A few months ago i bought an antique
Violin. Maded by Oreste Candi.from the
First day i had problem with it's pegs.
There isn't such a professional luthier where I'm living right now.the peg holes are very over sized.
Finally i found a professional luthier in another city.i took my violin to his workshop.and i also bought a set of large pegs (8.6mm at the beginning of the cone.but he didn't use them.he told me they are big and hard to tune.and changing of the seasons will over form them.instead he used some kind of wax.now there is a very fade halo circle aroun each hole.(sorry for bad eng.i don't know how to explain it).but even after doing that my
Problem still didn't solve.each time i want to
Change my strings; D&A are in the way of
E string's peg.(it gets better after using that wax).A string is sticked on the E peg.
I want to know is it a serious problem?
Does it effect the sound?
It bothers me sometimes during the tuning and sometimes completely releases the E string.
I want to ask:
if it's a really bad situation;
I know someone who is traveling to Italy tomorrow night.so if you guys respond to me faster
Whether i should give my instrument to him in order to takes it to Cremona or it's not necessary i would be appreciated.
