The long-term goal of this study is to investigate the differences that can be perceived in the “feel” of a violin across a certain range of instruments. As a first step, we compare the vibration levels in violin necks and the violinists' sensitivity to vibration in their left hand. Absolute vibrotactile thresholds were measured on violinists holding an isolated vibrating violin neck, to mimic normal playing conditions (in particular the pressure and the position of the hand on the neck).
