Open the fixation screw
Place Woodify on the head-joint
Assemble the instrument
Fasten Woodify at the desired position
Press the ring softly against the tube while you fasten the screw
Place Woodify at approx. 2-8 mm distance from the marker on your head-joint (the marker is the circular line you use as a reference when tuning the instrument)
How to test Woodify
Woodify 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 Woodify at approx. 1-2 mm distance from the marker, you will obtain a very bright and sonorous low register but will lose energy in the high register.
On the other hand, if you place Woodify 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 these two extremes!
Degree of Damping
You can change the amount of damping of Woodify by fastening the screw more or less. Try out different degrees of fastening and hear out for the different sounds.
