I hope the above explanation and photo help.

As far as your video goes, I really enjoyed it. I am not a video critique, but, I really enjoyed the video and your playing.

@joyfulmom - just a few suggestions regarding the buzzing on open strings.... (this is not necessarily a complete list !)  Also, most of the possible reasons I mention are often due to the fact the string is less dampened (and there is/can be more intense vibrations throughout the instrument) when played on open strings (stopped on the nut as distinct from the finger) - Although, I have to say the instrument sounds real nice in general and I'd be surprised if it is anything serious. Tracking it down can be a nuisance though 🙂

* Possible end of string in peg-box protruding too far through the peg hole and contacting peg box

* Possible mechanical looseness in some part of the fine tuner/s, or a problem in the way it grips the string ball or loop end

* Possible vibration of the tailpiece coming in contact with something - for instance chin-rest, or indeed within the tailpiece tail-gut tensioners/adjusters

* Possible groove depth on nut and or bridge

* More serious internal issues - but I rather suspect you'd be aware of that already

Somewhat embarrassingly, I myself spent a morning trying to uncover the source of a buzzing noise which was occurring almost always on open strings, and especially the G and D..... I was playing without a shoulder rest, and it finally turned out that it was the back-plate vibrating against a metal stud-fastening on the shirt I was wearing....  It took a while to live that one down I might add....  Really facepalm

I did not notice any buzzing. Could it be just the instrument being so close to you and you hear pretty much everything? Really heard no buzzing.

@BillyG beware of metal buttons… I'm extra-careful now that I damaged my varnish (likely more because of sweat than of buttons, but could be both).

I didn't spot the buzzing either but maybe I should listen with the volume up, or with headphones…

I did notice your slides are unique in this to me.   At least they are different and it put your touch on this tune.  The first I noticed was around or just before :29 a couple around :33 one around 1:29 and 1:34 for example.  Not distracting or anything..They sound great.  Just different sounding to me.  Good stuff.

I hear the sound that you are referring to but I don't see look at it as such a negative thing. Some buzzing sounds are pleasant. We have instruments from time to time that have horrible buzzing sounds that we are not able to deal with.

Buzzing sounds come from an incredible variety of sources. Once we found that a soundpost had a hairline crack that was not visible until we took it out and when we put in a new one, the buzzing was gone.

Old violins/recordings, have that sound and it's kind of pleasant. Also, some strings are notorious for having that old violin/buzzing sound. For example Larsen. They are great strings but not as pure sounding as other strings that are of worse quality.

That being said, the sound from your equipment is very nice.

@Mark @Mimi Aysha Thank you!! for your good comments 🙂

@Fiddlerman If it is not negative, it is great. I also don't like Larsen. I usually use dominant with pirastro gold E string. That combination is my best favorite.
