  1. Curious of your feeling after to try it! You made it with the V profile? around 3.7mm at the gluing point under the bridge?
  2. Thanks Augustin Hadelich.|01||4eb6ef234f7b4c4b779b08d7f8f5e3f6|84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa|1|0|637251607279052896&sdata=tj%2FGbth3fXLfjjfRUenWJ1pJ3AKiBynVGv2WV0RlAe4%3D&reserved=0
  3. Violon de Andrea Amati, vers 1560, un des premiers violons connus ( celui ci s’appelle "Il Portoghese" car je l’ai découvert au Portugal il y a environ 25 ans) Il a été fait pour Charles IX, roi de France, fils de Catherine de Médicis, roi de la Saint Barthélemy, il est à l’origine de la tradition du muguet pour le premier Mai. Même si c’était une tradition celtique, en en offrant aux dames de la Cour en 1561, il en a fixé l’usage.
  4. Lovely man and great cellist and musician!
  5. I would be very happy to be able to tune a piano this way!
  6. Two of my instruments, I didn’t build the piano, but with the quarantine.............. why not?
  7. I’m not sure that any of us is able to make a violin sounding like this one and with this response, set up with Eudoxa or Olive, but maybe I’m wrong.
  8. I’m wondering if the superiority of classical instruments (Stradivari, Guarneri,Amati) was not more obvious 50 years ago. With the "modern strings (post Dominant) we have been able to bring open sound and clarity to modern violins, what was before the quality of many great instruments. Only good instruments was sounding well with Eudoxa or Oliv strings. What do you think? Modern strings can have levelled de difference of sound between Strads and modern violins?
