String Instrument Setups by : Chuck Traeger


String musicians; know only this: everything is vibrating. The movement of the spheres? A guru's cryptic musing? Hypersensitivity to plate tectonics? Not quite.

Scarcely a month had elapsed since the death of his beloved wife; June; to whom he was married for over sixty blissful years. Albeit with a heavy heart; we at Hal Leonard Books are proud to present this remarkable man's parting gift to generations of current and future musicians.

String Instrument Setups is the culmination of forty-five years of acoustic research involving Trager's old standby; the double bass; and; in turn; any string instrument with a moveable bridge and a moveable tailpiece; or one that can be made moveable. Armed with th
