  1. Yep. I've seen two real CFLs and this one looks damn close from what I see in the pictures...
  2. A little bit off topic but why did clean French fiddles with Rampal certificates ended up at T2? Also the Pietro Landophi Lot 226 looks very intriguing to me. Could it be real?
  3. I remember seeing a discussion a while back here... https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/340015-at-it-again/
  4. Haha yes you are right I guess...
  5. True and I am all about individualism... I have an instrument with an unique scroll but it is also executed with beauty and precision not like the one on the OP
  6. Yes I can tell by looking at your profile picture... but come on this one on the OP is pretty funky looking
  7. Whoever made this violin scroll was not their "forte" https://t2-auctions.com/auctions/lot/?csid=2199552000&cpid=3759669248&filter_key=
  8. Ouch... and then they dipped the entire tip and upper half in the bucket with black paint to cover it up
  9. Jeemin Kim in NYC is an amazing restorer.
  10. Well... I hope during 2022 those of you who are selling bows- sell many. Those of you on the hunt for bows - find your dream. Happy New Year to all!!!
  11. Everyone searches for their dream instrument first... then the bow search begins. Never heard of anyone buying a Voirin or a Tourte to play on a JTL/ Mark Laberte violin/cello etc., For years I used a great playing bow stamped P. Serdet (commercially made in Mirecourt for the Serdet workshop) with instruments from a completely different legue
  12. Emile Germain was my first decent violin I owned hence my screen name. Consistently- very solid instruments
