You win a few, you lose a few...

Posted by fiddlepogo on Saturday, March 22, 2008

I recently made some fiddle related purchases. Nothing too huge, but I had hopes. I bought one set of Thomastik Precision Light strings, and put them on the newer Knilling 4KF- big improvement! I bought a couple of condenser microphones from Naiant Studios, and they sound very promising. I bought a couple more sets of the Thomastik Precision Light strings, hoping that a set of them would cure what is ailing the other Knilling 4KF. The strings came today. I just put them on. The fiddle is still sick. The A string in particular sounds weird, kind of muffled, like it has a mute on, but mostly just on that string. Since it started sounding that way after changing an A string a couple months ago, and I thought maybe I'd gotten a dud string, but the new string sounds pretty much the same way. Now I'm hoping a soundpost adjustment by a competent luthier will cure it But I'm somewhat afraid that something else has worked loose inside due to the high humidity we were getting (weeks of rain) at the time the fiddle first started sounding bad.
