Now that you have read or “skimmed” the science and your head is spinning! Let’s talk about what I do when I work on a Wolf-y cello.
There is probably not a singularly more common nor perplexing problem than a “wolf on my cello”. I work with various cellos and cellists on their “wolves” almost every week. There are thousands of wolves I have tried to tame!
There are a ton of myths, legends and misconceptions about wolfs. In this blog, let’s talk science. While we want the facts, we don’t want them to get in the way of the “truth”. Later I’ll talk about the realities and how wolves operate in the real world.
Here are some excerpts of articles I have found on the web and in string articles.
Our on staff "Cello Encyclopedia," Jen manages The Cello Whisperer blog. Boasting over 40 years of cello playing and over 20 years of assisting cellists here at The Loft, she has a lot of wisdom to share. See more on Jen below!
Jen has worked at The Loft Violin Shop for many moons. Her job is to make sure everyone at the shop has the tools and equipment they need to keep The Loft Violin Shop great. As a cellist, Jen spends some of her time speaking at cello camp, adjusting wolfs, and optimizing sound production on many customers' cellos. Jen works with the school programs around Central Ohio to recruit new students, maintain their instrument fleet, as well as purchase replacement instrument. Jen works with many suppliers on a regular basis to keep The Loft Violin Shop's inventory current and available. To relax, Jen teaches cello lessons in the evenings and enjoys spending time with her boys, flower gardens, chicken, and other pets.
