Hello everyone. I just got a new violin. It sounds and looks great...except for one oddity I never experienced before. I'm almost positive it has a wolf tone. The "thing" appears when I'm playing a simple D octave in first position (low: open D string/high: 3rd finger on the A string). Each time I play this "note" it sounds terrible, out of control and buzzing - exactly like a cello's wolf tone. I didn't know it could even happen on violins. Is there a way to fix the problem?
