  1. Fiddle Case

    www.tkl.com the model number I was looking at is the 8344 in the symphony series. Lp
  2. Fiddle case

    Hello Steve, I thought you were doing mandolins now! I tried the Gator case and loved it. It was perfect for I needed but my fiddle would not fit. Lower bouts are 214mm. If the Gator is available for a slightly larger fiddle I would have one! The model I tried was a GV666? I purchased a Bobelock 1002 from Chris Quinn works like a charm. However the other night at a little jam another fiddler fell it love with it and just had to have it. Paid on the spot. So I'm looking again. The TKL cases look like a Bobelock without the cordura cover and they have similar padding. So Steve you doing anything with mandolins or just fiddles? BTW I like the the new site. Lp
  3. Fiddle Case

    Has anyone had any experience with the TKL cases?
  4. Fiddle case

    Has anyone used or using one of the TKL archtop cases? I'm interested in the # 8344. Looks like a decent case. If its as good as my mandoln case it should be built like a Sherman tank. Lp
  5. Shoulder Rest

    I've been using a KUN. Are there any out there that are more comfortable and do the job a little better? There are no shops in my area otherwise I'd go try a few. Thanks in advance. Lane

  7. Neck Angle of Guarnerius

    I should receive the fiddle monday or tuesday;I guess we will see then. Thanks Lp
  8. Neck Angle of Guarnerius

    Manfio. When I received this violin I thought the angle was a bit low. However right out of the box the tone and volume were much better than my TH Jr. The fellow that is cutting a new bridge and adjusting the soundpost noticed the low angle too. Although he has not commented on the tone he did say it was much easier to play after a new setup. I respect his observation as he is a very good fiddler and maker. Lp
  9. Neck Angle of Guarnerius

    Hello all. I have a guarnerius style fiddle. The angle of the neck is lower than strads I have had in the past. The Heberlein Guarnerius I used to own did not have as low a neck angle as this one. Do the Guarnerius style violins typically have lower neck angles and how low of an angle is too low?
  10. Folks at IVC are great to deal with. However another great place to purchase strings is www.juststrings.com . Strings for every kind of stringed instrument one can imagine. fast shipping and world class customer service.

  13. Goldflex Rosin

    Anyone currently using Goldflex? It has been recomended as the solution for a scratchy sounding bow. The bow hair is only a couple of months old. I notice the scratchy sound when the humidity is a bit low. Thanks in advance. Lp
  14. Recomend a rosin cake

    I have noticed a rather scratchy sound coming from my bow,especially when the humidity is low. I've been using Olive for a couple of years. Anyone care to venture forth with a rosin recomendation and anyone using the Goldflex? Thanks in advance. Lp
  15. SKB444 fiddle case

    Has anyone had any experience with this case? I've had a couple of SKB's I used for gigs and fiddlers conventions. Good sturdy general purpose cases. The 444 looks different and has a decent little storage compartment in the lower bouts section of the case. Under $70.00! All the best. Lp
