how to test :
changes the way your instrument reacts to vibrations. The position as well as the pressure both influence the damping result. The pressure controls the degree of damping, the position changes the tonal range which is more affected (low, mid or high register).
focus first on the position: if you place at approx. 1-2 mm distance from the marker, you will obtain a very bright and sonorous low register, but will loose energy in the high register.
On the other hand, if you place
at approx. 8-10 mm distance from the marker, you will experience a brilliant high register, but a smaller low register:
find the balance between this two extremes!
