I had put a Pirastro Oliv E on Booker the Bucharest to cure the high wolf tone (actually now that I think about it, the proper term might be "whistling"'
And a Lenzer Goldbrokat seemed to be working on Estelle the Eastman.
But I got to practice in a bigger room with more normal acoustics today, and the Oliv was WAY ringy on Booker, and the Goldbrokat was a tad weak on Estelle. Then it occurred to me, since I had both fiddles there to just swap them. If I tried the Goldbrokat before on Booker, it was before a lot of tweaks on Booker, so it was worth another try.
And the swap worked, I think, both seemed much improved, although I may take them to the mansion tonight to play under the awning to be sure.

I think the term to remember here is "Note to self" and file it away great to hear you don't have to get a new fiddle though

What about the bow? I've shoe-gooed the tip of my older bow to keep the hair from coming off and then thrown a small dot o' duct tape on top. This professional adjustment has made this bow one of my favourites; moreover, the hair won't dare come loose now.
