easily in a violin case compartment and is readily available for any adjustment work. The Post Mate is inexpensive, versatile and easy to use even by less experienced violin owners. It works great even with smaller size violins and up to a 16-inch viola.
Optimal fitting and placement of the soundpost will make your instrument sound much better. Moving the post closer to the bridge usually produces more power, whereas moving the post away from the bridge will give less power and a form of richness. The tightness of the post also has an effect on the violin. A post that is set too tightly will choke the violin and require more bow pressure, whereas a loose soundpost will lack quality and be at risk for falling.
This thing ingenious. I put up a sound post for the first time and it only took a minute!
I love this tool
This tool is certainly easier than the old post setter tool I have and Much easier to use.
Violin sound post setter
The tool came quickly and worked the first time I used it. Great tool. Wish I had it earlier.
I ordered my items when there was a hurricane about to make landfall. Amazingly, it missed the part of FL where fiddlershop is and I got my items on time! I was originally only after a sound post adjuster as that’s all I had ever seen my teachers use, but the sound post setter is a wonderful tool! A necessity in any string teacher’s toolbox!
I used this with very little trouble. Great tool to have around.
