My word, yes! I have a nice fiddle, with lengthened neck added in 1890′s, made a few years before the French Revolution. I added a new bridge, formed to the curve, heart in mouth in case the sound post dropped out. Sounds fine now; I have to laugh a little when at brocantes I pick a shameless wreck of a violin and the stallholder assures me it is old therefore it is a priceless relic and worth the ridiculous price they are asking. I don’t think I’ve found a decent one ever at a brocante.
Hi thanks for the feedback! I am going to do a post on measuring,cutting and setting a soundpost using tools you can make yourself soon, so please check back.
