I'm a college student looking to upgrade my instrument to one in the 12-15k range. I've looked at a bunch of shops in NYC and LI, and still have a ways to look.
One of the instruments that i've come across sounds lovely, but has tremendous problems on the third space C (on the staff)...on both the G and D strings.
How do i incorporate the knowledge of this wolf tone on an instrument when searching/choosing a violin that i'll want to live with for a long time?
My current instrument has a wolf in the same area and i use a wolf eliminator...although i adjust it and my bridge regularly to silence the wolf, it still gets muddy around the c. Are there any further adjustments other than experimenting with different strings, checking the environment/humidity, etc.?
Along the same lines...In your opinion would you personally look for an instrument which is more playable over tone/projection?
