this can be such an exasperating forum sometimes.
Problem: does breaking in even really happen? if so what is it? vibration of the timber. What does it happen to change - tone, response, quality of sound? How to we measure it? Instruments dons't seem as good as the human ear, but ears forget over time, and things change. So many problems.
made by the same maker, listened to by a bunch of violinish droogs all in the room at the same time, listening. One violin had been played in, one was new. and what did they find?
(thankyou to the other responders who tried to list this on the previous thread, with NO RESPONSE, because anyone who did respond was just bitchin between themselves!)
Oh, and there was also no answer to my question about why a played in violin would 'forget' that it had been played in if it was layed to rest for a while (how long does it take to forget) (under what conditions); And if it is about the vibrations, why can't the vibrations from playing regularly in part of the string work? I would like to know these things. I also notice that Joseph, OP from last thread retreated to a safe place.
