  1. I must admit nothing in this sale is pulling at my heart strings. They need to hire me to come polish the bows a bit for photographs. I hate the look of tarnish. DLB
  2. I didn't have to do anything this last year, They just didn't charge me. DLB
  3. https://tarisio.com/auctions/auction/lot/?csid=2199289856&cpid=3683074048&filter_key= I wish someone would take a shot at an attribution or point of origin. It would be a lot to spend on "A Viola" It looks like it has had an active life but also like it may be time for it's 1,000,000,000 mile service appointment. DLB Sorry, I missed that the title of the video suggested Milan. Does it look cut down?
  4. I am not an expert on taxes. I have bought a bow from Tarisio London. I did not pay any VAT, there is no duty on used bows coming into the USA (Even really expensive ones) That was my experience, your mileage may vary DLB
  5. https://www.stewmac.com/benedetto/benedetto-palm-plane.html I really don't know anything but I thought these looked nice. DLB

DLB
  7. I guess my question is why it isn't in a regular Tarisio auction. The lift is probably part of it. DLB
  8. https://t2-auctions.com/auctions/lot/?csid=2199273472&cpid=3604037632 The certificate for this bow is from a group that I would consider very important, all three of them excellent makers and well known experts. Why is the bow being sold as a no name bow? It is quite heavy but I don't think that should matter. Seems rather odd anyway. DLB
  9. Fence pickets for privacy fences are often cedar. DLB
  10. I wonder given how much better cases are now if instruments will ever wear as much as the old ones. DLB

  12. One of my teachers at Interlochen knew Mr. Condax very well. He played his premier recital at Carnegie recital hall on a cello made by Condax. Louie attended With a sound post setter and various other set up tools in his inside coat pockets! I am very interested in photographic history and L.C. did really important early work on color processes. I even got to see one of the three color separation cameras needed for the process. There is a woodworker here in Texas that has made a few of his cello podium to good effect,

  14. I have commissioned a few instruments from different makers in the last little while. What I tell them is to finish it the way their artistic sense tells them to. I want them to make the instrument as beautiful as they can make it and to follow their own esthetic. I want them to do it the way they feel it. DLB
