  1. Selling an expensive violin

    Or an amusing five pages hoax thread!
  2. Peg reamers- Spiral or Straight Fluted?

    I prefer to use the straight one, it gives me more control on my job.
  3. Cello tailpieces and wolves

    Thank you guys for all the tips. I will definitely try the magnets.
  4. Cello tailpieces and wolves

    BTW, what I was asking in the first post: changing the carbon tailpiece to a rosewood one would help with the wolf? (I ask about rosewood because I have one in the drawer, but I would not mind to get a boxwood, jujube, or ebony one.
  5. Cello tailpieces and wolves

    Exactly, Frank, it happens to me the same. One weird thing I have found is that the wolf is less prominent when I put the French bridge instead of the Belgian one. Strange things come and go around the wolf tones.
  6. $25 ebay violin suggestions

    For 25 bucks the worst thing that can happen is that it end hanging in a wall.
  7. Cello tailpieces and wolves

    Afterlenght is already properly set. C string afterlenght was initially set to G, sound was delightful. Following Michael Darnton's advice I tuned the afterlenght to the wolf, that is F#. It improved but never gone.
  8. Cello tailpieces and wolves

    I wonder how the tailpiece in a cello can affect the wolf tones. I know a lighter tailpiece can improve brightness and resonance, but also can make a wolf worse. My cello has a composite tailpiece with built in fine tuners, it has a full, resonant bright tone, but also a nasty F# wolf. A lup-x wolf eliminator in the C string does tame the wolf, but does not get rid of it. What if I change the tailpiece for a rosewood one? Thank you for your tips in advance.
  9. Wolf Hunting! Yikes!

    I believe there is a slight mistake in the article regarding string afterlenght . It says: "...For example, on violin, the after length of the D string can be tuned to an A, for cello, the G string after length should be a C..." might be true for violins, but opposite for cellos. I tune te cellos afterlenght so the note for the C string is a G as a general rule of thumb. But when I find a cello with the usual F# wolf, tuning the afterlenght to that wolf note usually tames the wolf.
  10. Warchal Brilliant vs. Visoin Titanium Solo

    May I have your permission for not liking his playing? Cheers!
  11. Warchal Brilliant vs. Visoin Titanium Solo

    Only my point of view. As valid as yours.
  12. Warchal Brilliant vs. Visoin Titanium Solo

    The difference between some one who plays the notes and someone who plays the instrument.
  13. My old violin identifaction

    That seems so, but could be a fake one. It seems also that it has a wedge under the fingerboard. would like to see a picture of the button, seems to have a crown and a pin in the middle.
