ToneRite for Violin Review
All new 3rd Generation! Fits 4/4 and fractional-sized violins.
We have now released the all-new 3rd generation ToneRite® for violin! These 3rd generation models are hot off the press and represent the newest and most advanced ToneRite® yet. The violin ToneRite® is our premier example of technology meeting tradition. Every aspect of the ToneRite® has been meticulously crafted and designed to ensure optimal performance and safety. The ToneRite® fits over the bridge of a violin and transfers energy into the body via the same physics as when it is being bowed. Some of the improvements of the 3rd generation are provided below.
All New Electronics! The ToneRite® electronics have now been updated to be better than ever. This update allows for much finer control over intensity and harmonic content while being in-line with the ToneRite® for ease-of-use.
New Elastone™ Feet! After over a year of research, we are finally releasing our new Elastone™ feet. These feet not only fit better and are safe for long term use on instruments but also improve the energy transfer from the ToneRite® to your instrument. The result is a quieter, more efficient, and faster device.
An initial ToneRite® treatment of 72-144 hours is recommended. It will be the first step in achieving your instrument's top potential. Subsequent treatments will be required to maintain and further develop your instrument. The ToneRite® is not designed to make a poor instrument great, it is simply designed to bring out the best in an instrument. Your instrument will retain its individual character, with enhanced balanced tone and playability.
I wonder how this isn't the most pushed product on the market amongst musicians. I became a violin collector because I was in search of the perfect violin sound. It became an addiction. (FYI, my favorite and best violins come from the fiddlershop.) I currently have 2 tonerites. It does exactly what it says it will do. It opens the violin up, gives it more flavor, makes it easier to play, warms it up before playing, it improves the overall sound. It has worked on each violin I've used it on, and I will use it on every violin I acquire in the future. The infamous d on a string that seems almost muted on some violins will come to life. A lot of the frustrations a new player experiences is from having a new violin that hasn't been played in. Since you dont know that, you get discouraged. But it's not just for new violins. It even works with seasoned violins and adds more seasoning. It can make a harsh violin sweeter. Hands down, this is my favorite violin tool.
