  1. I have a violin wqith a Jacobus Stainer label inside. Iim pretty certain that it is not an origianl, but who knows. If there is someone out there that can give me a clue as how or who to contact abouty this I would appreciate it.ThanksMel
  2. I played violin throughout grade & high school, always on rental instruments. Here it is about 12 years later, and my father has picked up a old, dusty violin at a rummage sale (I was not present.) Before I take it to hopefully be restrung, or see what other repairs it may need, I need to clean it & the case. I heard once putting mothballs inside the case for a few days helps, even when there are no visible insects. Is this true? Any other advice on cleaning it up properly? Thank you!
  3. To Mike and Ann - my thanks. It's good to know your thoughts and especially important to know that you like to hear something more. I won't go on - but if you do have a chance to hear Sherry Kloss, please go. I'd love to know what you think.
