  1. http://www.cittern.theaterofmusic.com/old/virchi_1271.html All round amazing, the satyr couple on the back forms the "hook". The male has a hook of his own.

  3. Wow, five pages about alcohol, no wonder the bars opened too early.
  4. Not necessarily, just not a big tree. Outside may not be quartered but close. Maybe I'll ask him for an end shot. He makes gambas and was going for mutltiple sectioned backs. He thought of me for peg and tailpiece material. It would be great for that but I'm stocked up. pretty straight for blackwood IYAM
  5. I made pegs for a customer with a Guad, who also owned a distillery. As a thank you he sent me a case of eau-de-vis. When I met up with him many years later he wondered why I never thanked him. It never got to me. Either the Post or somebody working there confiscated it. You can send wine in Oregon if someone 21 years old recieves it but not hard alcohol. Unless that has changed recently.
  6. I have a friend who is moving to Europe (when they let us back in) and is selling some boards of nice umpingo. I don't see why it wouldn't make nice fingerboards. I would use it for pegs and tailpieces but I already have enough to last. The pieces are 4.5"X30"X by 1.12" give or take. He wants about $100 per board depending on size.
  7. We've got it everwhere. My wife hates it.
  8. What viola is that Bruce? I like the pegs.
  9. Several years back there was a photo of the fittings of the restored Cannone here. I think they were made by someone in Naples. I remember them as being blonde and being sort of baroque looking. It would be Bruce C. that would know the answer to this as David said. My memory is very "Strad-like" since he is not only older than dirt, but actually under the dirt.
  10. I think that my visit was when we met Mark.
