    I might try that. My fat fingers do not allow keeping finger down and play the next finger down on half step - How far could i go above 330 ?

    have a violin lob at 362 scale length at notch 329 - it has a lot of after length and still has tailpiece cord long from the button .this is making the tailpiece very flexible .What does this do to performance and playability.? Where can one get an extra long tailpiece if that would help
  8. the neck scroll is walnut the fingerboard is purple heart back is one piece maple finish is a simple shellac -- i kept it a little on the thick side so weight is above average also approx 4mm longer LOB not by design though
  9. I am just a music listener - tone sounds even to me . It is truly aVSO as my woodworking skill are not good but while building was trying to get the sound. it sounds very good to me. Christine form the town orchestra played it in our local church the entire service- gave me a thumbs up immediately after the first hymn . She was really giving it a good workout even in higher positions / the other girl that played it wanted to keep it for a week to play in a wedding . so perhaps it was beginners luck. a quiz for you all . how many asymmetric parts do you see in the violin I am attaching a photo thank you all for your input
  10. A violinist playing a violin I made / I just love the b note on your violin . any thoughts about acoustics of this violin
  11. well i guess i may try to learn as this violin is a basic student model--- cost me $35
  12. I have a violin that I found a crack with a magnifying glass while inspecting some gouges to see if they were cracks . I is only visible ( to my eyes ) when pressing the area between bridge and treble F hole . this reveals s very fine line of white wood. I cannot see with an inspection mirror inside violin . how does one get the crack open to glue with the top removed ??
  13. I am Attempting to make a 15 1/2 inch Viola . What would be a good rib height range to optimize the box volume ? this will be a generic pattern with middle of the road arching --- thanks much for your opinions --- herrjunk
  14. what adjustments & setup affect under the ear performance but not to the audience so much ?
