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.
I’ve never been able to reset violin soundposts. With this tool, I did one in under a minute! It’s a lifesaver during busy rehearsals.
Sound post blues
After watching Fiddlerman video, was able to triumphantly reset my soundpost with new tools. Great investment and always very pleased with these folks. Thank you Fiddlershop!
The right tool for the job.
This tool enabled me to place the sound post on a fiddle I was restoring. I had watched videos online to learn the process of measuring and placing the post. The quality of this tool is just what one needs. You can place the post and then release hold of it as needed.
You sent it very promptly and all seems to be handy
