  1. Well gosh guys, sorry I put in my two cents. Of interest, from the exact same place. Notice the TIM on the button. The link to drop in from "sold" doesn't seem to be working.. https://www.jrjuddviolins.com/product/tim-geigen-1923/
  2. Yes, a lot of times (at least here) you see this model stamped and labeled as “TIM Geigen.”

  9. If she has room in her schedule, you can't do much better than Eliane Leblanc.
  10. The trade has thankfully gotten far more conservative.
  11. HA... one of my clients did this, and sent it to me and we used it for one of the early episodes of the Omo podcast. They are indeed dustbin scrolls. A violist, incase anyone is interested.

  15. My understanding from whom we got that pic from was that everything was á la carte.
