I know the position of the post effects the tone, volume, and mannerism's of URB's, but is there one rule of thumb on the preload or clearance of the soundpost between top& back? When you consider all the string choices, and other variables, it seems there could be a hot setup for instance if you were switching to a lower tension string, you may need a longer post, or new location even. Has anyone spent the time to find if there could be some science to this. Boog
