  1. Thanks for the note, but I have retired for the moment. Got plenty of bows…
  2. Hey, All, Posting on behalf of a friend, who recently heard a viola piece by a modern Mongolian composer: “Concerto Piece for Viola” by G. Altankhuyag She is eagerly seeking the sheet music and I said I’d ask around. Any leads? (It doesn’t do much for me, I’m afraid, but then, I’m cello-centric, ha-ha.)
  3. Oh, the temptation, sadly I do not have 30 grand lying around, or even 20 grand, and even the worst Tubbs in the world is worth 20.
  4. Ich danke für ihr gute Gedanken
  5. Merci… See i also speak French, haha
  6. Laff laff laff… my kidnappers have lots of Carons.
  7. My finances are such that I can no longer be wasting money on good bows, or even bad bows. But I am still here and I still read and thank you everybody.
  8. Ich Bleibe hier oft noch, aber nicht wie früher. Es freut mich sehr, ihr gemutlicheit zu horen.
  9. I have no idea I just listed it because I wasn’t sure whether inside or outside was the current dominant method so I listed them both
  10. I get the feeling that these days everybody uses one particular kind of construction, possibly two. Outside or inside mold exclusively? I’m wondering if, when you were trained, did you learn all the types of constructions and perhaps build an example of each? just wondering.
  11. Would a German label have used the French word for “shop”?
  12. Ha! My friend worked with Ekland for a time and he has stories…among which is never buy from him a bow with an Albert Nürnberger stamp.
  13. What pattern is that? The cracks look clean, but there seem to be a lot of them.
  14. This is wondering pretty far a field, but I do agree, it is possible for a species to be too successful, and if we don’t manage ourselves as well as managing the world, it won’t be long before neither exists anymore. I wonder how many civilizations have gotten to where we are, and then allowed stupid decisions to destroy themselves. In the movie contact, Jodie Foster says that the one thing she would like to ask an alien race is how they got past their adolescence. I think the answer is pretty simple it’s just doing it that’s hard.
