  1. It's a pity, they made very good quality covers.
  2. Thanks for the kind thought... we're holding our own in Cremona but the contagions in the country are starting to creep up as people let down their guard. Average age for infection is now 23... young people returning from their vacation in Malta/Greece/Croatia/Spain infected, and then going to the disco to infect everyone else.
  3. Hi Dwight, I'll agree with you, my middle school orchestra got a supply of factory violins and they came in cases just like this one. I would doubt that the whole cases were made in Italy though, I have no knowledge of case makers at that time making such a product. Cheers!
  4. I second Davide's opinion, I believe this to be a poorly written and researched article, with a number of misleading statements starting from the first paragraph.
  5. How about that. Thank you for this information, extremely interesting.
  6. This is considered the first painting of a violin. It is dated 1534, painted by Gaudenzio Ferrari.
  7. At least the hygrometer and thermometer are aligned, but I think I will throw this conception out the window and into the moat, as Modigliani would have approved.
  8. Here I was channeling Federico Fellini after a good Amarone, does this count?
  9. David, did you know that Horacio Pagani has every one of the screws in his cars made to special order out of titanium, with a Torx head? The cost is rumored to be close to $100,000 per car (the screws, not the car). That's one way to solve the problem, just throw money at it!
  10. Especially considering that this wristwatch costs $15,000 -
  11. Regarding screw head alignment, we do it as well so people won't complain about that too. However I believe that a screw should go in as far as it has to for optimum traction, not too much and not to little, and to heck with the slot alignment. The problem is it looks terrible!
  12. I can get you one autographed by my dear friend Don Vito...
