If you took your instrument to a luthier and asked her to check it for "wolf tones", what would you expect this person to do?
My experience involved the luthier just playing the open strings, trying a harmonic on the D string, and declaring it to be OK.
I expected, at the very least, to see some exploration of the B-C-C# notes in the higher registers on each string. For some reason, I have the "insight" (or lack of it) that this is where the wolf tones are most likely to be, on any violin.
