Excellent Product ... Very Fast Shipping!!!

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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.


Essential Tools!

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