  1. Hi, Could anyone shed some light on this violin? Thanks
  2. I didn't bid on it but I did like the red color. So it is a relatively new violin?

  9. Again I'm just a violin play..student! But when reading the OP question an idea came to my mind: Imagine the 'fronton game' (I'm sorry I'm not sure how it's said in english) but essentialy you must hit an elastic rubber ball with a racket, the ball flies off till it reaches the fronton wall which bounces it back. The ball would act as the sound waves The racket (or the racket net) would act as the violin top. It is softer than the wall, imposes direction, stile, angle, etc., to the ball. The wall would act as the back of the violin. It is harder than the racket and ha
  10. Anyone knows the model name of that chinrest? I'm sorry I've found no more pictures of it on the net
  11. Just a newbie here but I won't make use of olive oil. It would become very dirty with time
  12. Completely agree. I posted the link seriously, I thought she (Kate) were very lucky there were a genealogy forum specially dedicated to the Mohr surname.
