  1. how about ernst last rose of the summer and paganini god save the king? they are pretty hard
  2. great playing! would sound better with a better microphone!
  3. This is the first time I'm posting my work. Just finished a repair on a violin. https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Uvy3Ust0TSxNRuZhjtoFog?feat=directlink https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Uvy3Ust0TSxNRuZhjtoFog?feat=directlink
  4. Ive played some of the violins on your list and I feel strongly that you should consider to try terry borman's violin
  5. I have played on it once, it's a very very bright sounding violin!
  6. Second that. Seems the be shill bidding going on.... a bit fishy
  7. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310334740488&clk_rvr_id=252389430836 Check out this auction sold by Seattle goodwill. Bow seems to be a voirin but without an original frog? Case seems to be from bein fushi's firm. Violin is very nice, but can't really tell from the pictures. bx
  8. most of the items went far above the estimated value. Either it means that the estimates were low, or the violin market has been going strong.
  9. I see that with all the varnish wear there isnt any dings on treble side c bout and corners. Possibly new?

    Violin Bridge

    thank you so much. I like the bridge because frankly, the name stamped on there is wicked!
  11. I have a bridge that I really like and would like to have another one made by him. I tried googling his name but it did not yield any results. Could anyone tell me where I can contact the maker? Thanks
  12. thank you so much guys!
  13. Is it me or the original certificate which was written in 1992 has same photos as the ebay listing? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230631074025&clk_rvr_id=239643093798#ht_1550wt_907
  14. I've recently purchased a fiddle. I would greatly appreciate it if fellow members can identify school or maker of the fiddle. many thanks
  15. I meant like buy the tortoise shell stock before it was banned.
  16. I was wondering if it is possible to use the tortoise shell that would be made into a bow frog and make a pendant out of it. I was thinking about what kind of gift to give to my girlfriend, and I thought it would be nice to convince a bow maker to sell me a piece of tortoise shell and give it to a goldsmith and turn it into a pendant. Is it possible? And would it be beautiful? Thank you
  17. I have this violin, when you look at the bassbar from the treble side of f hole, there are these words written. What does it mean? http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz165/bx2vio/DSC_0172.jpg link of the picture in case if you cant see it Thank you Bx
  18. Is this a kind of style that some makers pursue?
  19. I have a violin scroll with tool marks left on it. Would this be considered poor craftsmanship?
  20. So is it true about crash landing of alien spaceships there? Would be cool if you had alien violin makers working at your shop creating the most perfect violins!
