Hello - new to the list and wondered if you could help me? I've just had my violin repaired by a reputable luthier but when I play the A and E strings open I'm getting a harmonic which is a bit unpleasant - also the E string sounds a bit think and squeaky! It doesn't occur on fingered notes or (at least to my ear) on the G & D played open. Is this a set-up fault? Or maybe I just need to get used to my violin again? Is this what people mean when they talk about 'wolf notes'? Any advice would be appreciated. For ref the violin is hand-made in Scotland c1925 and the bow is a fair quality German bow.
