Peg Acoustical Tuning Page....
...Now that the violin is well tuned we can turn our attention to
the tuning pegs:
...When we tap the tuning peg inline with the axis from the outside/in; we want this tap tone to be the same as the back plate {198 HZ/ G below middle C on the piano).
...This will help with the brilliance of the tones played.
...... I want to express my thanks to Pierre Lieba for his work on tuning peg tap tuning and his encouragement that it is an important area to tap tune.
..If tap tone is too low, then remove material evenly from the both sides until it is 198 HZ
..If Tap tone is too high, then gently scrape; sand; or file; a little material from end to quickly lower the tap tone of the peg.
..Tap in this direction;
198 HZ is goal, same as back tap frequency.
