10 setups that will make instruments louder, better, and easier to play. This book is the culmination of forty-five years of acoustic research involving Traeger’s old standby, the double bass, and in turn, any string instrument with a moveable bridge and moveable tailpiece. Opening his first shop in 1969 in NYC after playing as a professional bassist and being frustrated with repair shops as a client his reputation for setup work soon preceded him. After retiring from performing on his 70th birthday he devoted his time to documenting all he had learned about his craft for the next two decades. 138 pages.
