Master tuning tab
The job of a tuner is that of a problem-solver whose goal is to maximize the bar's resonance. We look for harmonic balance in each bar. From a player's perspective, this means a large "sweet spot" in the bar. The bigger the sweet spot, the better balanced its structural harmonics. By better balancing the harmonics in the bar, we increase the sweet spot on the bar—this also increases the resonance of the bar.
Tuning bars is a little like wine making. Even if a wine maker uses the highest quality grapes, this does not guarantee that they will make the best wine. In fact, it is not uncommon to make vinegar from the best grapes! The same is true for rosewood. To create excellent sound requires a happy marriage between high quality rosewood and tuning mastery.
