    Tuning down a soprano

    I've tuned tenors down to B and Bb with nice results, as apparently that's where they resonate best, according to many. However, I never tried it on a soprano, until today, by accident. Yesterday,...

    Agree on the nut width, that's why I sold my cedar/acacia version. If they offered those models with wider nut and string spacing, I'd probably own a couple of them, the tone was very fine.

    Thanks Joseph. Yes, these are seldom seen for sale here in the US, and I regretted letting it go, as I find it very easy to play, for a small soprano.

    Never met a Loprinzi I didn't like, but have played some Ponos that were muted & uninspiring. I know, they might open up, I'm just impatient.
