..This is your TAP TONE Scale... at your fingertips
.
..These are the Tap Tone values that are used to fine tune the various parts of the Violin.
..I recommend that these values be used carefully to achieve the instrument's potential.
 ..This wood property is generated by a tap with the second knuckle of the middle finger or by any spruce or similar wood tapping tool. Let your tapper tool bounce off the surface you are adjusting, in order to get a 'clean' sound. (see 'useful tools' section.)
..Your goal is listen for the lowest part of the Tap Sound (ignore the high overtones).
..These recordings are made with my latest Tap Tone Wood Reference Tool at my violin shop in Salem, Oregon, USA October, 2017 A.D.
