SOURCE: bear polar recurve brace height

String length is 60 inches. The brace should be 7.5 to 8 inches. Listen for noise and feel for hand shock. Twist the string to add brace. Shoot for the sweet spot. When the bow becomes quiet and the vibration and hand shock is minimal, you have found the sweet spot. Measure your brace height at this point and write it down.

SOURCE: What's a Recurve bow?

Often made of more than one material, either laminated carbon or fiberglass, with the tips curving away from the archer -- a highly recommended bow for beginner archers, in addition it is also the exclusive bow of the Olympic Games

When released the bow makes a clacking noise like the string is slapping the limbs.


remove string and check limb pocket inserts and limbs for delamination or coming apart. You can buy string dampners if it is just string slap.

How to adjust truss rod on yamaha f335 guitar


Taken from http://www.learnguitarsetups.com


There are a few golden rules when adjusting your truss rod. First, only use the rod to keep your neck as straight as it needs to be...do not use it to adjust your action! Second, only use the proper tools. If you do not know what the proper tool is, check with the manufacturer. Truss rod nuts are easy to strip, and once they're stripped, they are expensive to fix! Finally, do not force anything; an eighth of a turn can make a drastic change. Remember, if the truss rod feels tight or doesn't seem to be doing anything, take it to a professional.

  1. Start by sitting with the guitar in the playing position.
  2. Tune it to pitch if it is not already.
  3. Capo the first fret. If you do not own a capo, you can use your fretting hand.
  4. Next, fret the bass string with your picking hand up near where the neck joins the body. This is typically around the 14th fret, but it may be higher up with some electric guitars. In our example, we'll be using the 20th fret.
  5. Use the string as a straightedge held against the neck which will either bow away, or against the string. This is how you determine the amount of relief in the neck. You can also use a steel ruler placed along the length of the neck, in the same manor.
  6. In our example, the approximate half way point between the 20th fret and the 1st, will be the 7th fret where we will observe the distance between the top of that fret and the bottom of the string (or ruler), as pictured. Notice the gap. Hint: Half way down the neck is often between the 7th-9th frets.
  7. If you have a gap between the top of the fret and the bottom of the string, you likely have a bowed neck. If there is no gap, it is likely either dead straight or back-bowed.

HOW MUCH TO ADJUSTThe bigger the gap, the more relief is in the neck. Normally, we want just a small amount of relief in the neck for optimal playing, about the same as the thickness of a business card or less.

If there is a gap, tighten the truss rod clockwise until you have something closer to what we're after. Slide a business card in between the top of fret and bottom of the string (or ruler). Make sure you are placing the card parallel with the string or ruler. If there is no gap, you may be either dead straight or back bowed, so you will need to loosen the truss rod counter-clockwise to get the results we are after. Hint: If the strings are buzzing in the first few frets and open strings, it is often a clear indication of a back bow.

Remember, do not force anything to get the results you are after. If it is hard to adjust or spins freely you may need professional assistance.

The final step in setting your relief is to test it out! If it feels better, you're done! But take note, straightening the neck may actually make your guitar play worse! Consequently, when the truss rod is tightened, the height of the strings are lowered, which can create string buzz if your guitar isn't setup properly to start. Likewise, it can make a poor fret condition more noticeable. So, if your guitar plays worse after adjusting the neck, it is either too straight for your playing style, or it is a sign that more work is needed. Thankfully, you can easily reverse the changes you've just made if required.

How does a bow work?


A bow is a flexible arc which shoots aerodynamic projectiles called arrows. Essentially, the bow is a form of spring powered by a string. As this string is drawn, energy is stored in the flexible limbs of the bow; the energy is transferred to the arrow when the string is released, projecting it much farther than a weapon could be thrown.

When the bow is pulled across the strings there is no sound just a quiet muffled noise?


These are noted for NOT being prroperly setup!

Check the following:

The bridge should be centered within the length of the "f" holes... usually there is a slight "v" in the middle of the "f" holes.

The Back (side toward the tailpiece) should be perfectely vertical relative to the top surface.

Look into the "f" hole on the treble side. The sound post should be about 1/4 inch toward the tailpiece from where the bridge is located. The post should be vertical between the top and bottom inside.

The rest depends on the quality of the strings and the bow. The bow needs to be rosined.

Luthiers often don't want to work on low end vilins as they can't charge much...

Use google to find stuff about setting up a violin. There is a mass amount if information on the web, and probably some help on you tube as well.
