I was wondering if anyone could point me to any documented evidence of any effect that mounting a shoulder rest may (or may not) have on a violin?
Mostly it seems rather subjective "I played without a SR, and my violin sounded so much more alive!", etc. may simply be the result of a different relation between the player's ear and his/her instrument with/without the SR.
I would've interested if there are any pictures of the effect a SR clamped on a violin back plate may have on the Chladini
patterns? Anybody come across any pics of that?
