Are you a left handed violinist? Check out these tips
Are you a left handed violinist? Check out these tips A left-handed violin is the mirror image of a standard violin. It is a reflection, not an opposite. You can’t turn a standard violin into a left-handed one by simply putting the strings on in reverse. Violins are crafted very specifically. Inside the body, a bass bar (a wooden slat) runs the length of the strings, under the right leg of the bridge (in a left-handed violin). Likewise the soundpost is situated underneath the left side. The ‘reverse’ location of the strings requires that the peg holes are crafted suitably as well.
Interested in learning to play the violin, but wonder if being left-handed will be an asset or a liability? You’re not alone.
