Violin Scroll acoustical tuning (adjustment)...

To lower the tap tone of the scroll, alternatively the throat could be made deeper. Do this in tiny steps and measure so you do not overdue!
..To raise the tap tone of the scroll; narrow the sides, throughout the scroll, or alternately:
..Tap tone taps in the center and on both sides, should all match the 198 HZ goal. The center tap will average the two outer taps. Adjust the side that is farthest off goal first, and then the other side until they match at 198 HZ.
...Carry this tuning all around the scroll shapes.
...I imagine that getting this part of the neck structure to work properly with the rest of the neck and instrument, will make a notable imporvement in the playing characteristics of your instrument.
