I was having a conversation with my local violin luthier, and we were talking about the effect of a good tailpieces on the sound of the violin. He also mentioned how it is unprofessional to use a tailpiece with 4 tuners. I didn't understand why, but I did realize that more expensive violins most often had a single tuner on the E. I would love to hear your responses as to why it is considered to be unprofessional to have 4 tuners. I currently have a single tuner for my E string, and I do not have a problem with just the single tuner, but I was curious to why people may have a problem with 4 tuners.
