  1. Hi Dimitri, I've been looking into this, though we haven't actually tried anything yet. The ones I'm currently considering are here: https://www.trackershop-uk.com/product-category/personal-gps-trackers/ There doesn't seem to be a monthly charge - its a sort of pay as you go system. Some of the trackers are very small but you don't get such a long battery life with them. You mention a motion sensor - I'm not sure that they have that. But it's possible that the app would allow you to set up an alarm if the tracker was moved far from your phone - that would be clever. Martin says you make bespoke cases - it might be interesting to you that some of these trackers can be charged with a mat - they don't need a wired charger - so they could be concealed in the case. I'd be very interested to know if you find out any more about the trackers. We're are often travelling with very valuable instruments and would like something which would give us some immediate information if something went missing. Even though a thief can discard a case, they are not likely to do that in the first moments after taking something. Anna (Martin Swan Violins)
  2. BTW, we are indebted to Addie for designing the packaging of our Paganini Renaissance Bone Ground for Violins and Violas
  3. I did do some of the background research... we needed to find out how to track down Paganini's bones.... The first clue was in the section about his burial on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niccolò_Paganini This led to the dusty reaches of the web library, where there is a full description of the exhumation of Paganini's corpse (page 110-111): https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Jf5LiICDWl8C&pg=PA111&lpg=PA111&dq=František+Ondř%C3%ADček+paganini&source=bl&ots=obytJSrs6V&sig=dy7TlEePF9v2wzsZIi1CXcZLnPA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiGs6-c_bLPAhVhDMAKHaaYAcEQ6AEIIjAD#v=onepage&q=František%20Ondř%C3%ADček%20paganini&f=false
  4. Off-topic, but I've been waiting for a chance to share this video of Kilted Yoga: And the inevitable piss-take:

  7. Schrödinger's violin. Thanks to http://www.guillermsculptures.com/
  8. We have talented sheep. They know how to use a spraycan.
  9. Hi Violadamore, I wear them every morning when I'm out checking the sheep...
  10. Hi Addie, thanks for your concern, but we're fine. Martin and I are very adaptable...
  11. A photograph from the kitchen of another ambiguous omnivore. Mung bean sprouts.
  12. I thought you were joking but the site is indeed registered. What are you going to do with it?
  13. Sorry to disappoint you, Roger, but my idle moments are very brief. I did no more than google 'violin' and 'bacon'. Having just read about the 'Big Eyes' scandal I feel I should nip this in the bud before I'm called upon to create lutheriecharcuterie art in public spaces.
  14. I had an idle moment (don't tell Martin) so I went looking for a connection between bacon and violins...
