THE SOUND POST MATE - Sound Post Inserter / Setter / Remover

This little Post 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.

The sound post inserter is

The sound post inserter is a great idea. Why did it take so long to come up with such a simple tool? I use it in conjunction with a conventional sound post tool, using the inserter to put the sound post in place, then positioning it with the sound post tool... when I like the fit I tighten the strings and take the inserter out.

Insurance policy

I like to tinker with my violins… give the sound post a nudge, swap out tailpieces, adjust the after length … so I figure it’s just a question of when and not if my sound post will fall. This little gadget is my insurance policy for when that time comes.

Neat little tool.

It took a bit of getting the hang of using the inserter. After some practice it became easier to use. One perhaps insignificant difference is that it does not leave a mark on the post.

It worked well

I needed to reset the sound post and this worked better for me than the sharp edged type
