  1. I would really like to posting some nice pics. of the outside of my shop window ......if there are any window :-)
  2. I have ordering some tonewoods in Europe , It had been more than a month now , still waiting for it . Usually it takes about 2 weeks to here . Anyone have similar trouble too ?
  3. Does the gold medal winner's violin & viola has antiquing or not ?
  4. Try karin rost. Their wood purflings are excellent ! easy to bent , hard to unglue . of course , the most important things , it looks good !
  5. Here is the source I know of red willow block and linings , from Cremona : Red willow
  6. In short , that mean the soundpost was not fitted properly . You could tell where the post has really contact the top or back , by turning it with the setter . An unfitted soundpost could affecting in many way . One thing I've notice if the post was not in fully contact to the back . The bass and the power would suffering a lot .
  7. Shanghai is not in the southern China and not too humid !
  8. Thanks Chris , that's great ! Could you film more on the Il Cannone in more angles ? Such as from higher and lower angles ,less straight on it .
  9. Do you meant playing everything sound like a Shostakovich violin concerto , even if it's Beethoven violin concerto on the score ? That's definitely needs an acquired taste .
  10. My violin have stung on the new Peter Infeld for a week . it's really impressive !!!! My set are P101PT , with Platinum plated E string and silver D. They almost sound fabulous instantly after put on . It's quite hard to describe the "sound " of this string . Because it's so versatile .There are no other synthetic strings before have it's full spectrum of tone colors. That allow you to modulating the tone in great deal . The new Platinum E was so good , it's warm , powerful , clear and elegance . Just like what they say on their advertisement . The softer touch under finger of this strings , much like playing on gut strings , which I love to playing on it very much . $100 for a set of strings perhaps sound a bit expensive . But for what the sound improvement it bring on my violin , I think it's well worth it .
  11. Don't hesitate to try a set of it , to see if you and your viola like it . In my opinions , it's one of the best Viola Strings out there .
  12. You have a greater tolerance limits than I have !! :-)
  13. An low angle bevel up plane work best on end grain . For curly maple , higher angles seems work better !
  14. Yes , you're right ! but at the same time , this is also one of the advantage of wooden planes . You could re-shape it easily !
  15. I have post some Picture on an old post Bending iron- is this one good ? My unit is 220 V too !

    Thanks Dwight ! I'm quite pleased with it's sound too ! It's sound pretty much like a very late Del Gesu . Probably couldn't got the highest scores on a sound tests . But its sound "right " !!
  17. That's what electronic 'music' instruments are for .
