  1. THANK YOU! Alex is very appreciative of everyone's help.
  2. https://www.gofundme.com/f/fundraising-for-ukrainian-violin-maker I encourage everyone to help this nice person and a good violin maker. I owned and played Alex's instruments in the past. He as well as his entire country need help and deserves a better faith.

  6. How about someone organize some help for Alex? He's lost literally everything and could use some financial help to pay for food and lodging. I already sent him quite a bit of $$$ to cover his expenses for a few days, but he could use a lot more. I am a bit surprised by the silence of the Maestronet citizens. :-(

  11. Hi Philip, Thank you for your suggestion. I totally agree. As I mentioned earlier, I placed a call to Paul Childs and got his answering service which took my phone # and told me that he will call me back within a business day. Well... I'm patiently waiting for the call back. Salchow shop moved to W 57th st, so his shop is no longer in the same building as Tarisio on W 54th. It is unknown at this point whether Paul Childs has seen this stick at Tarisio. I'm hopeful he will call me back and will be willing to inspect the bow stick. I am prepared to drive 3 hours up to Montrose, NY if Paul Childs says it's warranted. I fully intend to have it restored into a playable shape, because it does feel like it is a good bow. P.S. Saw your additional comments - thank you for the frog replica maker names!!!
  12. I got that one on Salchow, thank you. Anyone else comes to mind? I like having Plan B most of the times.
  13. Thank you for the feedback! Would you care to drop some bowmaker names who could make a replica frog? Perhaps someone around Philly or New York area? Thank you in advance!
  14. Thank you, Martin. I saw that "mark" under the head. To my untrained and w/o tools of the trade, it doesn't seem to me like a crack, but I'll wait until I get the stick into expert hands again. Mortise erosion ... yeah, fitting a frog will be loads of fun for the restorer ... Assuming that sooner or later I get to know the real maker of the bow... And assuming that I may not be able to obtain a "loose" frog of the same maker, can you or folks on the forum recommend a good frog maker who can make a faithful copy? A while back someone mentioned a couple, but my memory is failing me. I think one frog maker was named Gunther ...?
  15. Martin, Thank you for a quick comment! As this stick was originally attributed to Poirson and he first apprenticed with Maire, are you thinking this could be a Maire? What other serious issues are you referring to other than possibly extended nose? P.S. I did place a call to Paul Childs and got his answering service. Waiting for Mr. Childs call back.
