      Forum Update *UPDATED*   12/30/16

      If you are a Maestronet member, you will likely have noticed a major upgrade to our forum software. This new software improves on a number of areas - one of the biggest is mobile support. This new format is responsive, and so will work nicely on browsers of all sizes. Other improvements will be forthcoming shortly, including SSL for the entire site. A few notes that will help you with the new setup: Your username for logging in is now either your screen name, or your email address - either will work. Your old username will no longer work. When typing a message, the system will periodically auto-save your content as you type. If you lose connection, or return at another time, simply to back to the conversation or thread, hit the Reply button, and your saved content will be there ready for editing. There is a link at the top right of every page labelled "Unread Content" which will show you in a nice timeline view new content. The site can send notifications to your browser, but this can be turned off. Have a look around and check out some of the new features. If you notice anything off, post in News, or PM Jeff or Glenn and we will look into it. Happy New Year from the Maestronet Team.

Fingerboard scoop?

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone have an image showing proper violin fingerboard scoop, and maybe an explaination on how to acheive it? And has this been a fairly standard process over the cneturies?

This was a good recent thread on this subject:

Scoop

Yes, I read that thread, and it was quite informative, but I'd like to see an image of a fingerboard with the correct scoop, so I can get an idea in my mind of the actual shape. Having never done this before, I'm about to try and cut the scoop in a new fingerboard that is actually slightly convex on the top. It's a new board with a very flat bottom, so it is not warped. Seems it's hard to find fingerboards these days that are nicely shaped to begin with.

I am assuming from the thread you mentioned that the scoop should be centered about midway on the board, starting maybe 30mm out from the nut and maybe 50mm from the free end, about 1mm deep, and favor the bass side, but it's easiest for me to do the work if I can see what it should look like. Thanks for responding!
