How to make a rubbing

The Process

 To do the rubbing, you'll need a piece of regular printer paper. Please DO NOT use tracing paper. Standard printer/copier paper is how my process works to give you the best fit. (For the paper you can print off the order form from my web site. There is room on the right side of the form for this.)

Tape the paper to the top, or have a friend hold the paper still so the paper doesn't shift (very important not to have ghost images due to shifting). For older instruments with fragile finish, have a friend hold the paper. Using the side of a regular #2 pencil, (not the mechanical kind - you need the wide lead to get good results) rub back and forth across the edge of the hole. You will see the side to side scribbles and a slightly darker line start to appear where the edge of the pencil bumps against the edge of the hole.

 As you do this all the way around, you will a thin outline of the hole appear under the scribbles. You may have to try rubbing from a different angle to get the top and bottom curls to show. Try to make sure the line is complete, especially on the rounded ends where the top and bottom of the f-hole curl around. If you end up with a dark wide line, try again. I have to see the edge of the hole. Also, be sure there are not two lines where the paper has shifted. It's OK to fold the paper in half or thirds for mailing, but not more than that.

 Here is a sample image of what the rubbing should look like.
