  1. Where does the information come from it could be a Giuseppe Fiorini? Never heard of a Rieger-Fiorini collaboration.
  2. Please show a photo of the complete knife.
  3. I think with new Instruments it depends with the color of the varnish and choice of pegs. On brighter colors with Boxwood fittings i prefer to varnish the Pegbox in the same as the whole Instrument. Furthermore a question of a personal taste .
  4. A quick cell phone shot during varnishing.
  5. Thank you for your nice words. So I will posting allways from my work.
  6. The Winner Violins the past three VSA competitions were all strong antiqued.
  7. There are some instruments they get into the second round with 0-1-1. But in the score-sheet you find some where exact the „0“ judge give highest points then in the second round for the same Instrument. This is quite a bid strange to me.
  8. Attached is the score for the Violin. Two of three workmanship-judges were in the opinion it is not for the second round where the Instruments get closer look and points. Just a quick view.... Good bye.
  9. Just got it by email. The VSA on Instagram is great include a short Videoclip with the Violin- Racecar by David Burgess.
  10. Yes I did. Attached the workmanship points i received at the VSA For tone it is a bid a lotterygame to ship it oversea in full set-up.
  11. I work actual on no. 139. I know the owner of 133 of them. Count since 1996 wich does mean about 10 Instruments per year. Never win any award but 2 year order list.
  12. I just checked mailbox, but last msg is 2 years ago. Nothing new.
  13. When my violin does not survive the first round at VSA
  14. The site by Sergei Muratov "The Art of the Violindesign" have some useful to print out. http://samlib.ru/m/muratow_s_w/violin_design.shtml As well the classical book by Simone F. Sacconi "The Secret of Stradivari".
  15. How does handle judges from making competitions when they see carbon soundposts like from "Hamberger" or "Anima Nova"? Mainly as we talk about VSA competition. Refuse because using a non-traditional material? If allowed how they would give points as I see Soundpost is a part of set-up judging?
