Hello, my violin is making a strange crackly static noise when I play any note on the D and G string. I think this thread has the same problem https://fiddlerman.com/forum/p.....d-problem/. I have cleaned the strings and bow, got new rosin, new strings, tried it with a different bow and I always clean the violin after I play it.  None of these has gotten  rid of the sound.  It is not my playing either because my teacher has played on it and gets the same sound.  There is one thing I have noticed though, the sound post is ever so slightly squint.  I don't know if this is causing the sound or not. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated for fixing this background noise.

Crackly and static sound like no vibration. Typically happens when one plays too close to the bridge without adequate pressure. It could also be that the post is too tight.
