  1. Can you be a little more clear on what you mean? When you said "All my violins...", are you referring to all the Deblayes you've came across? And when you said "...typical of something", what do you mean by that? Thanks
  2. This is actually an Albert Deblaye according to the certificate of authenticity from Roger Lanne but the certificate never stated a model so Martin's probably right in that it isn't modeled after anything. Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  3. I forgot to add that the varnish is a spirit varnish.
  4. Thanks Martin. Anyone else have any input?
  5. I just realized that I posted this in the wrong section of the forum. Hopefully, somebody can move it to the right section.
  6. What is it modeled after?? If any?
  7. There was a huge scandal involving Gammuto violins a couple of years back which involved Mr. Gammuto putting up pictures of "violins he made" on his website but it turned out that he got those pictures from other well known makers. There were other issues as well involving Gammuto violins which you can read here: My link
  8. The seller even linked an article where it says "Gammuto is recognized as one of America’s most distinguished violin makers." My link
  9. Martin, how do the GA Pfretzschner bows compare to the HR Pfretzschner bows in terms of pricing and demand?
  10. Pegheds, the parent company of perfection pegs, come in different sizes so you might not need to bush. Also, unlike perfection pegs, the head of the pegheds are made from either ebony, rosewood, or boxwood.
  11. There isn't much information on the web about this particular workshop violin. So here's a chance for people to inspect the quality (or lack thereof) of a Ming Jiang Zhu workshop violin. This model is made with European wood and cost $3500. I'm currently choosing between this violin and a 1925 Albert Deblaye workshop violin.
  12. Yes, its is now owned by Georg Ettinger.
  13. I just want to add that Hans Weisshaar Violins in LA sells Chinese violins from Beijing that are built to their specs for $3k - $4k. Everything including the varnishings were done in China except the setups which were done in their shop. These violins compare favorably to the their own stock of antique German, French, and American made violins in the same price range.
