  1. Or anybody tried ever this way? Just pressure some sec. with your thumps. It works when Bar fitted perfect and glue is in the right consistency. (Just the Video doesn´t work)
  2. Yes I tried. They are great too. The a-string is waved too like the "e" like with Amber-Set.
  3. Can only speak from my new Violins. I tried Rondo, but still Warchal Amber is on top.
  4. If we compare the arching contours between Sacconi (The secret of Stradivari) and Sergei Muratov (The Art of Violindesign), it is noticeable that with Muratov the contours of Violin, Viola and Cello increases faster from the edge than with Sacconi, where by both occupy almost the same height in the middle. On both, Top and Back. What is preferred? Advantages and disadvantages? http://zhurnal.lib.ru/m/muratow_s_w/violin_design.shtml
  5. Like here. By "Hausberger" Also for Cellos. Holding only by Endpin and Pegs.
  6. Some weeks ago it looks good to run Mondomusica in Cremona. But now the stuff changed their mind to cancel it finally.
  7. I cancel my Booth some weeks ago as many regular exhibitors did. I think this year we see more a local show with much lesser international exhibitors and visitors. But I will go for a day or two.
  8. The exhibition Mondomusica is confirmed from 25th-27th of September in Cremona as planned. Who will go?
  9. Was a pleasure for me too. Such a nice and funny time we had at the Via Mercatello outside with Wine and Food. Hope this come again. Happy Eastern to all! Michael: Say hi to your wife, and when all is over and the time allow, please come over to us. We are just a jump away.
  10. Thank you so much. I was waiting for this a long time
  11. A year without Cremona for me.....impossible.
  12. Not only VSA! I guess no Mondomusica in Cremona and China Music in Shanghai as well. I could be wrong but this all has also a strong influence in peoples mind even if all goes down quick. Many would be still worry to travel larger distance. What if I suddenly fell ill of Covid-19 in foreign countrys? (Yes anything can happen). And people will think twice now for what they spend money. The whole Violinbusiness will get hammered this year and probably the next as well. And as long as there is no vaccine for everyone around the world, our lives and actions will be limited.
  13. I have contact to some makers in Cremona. So far i know nobody of them is infected right now. Happy are those who have their workshop at home. Some packed tools and materials in the last day before lockdown and work from their home. Others are very worry, sitting at home and can do nothing. Of course their are no dealers and customers in the city. Business seems to be down complete.
  14. I use Canon 24-105 lens too for taking photos of my instruments together with 4 Studioflashlights. But in my experience i find big Umbrellas better as Softboxes.
  15. Very fine Instruments. Worked with Stefan-Peter Greiner. https://www.paschviolins.com/kopie-von-home
  16. Yes I do tape tones on Cellos.
  17. Sorry for my late answer. Well i don´t know where to find, but you can contact him. He works with his daughter Adele above the Lago Maggiore. (include the amazing view over the Lake. http://www.associazioneali.it/en/socien/sbernini-luca-65.html
  18. Where does the information come from it could be a Giuseppe Fiorini? Never heard of a Rieger-Fiorini collaboration.
  19. Please show a photo of the complete knife.
  20. 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 .
