Daughters 3/4 is going in for adjustment tomorrow before an important performance (to her).
She uses 3/4 Evahs. Wondered if she could use full size
Evah Golds and whether it could make a difference.
Her sound and tone good for 10 year old. Noticed E in high register could ring more and G in higher could be better. She could use a bit more projection in auditorium space. I know some is her and some violin.
Not trying to fix anything wrong, she sounds good.
We are putting on new strings anyway, bow rehaired and adjustment.
The violin was purchased over 6 months ago and first time to luthier.
Be nice I am on a steep learning curve. Yes, talking to teacher..
Full-size strings on a 3/4 instrument will have much less tension than 3/4 strings. Probably too little to be ideal for most violins/people.
I would not switch to untried set of strings before performance. Fractional size strings are there for a reason...some people studied the subject and came to conclusion. Theoretically thicker strings could sound better on a shorter mensure, but why re-invent the wheel?
Ok, had just read prior threads before posting that you could, so good to clarify.
At this level, should I have her play something for luthier
If you both got the time, take your daughter with you. Your luthier could lister to her playing, and you can discuss the issues you mentioned before (regarding the E and G string)
Yes, she is going. She has about 10 days. In our experience
Great! 10 days seem to be really ok!
Violin spent the day at Luthiers. Sounds a lot better.
Rondo is part of Thomastik's "luthier" line. The strings look like Dominants, but play and sound more similarly to Evah Pirazzis.
