At the suggestion of the luthier, I got the fingerboard of my violin raised, under the promise that it would sound better. What a hope... The result was just the opposite. There was a loss of about 30% of the original amplitude and now it sounds disgusting. The fellow told me the sound will improve very soon, as far as I keep on playing, but I just met someone who had the violin repaired long ago and never got the old good sound back. I am already regretting... Any advise?
And also the fingerboard is sticky and I cannot glide my fingers with easiness. How to clean it?
