  1. Just acquire this new baby last month: No label inside.. , about 200 yrs old. On the top of the back (closed to the neck) was envraved "Mittenwald" " A K " Once piece back. My previous lover was a Strad copy made in Germany, about 50 years old.
  2. I really like this story, specially about " He smiled and said, "I do not know how to make a better one"". That's really touching.
  3. The "sound beautiful" one. I just trade in my beautiful-look, not-that-pretty-sound violin for a not-so-pretty-look but beautiful-sound violin. And I love it. Though I truly hope it can looks better, I never regrate to trade in the pretty-looking one for this pretty-sound one. With this one, I truly enjoy it when I play it, specially with my eyes closed!
  4. A decent violin does bring me a lot more joy. Consider the cost of rehair, repair, and that I can get a very good century old violin in very reasonable price, I think I will trade in. Personally I do think old violin is better... I like their sound..
  5. That's also why I still keep a little hope that this may be true. Also the seller mentioned something like "pencle written" about the year made.
  6. Hi! Michael and Elain, thanks for your reply. So, if I understand it correctly, whenever I see the word "faciebat" that means a copy.. am I right?
  7. http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?V...&item=401145146 It looks old enough.. but to my knowledge, Gasparo's live ends on 1609, but here it says made on 1637.. What do you think?
  8. Often see this word on the vioin labels but can't find it in internet Italian dictionary. Does any one know what does "faciebat", such as "Cremoninfis faciebat" mean? Thanks!
