Page_Master Posted February 21, 2004 Report Share Posted February 21, 2004 i have just been reading internet articles on violins. i don't plan to build one, well may be in the future, i am just interested in them. anyway, a few weeks ago i believe someone posted a topic saying it was an absurd wasy of judgind tone. contrary to this, i found this article: Science and the Stradivarius and it says: Build quality: how to make a good violin So how do skilled violin makers optimize the tone of an instrument during the construction process? They begin by selecting a wood of the highest possible quality for the front and back plates, which they test by tapping with a hammer and judging how well it "rings".
