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-
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.
