THE SOUND POST MATE - Sound Post Inserter / Setter / Remover
This little tool fits easily in cello case compartment and is always available for any adjustment work. Is inexpensive, versatile and easy to use even by less experience 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.
I have been using this to fit, set, and fine tune sound posts in three cellos, and it has been an excellent tool. Set the instrument in the cradle, level the whole thing, and use the level (I attached a small level to the tool) to make sure it is positioned vertically every time. Saves a lot of time.
Everything went wonderfully. It works just as advertised.
Great sound post setter!
By far the easiest sound post setter on the market. This transformed an arduous task at best to a relatively easy and controlled insertion. Well worth the purchase! Thank you!
cello sound post inserter / remover
I got sound post adjusters for violin and cello along with sound post inserter/removers for both. They are very nice tools. I ordered them all together and it took longer than expected for them to arrive. It may have been the fault of USPS, not sure. This tool works very well, exactly as shown in the video.
it does it very well!
