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 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.
