PostSubject: Beginner bloopers   Fri Feb 11, 2011 9:30 am

Just want to share my experiences and bloopers when I first started to learn playing the violin :D.

I actually bought a (bachandorff) violin about a week before I enrolled in classes kasi bigla nawala yun nainquire ko na sched hehe. For that one week hindi ko hinawakan yun violin ko kasi I don't want to develop a bad habit.

First thing I upgraded or added was 3 more fine tuner, ako na nagkabit nito kasi hirap dalhin yun violin kung saan saan at no stock yun place ng lessons ko. First thing I did I loosened the pegs so I can remove the bridge so I can install the fine tuners sa tailpiece. So far no problem, but when I put the bridge back and retune the violin ayan na blooper ko hehe. I did not notice the bridge was already leaning while I was tuning it so eventually *BLARGH!!* ... bagsak ang bridge ko with a big crash.

I was like NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Agad ko tinignan kung na sa pwesto pa ang soundpost. It was still there and seem to be still in the proper place .. but it left a dent on my violin .. no cracks but there is a visible dent.

There was also another thing I did not notice until I was wiping my violin after my practice session.. the fine tuners scratched a bit of the violin when I was intalling it

Kawawa violin ko, but I guess at least I learned something, so evertime I change strings, I place something soft in between my tailpiece and the violin so It won't scratch.

Hmm.. anu pa.. ah , I also tried to customize my own bridge with sand paper and crafting knife. I kept the original bridge and right now I have the one I customized installed, but I might try to remake another one, it may be a bit too low. I'll keep another blank as well in case I go to a luthier hehe. I just wanted something personalized on my violin kaya ako nagtyatyaga icustomize yun bridge although a luthier can do it a lot better.

I might bring it to a luthier someday for checkup (my violin is somewhat hissing, more noticable on certain bows) and setup (maybe some fittings upgrade). May sketch ba kayo papunta kay Mang Angel Gabute? hehe

He he he, ako nga noon eh, dinikitan ko ng superglue ung bridge sa mismong top plate ng violin, hinde nag warp o kumalas... nabali naman, at ng binakbak ko na ung bridge natangay na ung varnish sa violin.

You learn naman sa experience mo, kaya, magandang pag experimentuhan mo iyang violin mo, kaya nga sa "student entry" muna nag uumpisa ang halos lahat para hinde ganun kasakit pag nasira. :D

Hanggang ngayon nga eh, hinde ko pa rin napapa set up ung aking violin sa luthier[wala pang oras] sa ngayon ako pa rin ang nag aayos ng violin pagdating sa pegs, bridge at paglinis.

Pero wait ka lang, marami na dito ang nakapunta kay Mang Angel, at mabibigyan ka ng direksyon.

baka nga , pero nagbago na rin ako ng strings.. i think baka maluwag yun fine tuners. napapansin ko yun hissing sa G and D strings pag medyo mabilis yun pagbow.

hmmmm, paanong hissing ba? minsan pag masyadong mahigpit ang pagka pihit sa hair ng bow, magkakaroon ng hissing "sssshhhhh" sound or baka bago pa ung bow mo at hinde pa gaano flexible. Or baka kulang sa rosin... minsan pag sobra sa rosin nag hi hiss din ang pag bowing ko, kaya dapat tamang lagay lang.

Pag may loose na accessories or parts ng violin, may buzzing o rattle na tunog. or kailangan paayos ang finger board dahil hinde maganda ang pagkagawa, ang luthier ang mag aayos nito.

EDIT: Ako dati nilalagyan ko ng papel ung 'nut' para medyo umangat ang strings at hinde tumama sa finger board pag nag vibrate ito :D

Wala lang mega excited ako noong bumili na ako ng violin ko at sinubukan kp agad mag bow. Pahiya ako kasi I didn't know about the application of rosin. Reklamo pa ako nun. "Baket walang tunog?!" ><
