Tonal Enhancement

Tonal Enhancement with the Patented Bass Bar

Every string instrument has a bass bar, the wood piece inside that enhances the quality of sound and impacts the volume. Dr. Zaret has developed a new design for the bass bar which allows precise and effective adjustment to achieve the most desirable qualities of sound in all instruments.

  • Violins – big, brilliant, deep, rich tone
  • Violas – deep warm tone, excellent power, easy response
  • Cellos – deeper sound on lower strings, more sizzle and power
  • Basses – deep, booming sound with great power and response

“I tried your violin with your Bass Bar invention and it has an extraordinarily vibrant sound.” ~ Isaac Stern, internationally renowned violin soloist, recording artist and patron of the music world.
