recently I heard a veyr good palyer advising an orchestra to put an adjuster on the a string becuase they had sene Oistrakh do it thought it wa sreally convenient for orchestral players. I knew this combinatioin wa smade popular by Oistrakh but I think the soviet player swho adopted it also had a specific stirng combination which included a steel a string.
I am wondering if anyone ha sused an adjuster with an a string Pirazzi, Obligato, Dominant or vision. Did it affetc the sound/string life etc? As far a si know Pirazzi for exmaple were not designed for an adjuster and I thought there were all kinds of factors like stringlength and weakness that may make this inadvisable. Comments from a knowledgeable resoterer, setter uppe rwould be much appreciated, too.
