Violins that are out of plywood -- can you consider them as junk?
As I understand the wood is what makes the sound resonate. So basically a plywood violin will not resonate much and would be unplayable in a room with bad acoustics, right?
Is it a practical method to test the violin in poor acoustics in order to find out if the material the violin is made out of is plywood? Or is naturally every violin pretty awful to play in bad/no acoustics?
Why is spruce the main material the violin is made out of? What differs it from plywood?
Thank you very much!
I hope you will share your knowledge with me :)
