Dusted her down. Cleaned up the pegs. And restrung.

I moved the sound post but its not right. Will have to play around with it

I suppose I'd better play something http://violaman.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif

Its been a while since I played it.

You know violas better than me. How, in your 'honest' opinion, is it sounding?

Its sounding good John. As Ive made my transition , the biggest thing to adjust is your bow pressure. It takes a little more down force (a little, dont get crazy) then it does the violin to start a note.
Look forward to hearing more !!

Bach : As the greatest expert and judge of harmony, he liked best to play the viola, with appropriate loudness and softness

@coolpinkone
Thanks Toni

No, going back to was not really a problem. In fact in some ways it's easier than the fiddle :)
