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 is the second Sound Post mate I've owned. Reluctantly, I gave my first one away to a master fiddle maker who was equally as impressed as I am. This little tool makes setting a sound post really easy to do.
I recently purchased a concert violin. I am disappointed with the overall finish. My apprentice violin has a much better color and finish.
It was very easy to do it with sound post inserter. Thank you for the items .Felix.
So far have been very pleased with the setter but it does take some time to learn how to properly use it... Not quite as easy as the movie shows it to be but with more experience I am sure it will get easier...
Worked well for me.
