I suppose it's only helpful if you have the right tools right?
Anyway, I wouldn't have dared moving a sound-post when all I was was a player/performer. I've been trained and have moved and even cut so many now that I can almost do it in my sleep though it was very awkward the first times.
I HAD to do it. i dropped sound posts on both of my violins. one - when changed the tail-piece and in the other when it felt from the chair =) And, yes, i have a right tool - a regular one =)
Just a pic of my sound post tools
The first two from the right are the ones that Pierre showed in the video.
The third is a sound post retriever. Its used to retrieve that sound post that is rattling around inside your fiddle. Very handy
The forth is to measure how long that your sound post needs to be when making a new one. Its inserted into the body and expanded in the position that the sound post will be giving you the proper length... about
Am looking forward to a video on cutting / making a new post
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
