  1. I took the Guarneri chinrest off my new violin to replace it with a Flesch one and there was a little surprise waiting for me. It seems that wherever the cork touched the varnish, it sticks and leaves a residue that I can't seem to remove. On the back of the violin it actually lifted the varnish off. Its ok because the Flesch chinrest covers it, but what if I want a side mounted one one day? Is there a way to repair this? Thanks
  2. I have a European violin with obligato strings. (just about $1300) The strings have a nice warm, mellow sound. However, I think I'd like to try something a little louder. I tried obligatos on another violin that is not mine, and I thought the volume would break glass. Is Evah Pirazzi what Im looking for for my violin? Can I go louder with the same warm properties, or do I have to go to brighter strings for more volume. Also, can adjusting the soundpost or anything else increase the volume of the instrument? Thanks in advance for any advice. Stephen
