The accessories for violins were invented to help musicians improve their musical instrument performances. The violin fittings set allows players to learn new skills while improving old techniques during practice. When using accessories on a violin, it’s important for every violinist to know how these products should be used. Otherwise, you may end up producing sounds that are different from what you intended.
The violin fittings set & accessories that have a great impact on your violin
The bridge and the soundpost are very important, you don’t need to change them frequently, but a few adjustments with your luthier will make your violin sound new/different! The violin bridge and soundpost are parts of your violin that significantly affect the overall sound it produces. If you want to get the best sound out of it, you need to keep these in good shape.
The Tailgut, Fine Tuner and Strings
The tailgut is also an important choice here: a nylon tailgut makes the sound more round, sweet, and free. The Kevlar brings a direct and sharp sound. The tailgut is most commonly sold in thicknesses ranging from 1.90mm to 2.20mm on violins and violas. In contrast, cellos use it around 3.00mm. The thickness will depend on what you want from it. A thicker gut will be more stable, but it won’t allow as much vibration in the tailpiece.
The choice of a violin fine tuner can affect the pitch of a violin. A fine tuner should be small enough not to cause discomfort when used. It should not be too long, and its start should coincide with the tailpiece’s nut so that it does not change the tuning of the E string after length.
Violin strings can have many characteristics and the material also influence them. Having the right set can make a massive difference, as you can get different brightness, tonal quality, and tension.
