50 Guitars and 50 Stories from Inlay Artist Grit Laskin
1/4"-diameter x 16", sufficient for seven 4/4-size soundposts.
After hearing about this being added to violins I tried it with my guitar. I placed it roughly in the same area like how it would inside of a violin and it dramatically made a difference between the highs and lows of my instrument’s tone and volume. Worth a try!
Good material-no defects. The quibble is the description says 16". The piece I got was about 14 inches long. Just sayin'.
I have purchased sound post blanks from other vendors. They were always rough cut - that is you would have to spend time to sand them down to a proper diameter. Stewmac's sound posts come finished in a diameter appropriate for most fiddles. Very fine grade, sound great!
It's what you need to be sure you will get the best sound possible without any hassle.
An actual spruce sound post!
But it's the RIGHT STICK!! I've tried "home center" hardwood dowels.......NO GOOD! I didn't think that a "bad sound post" could suck the tone out of a fiddle....but it will. Give the spruce a try!
Despite feeling like a sucker for buying a dowel at premium cost, I used this stock in my recent fiddle build, and the instrument sounds lovely and really projects. I'm sure the spruce adds to the sound. The dowel was straight and free of defects. Quality stock.
