  1. It’s been a long process but it’s finally restored! Hope you enjoy seeing the results. We were thinking Meisel family from around 1800. It’s a very beautiful and charming violin! The tone is very full, warm, and balanced!
  2. From what I heard, it was for sale the past 10 years with no buyers and most of the original varnish is not there either. I also heard the tone is good but not as amazing as others. Toscha Seidel played it though and I guess that’s quite an endorsement and piece of history.
  3. Some of you remember me posting pictures of this old violin that’s in very poor condition. Evgeny Arnautov has been working on it for me the past few months. It has a long way to go, but it’s getting there. I’ll post more updates as they come.
  4. Evgeny Arnautov is making the restoration. I highly recommend him! Im amazed!
  5. Update… It has long ways to go but it’s getting there!☺️
  6. Hello, I have this nice bow stamped H.R. Pfrezschner and it has some gorgeous wood, but not sure if its brazilwood or pernambuco… Its also stamped Germany and has some number stamps as well. Thanks for any thoughts. It weights 60.5 grams.
  7. Bois d’Harmonie tailpieces are the very best. I always hear a big improvement in overall response of the instrument. They are expensive, but you get what you pay for. They are carefully made and light too. Whittner are very popular and cheap, but compared to a Harmonie one, no comparison IMO.
  8. I was looking for a nice Bois d’Harmonie pernambuco tailpiece for a nice Italian violin I have but have been unable to obtain one without fine tuners. I found a beautiful one, but it has four tuners and not sure why they make them this way. The weight is 13.9 grams, so quite light. I notice the strings don't touch the bar on the tailpiece and if this is normal or how to remedy this… Wouldnt that affect the tone? If anyone has experience with these beautiful tailpieces and can offer any insight or tips, that would be great!
  9. Its not repaired yet. Tape just holding it on for time being lol Well in that case, maybe thats correct.
