  1. Thanks. I’ll continue with this model, I think it’s the best viola I have made for the sound.
  2. Beautiful anniversary for the Mirecourt School. some of the best bow makers, all of them student of Bernard Ouchard in the 70’s Stéphane Muller Sylvie Masson Gilles Duhaut Jean Pascal Nehr Christophe Schaeffer Stéphane Tomachot Eric Grandchamp [URL=https://www.casimages.com/i/210705122801590407.jpg.html][IMG]https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2021/07/06/210705122801590407.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  3. And my usual CA Testore model , varnishing too.
  4. Looks very different, the original have a poplar back, and I chose to use maple.
  5. I agree completely. i build my instruments like a drum. Rigid belt, holding the strings tension to have the membrane free.
  6. Created in 1970 by two of my masters, Étienne Vatelot , Jean Schmitt and Jean Bauer. https://www.50ansenl.com/
  7. I think it’s as simple as this people thought :if we make a bigger violin, the sound will be bigger.
  8. It’s the idea, reinforce the places where stress is for have thinner membrane where is less stress. the final result for weight is the same than my normal instruments
  9. Only the first half of the 19 century in Mirecourt
  10. Amsterdam 1888 http://biebkriebels.blogspot.com/2016/02/victoria-hotel.html?m=1
