  1. Yes the video is great... interesting how it is always around the note C in his case half step lower B...
  2. So removing the center mounted chin-rest almost completely eliminated the wolf tone. Then I experimented with different side mounted chin-rests I have lying around. The one made of olive wood seemed to be the best fit. Thanks for the input
  3. Marc Laberte perhaps? ... lower end model
  4. haha this thread is taking a strange turn... good idea to experiment with lower tension strings. Will keep you posted
  5. My luthier is away for a few weeks teaching a class in Massachusetts. I shall wait for his return. I may try the eliminator
  6. Any tips on how to eliminate an intermittent wolf tone? Seems to only appear on the note C in first position on A strings and also on the same note on D string in third position. The instrument was not properly set up after I acquired it. I just picked it up from the shop after replacing fingerboard, new bridge and complete set up but the wolf tone seems to be still present.
  7. This looks nothing like Rocca (father or son) I have seen before.
  8. How about the most obvious Strad... his cellos are really not that popular. Most A list players prefer Montagnana, Goffriller nowadays no? Rostropovich played a Strad...
  9. True... but I guess there are less options when it comes to cellos. Tecchler also comes to mind where his cellos are much more sought after than the violins.
  10. Cappa cellos are more valuable and more sought after compared to the violins. I worked for many years with a member of the Met orchestra who had a beautiful Cappa cello with replaced top. Had a beautiful sound...
  11. that means we do a maestronet group buy. We sell it and then we triple our initial investment... who is in?
  12. Add a set of Larsen Gold strings and a Pirastro Korfker... Case looks sturdy though https://www.rimowa.com/de/en/stories/rimowa-x-gewa-introduction.html
