Polishing Edward

Edward #5 Setup to Play his first tunes

Today Edward, Violiln #5, was setup and played in the white. Edward was started in February of 2014. When I went to the Tuscon violin making workshop, Edward’s ribs were done and the plate edges were trimmed. Today setup was completed in the white, prior to varnishing. The reason I’m setting up Edward before varnishing is to take a set of sound recordings before and after the varnishing process. By analysing the pre and post sound samples, I’ll be able to determine what affect the varnish process has on the sound. As I complete more instruments I will be able to see how the sound developes, always making refinements for more and more quality in the instruments.
