This is the same tune that I posted last time (Maid of Amsterdam) but this time I've moved the sound post a bit. I 'think' that there has been an improvement in the sound of the viola. I've posted both recordings in this post so that an easy comparison can be made.

And I'm beginning to think that I'm not totally impressed with the new Prelude strings. And if the manufacturer gives you things that they think that you may need to 'fix' them, I don't feel that they are really confident in them themselves.

The environment and all are the same for both recordings

First recording

With sound post repositioned

yes, sounds better, has more of a ring to it now

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

Experiment with bow speed vs pressure.
