THE SOUND POST MATE - Sound Post Inserter / Setter / Remover
Violin sizes 4/4 and 3/4
Viola sizes 13" to 16"
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.
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.

Watch the video you post and ordered, thank you, I never set a sound post before and I would Watch your video several times to make sure I was doing what you did and it works. VERY HAPPY THANK YOU.
This is very helpful tool for Sound Post ... Must Have
I work High School Music Service in San Antonio, TX and this thing is a game changer! With no luthier onsite we would have to send instruments with fallen sound posts to an offsite tech- but we can now do this "repair" in house, much quicker, and less frustrating than before!
Still in the package!
My rickety old violin is just itching to eject it's sound post and I want to be ready for that day, hence the premature purchase. Yes, I'll be getting a new violin and maybe a viola too someday and Fiddlershop sure looks like the place to shop!
excellent. took me 3 or 4 tries as a newbie with this. I found your vide INSPIRING. I repired a viola-I found the trick for me was pushing the bottom oof the post till SNUG before Sliding the inserter tool. first 2 or 3 times, post fell off in off inside and had to retrieve it, I have been a bit shy about jumping down this rabbit hole of rpair. Ive ordered glue, and am learning- great store website... I have removed the top of an old violin (God sent) for the first time in 15 or 20years.I have a cello viola and 5 fiddles, and decided to learn to learn repair- especially since they're not hi dollar. EXCELLENT
