Hi, some weeks ago I ordered a Cecilio Electric silent violin from USA, it came perfectly, I set the bridge and tune the default strings without touching anything more. The problem is that when I play (with a tuner close to me) the first note of every string is very close to the nut making it impossible or unconfortable to play. Today I visited a local luthier and tell my problem hoping to hear something about the nut height or bridge position but he told me that the problem is about the poor quality of the default strings, this is why every note is lower than usual, it could be? What do you think people?
Thanks in advance and sorry for any gramatical mistake, english isn't my mother language!
This seems strange to me. After all, we use the same finger positions for each of the strings G through E even though the various strings are of different thicknesses. Also, I haven't noticed a difference in finger position using steel versus synthetic core strings.
Poor quality strings will probably sound awful, but I don't see how they could cause it to be necessary to finger in a different spot in order to hit a note.
