Dare to Think!


Sunday, December 1st, 2013


When someone purchases a used cello or violin, the buyer should be aware that the soundpost inside may not be real or built for that instrument. This is especially true for cellos. They are more expensive to build and some sellers just put in a dowel that is approximately the correct size and shape. Not many string repair people know how to build one or install it properly. It takes an experienced luthier to install it correctly. It is important for the soundpost to be from the correct wood and have straight grain lines that are perpendicular to the grain found on the top of the instrument. These properties cause the sound to be properly transferred to the back of the instrument.
