I just got a wolf Forte secondo. I see the obvious adjustments and even just using those it's already much better than the Resonans I was using before. I've seen that it can be bent in a variety of ways but I'm not sure exactly what to look for.

If people have tips on the subtleties of adjustment they would be much appreciated. 

Thank you in advance,

Jay

@jay bear I adjusted mine by throwing it into my drawer. I gave up.

Seriously, I saw all the adjustments you could make in videos, but it just was not working. I hope you get some real specific answers here. Mine would be much better on a violin and not in the drawer.

Have you seen this video?

I have seen that video a number of times and it looks perfect, but, we couldn’t get my Wolf Forte Secundo to do that. We have problems with the goofy underside adjustment things. I can’t remember exactly. We gave it a shot a number of times after watching this video, but could not get it to do what he did. I think that we went to another website where he had more instruction, if I remember correctly. It was too long ago. I might get mine out again for a try. I would like to put it onto one of my other violins. The FOM I use on my good violin has issues with my cheaper violin. Don’t have to worry about those with my cello, but I love my violins.

If I find added info to what Fiddlerman just posted, will post it here for you, @jay bear.
