    Laurel or Yanny?

    The interesting bit being the clip that isolates the high and low frequencies... Not the dress colour.

    Laurel or Yanny? A high vs low frequency puzzle.

    Strad (and other) models database?

    I have seen top and back casts. The bridge dents are deep!

    We need a "Like" button on Mn.

    How about i think we can afford these if everyone donates a Bitcoin.

    Laberte Label?

    It's still good handwriting.

    I had trouble matching the cast to the ct scan. Although excellent overall, the edges of the plate casts are not well defined.

    Thanks! I usually only get negative feedback.

    If FedEx doesn't print at the specified size, that's not a file problem.

    Laberte Label?

    The border looks fuzzy. Stylistically, the handwriting looks like I would expect for 1921, but the ink seems very black and fresh.

    Hi, I did two types of drawings of forms: from existing forms, and from ct scans of instruments. The Kreiser is taken from a ct scan showing the ribs just above the back. I'm not a medical imaging specialist, so I can't account for the discrepancy. There is cm scale in the drawing to help avoid printing errors.

    Stradivari's secret was a concept?

    The remains of Strad's workshop contained neither sandpaper nor a suitable tool for sanding or scraping through sound holes. Fry does not give the tool's MS number, and Mike Molnar and I found nothing even remotely suitable in the catalogues and the photo CD.

    Craig Tucker, in rememberence.

    Guffaw! (To quote CT). I did not always see eye-to-eye with him, but I suspect that's because he was the bigger man.

    Looks like mercuric sulfide. I can't tell Chinese from Dutch with low resolution images though.

    Good find. Reading...

    The answer is not a discrete time and date, but rather time-transgressive one. And like the Luthier's guild, may not have existed everywhere. Don't forget that the common Baroque case was a woolen bag, and in the late 19th century it was a pinkish coloured pasteboard box.
