  2. I think a few centuries of instrumemnt making speak for themselves; but if you like, feel free to experiment and let us know what happens!

    I hope you have a pincher type sound post setter, because a stabber type won't penetrate that ebony!

    Sounds like a great mute to me. Do you live in an apartment with thin walls where volume is a problem?
  7. The American Kay plywood basses had hardwood (Birch?) sound posts. Some think these sounded better in those instruments than spruce posts.
