Excellent Product ... Very Fast Shipping!!!

By

I'm just a musician, Not a luthier. I love to maintain my own instruments as far as I can, before lending them to the local repairer. I would definitely say, Products sold here, are the best I've used. Great Metal and Build quality. Not forgetting very Fast shipping. Using the S-Shape setter, and Soundpost Gauge has made my work a lot simpler. Definitely recommend it to anyone I know.

Get Both Soundpost Setter Tools

I can't imagine trying to do this with only one or the other tool, I found in most cases you will need both. The scissors style will need to be reshaped similar to the s shape tool to maneuver in the f hole. Also practice on a violin that doesn't matter to develop a technique to properly place soundpost without damaging f hole area.

Ya gotta bend the sound post plier jaw in about a 45 degree but after that it's passable.

It sure makes setting the sound post a breeze.....I did "sharpen" the end just a tad. Thanks again StewMac!

Arrived in record time!

Exactly as described here on Stewmac.com

One small thing, not quite sharp enough for my taste! But that's easily sorted!

Already done a few soundpost setting jobs with my new tool! Worth every cent!

I couldn't get these to work very well at all, even bending the jaws to be perpendicular to the sound post didn't work.
