It does happen, that you need to move it a touch occasionally, might want to check and make sure the soundpost is upright before you put full tension on your bridge...When they tip over while tuning or wherever it sounds like the whole world fell apart..lol Good video, we need a like button... Paul
Cool! Thank you!
When I got my violin, I tuned it up from scratch, but I didn't know about tilting the bridge back to prevent it from leaning forward. As a result, mine now has a tiny gap on G-string side. Can I tilt it back without first loosening the strings, or is there a risk of snapping anything?
And another thing: my bridge isn't perfectly lined up with the top as Denny was talking about. The left-side edges of both feet are slightly lifted off the body. I suspect this is because it's factory made... Can I do something about it, or should I get a new bridge, or just leave it as it is?
