  1. I really don't mean to sound insensitive, but there's no reason why things should be set up other than B. Unless someone really has super good evidence suggesting the efficacy of A, setup B has been sufficient for players who know how to use their pegs well. In my (players) opinion, getting a good fit is pretty much the end of the fitter's responsibility. Let the player learn and adjust.
  2. I heard a rumor that Burgess is the head of Gingrich's super PAC in MI...
  3. Thank you. Tell me, how often do people take a man of Asian descent that posts regularly seriously? Granted, a hammer is much...but in the posts where he gives some pretty nifty insight he is categorically ignored. If one is unable to observe this phenomenon in practice, I seriously doubt if they can see the distortion in perception. But anyway, this post is about Michael.
  4. First, I want to echo the praises of Michael. His willingness to share can be but indicative of his integrity as a maker and his brilliant benelovence as a human being. I'd like to offer my best wishes for years of continued work! May you produce your finest violins over the age of 80! Thank you for that above quote. There is a culture of an "in" and "out" group, where the "in" group maintains this holier-than-thou persona in which they'd have you believe that their hands are virgin of filth. Conversely, those in the "out" group are labeled as too tainted to make any real contribution on par with the "in" group.
  5. Campbell is in San Jose. It's the same Scott Cao.
  6. They might be purple and white. They're Eudoxas.
  7. You can see for yourself the list of top players who use Dominants. And you can also see how the "violin world specifically" generally doesn't use steel strings, except for the E: http://www.violinist.com/discussion/response.cfm?ID=6294
  8. The Hills. You can see the stamp in other pictures.
  9. The trick with Jargar is to get them in the FORTE tension (red), not the medium (blue). But I will concur, for the buck nothing beats Goldbrokat. My personal favorite is golden spiral solo, also worth a try!

    Experience, sadly one of the least appreciated forms of "basis" today. (Said tongue-in-cheek directed to no one on the board)

    Where are you getting your string thicknesses? They seem a little excessive to me.
  12. Here's a good clue. http://orgs.usd.edu/nmm/Violins/AmatiHenry...enterBoutLG.jpg
  13. In one clip the bow is brown with silver lapping. In the other the bow is green with darker lapping. It's pretty clear that he either changed bows or the stick is displaying characteristics of motion sickness
  14. While we're at it... A "paparazzo" is a gossip monger. "Paparazzi" are gossip mongers.
