While waiting for wood to stabilize, I stripped varnish of a violin made 2010. It was quite dark and ugly and I have planned to do this for some time.
It also need a little retuning and casein/lime glue size on the inside to make it more stable. The back is made of one piece lower dens wood (0,56 g/cm3).
Top M5 347, Back coupling frequency 304 Hz. For retuning this frequency you need to monitor B1+ (526 Hz), without setup, before opening the violin.
I'm going to raise B1+ a little. Humidity 38%
