  1. hoever the bounds and where the ribs attached to the back ar e pretty well execute.. the top seems to be removed and poorly glued back
  2. thanks for the reply... as far I could measure.. the ribs are so far ok, and with blocks... just the top is a bit longer and wider around the C bound... the purflings looks same style I agree as Martin mentioned, I was thinking probably same maker but from different violins so is this a home made amateur violin or could we tell from which part of the world its from? Thanks
  3. additional pix, the c bounds of the top is just so much larger than the back...
  4. I see I see.... how come no others willing to reply =.=~
  5. I guess and bet this is a composite violin, but hte seller said its not, how ever the top and back doesnt match up, top has a c bound of 8.9cm, back is 8.6 but out of curiosity, I am curious about whats the possibly origin of the back and top Thanks!
  6. hows the review of his violins I am curious? I happen to have one of his violins.. Thanks

    Violin ID?

    theres some spots here and there showing some traces of some old varnishs which was not fully removed... what about the scroll? do you think its taken from another violin?

    Violin ID?

    What about another violin? Always been wondering about this one I think its revarnished composite violin the head probably from another violin and poorly jointed the arch is pretty flat with a fake Natale Carletti label the LOB is about 358mm looking for ideas if this is a worthy project.. thanks

    Violin ID?

    yes its made of outside mould without but any label as for the antiquing, if you could see it in person, they are actual dirts and dents on the varnish and is removable if I would like to and another luthier here has confirmed that as for the photo, I think it look better in person than on photo IMO hahaha Thanks for the input!

    Violin ID?

    thx for the compliments on the work bench haha I will pass it on to my friend, its actually my friend's workshop here in Taiwan, he does pretty good works ! I would highly recommend him to whom ever is visiting Taiwan with a handicapped fiddle lol so I guess this is a germanic violin after all!

    Violin ID?

    Hi, thanks for the replies guys.. actually it sounds pretty good in compared with alot of violins I have played theres no trace of any label ever glued to it and actually the back pins are fake, its built using outside mould unlike the old masters.. and the antiquing is actually real, not fakes let me add more photos here

    Violin ID?

    any thoughts? I think it could be English back is around 359mm thanks in advance for any inputs!
  19. LOl thats one scary corner!
  20. I place my bet on its a german too, but its one of the better made ones. one nice violin you got there~
  21. no hard feelings but looks like just like another ebay fiddle to me, but among the 2 I will take the Wm. H. Vietor made in Reelsville, Indiana
  22. Yuen I've seen similar techniques using sewing threads on some old violins before..
  23. nonado, for this it would be better if you have a heavier forged setter like michael has, it is more steady and you can feel it better than other cheaper lighter ones
  24. yes the turning of the post doesn inprove sound .. thats what my luthier uses and tells me you have to turn it to fine fit it at the last
  25. quote: Originally posted by: SakamotoRyoma Hello. Whenever I bring my violin to shop for setting, they tell me to change bridge and soundpost. But, someone tells me it's ok, . because thats how shops earn money they should be able to at least provide proof and have solid reason to convice why do you have to change the bridge and post
