  1. I have 18 sets of older European Spruce (2 pc) sets for sale. Most are Violin, but some are large enough for Viola. Feel free to ask for measurements etc. I also will get up 12 European Maple backs, mostly 1 piece and quite nice. Almost all of these were purchased from International Violin by the luthier I purchased them from. He purchased them about 15-18 years ago, and (I think) that IVC told him that they were at least 15yrs aged at that time. Most are stamped with the IVC model #8440, current price on these are $73. Most of these will be selling for $60, however if a set is exceptional, it will be more. These sets for sale are at least 15 years older than what IVC is currently selling. He mentioned that he worked with the purchaser there and a few of these were even older than standard, and a better grade. FWIW, Tarisio just finished a T2 auction with older (30-50yrs) sets and they went from $48-$360, averaging $136 a set. Pics are in order (#16-18). Refe(r to proper number. Seems probably the cheapest and fastest shipping is USPS priority large box, $21.50. Can in some cases with the tops, get more than one set in a box(2-3??) #16 $60 #17 $80 #18 $80

  3. That's #2. Most are marked 8440 somewhere (usually on the side) but the only one that's stamped in a pic is the 2nd set (pic 4,5,6) right? just want to make sure I get you what you want. jeff

  6. actually, one person bought about 12 of them and won't pay. I'm thinking of putting them up here.
  7. I have this, but I wasn't sure if that is what Bruce Babbit meant in the book. He referenced: Chronology: Violin-Making in the Musikwinkel of Bohemia and Saxony and in Bubenreuth and Markneukirchen Today. I found the "short version" referenced, and, Lyndon's paste on Violinist.com (from page 16)? Confused.
  8. Also, couldn't find anything on "A short Chronology of violin making in the musikwinkel of Bohemia and Saxony and in Bubenreuth and Markneukirchen Today" by Wisehart.
  9. I was reading the German Bow (VSA) book that just came out, and Bruce mentioned a reference to in from this Assoc's yearbooks that had some in depth history of some of the early/later Markneukirchen bow makers. I googled it, but the sight won't come through on my end, repeatedly. Any idea if I can get access to these? Are they in English too? Or, if online I could use a "translator"...... Edit: Maybe thinking that a German Violin Makers Assoc would put their stuff in English is a pretty pompous thought...................
  10. Here are some pics of the tools left. Let me know if I can send a pic of something you might want. jeff
  11. One good thing....I'm getting a lot of reading done. I recently bought out a luthiers stock with a ton of great luthier books. All I could think as I"m cataloging them, is that I want to keep them all! I'm getting the chance to read them these 3 weeks. I didn't think I would have the chance to read them before I sold them , but I've just finished a few. I never seem to have the time to do this, but I guess this is a silver lining in all of this.
  12. Well stated. I have moved away from cleating, more, and more. The caveat being "the first one to glue it" correctly, or am I "redoing" one. In the latter, I almost always feel I have to cleat, as the joint is so compromised....usually.
  13. We have been in a "shelter in place" shutdown (so, to speak) here in the SF 8 county bay area since Tuesday. Both my wife's biz and mine teeter on the edge of disaster most of the time anyway. I have about 35 employees and she has 3. It's really surreal to watch the bills come up on the computer to be paid, with zero money coming in. This is going to be devastating for us, even if we go back to normal in 3 weeks-not likely. I can withstand it better than her little biz, the landlords (so far) are the biggest hurt (expense, with no relief) on small businesses during a shutdown, though all I hear is that orders are coming down to keep businesses from getting evicted, not much help. But, we are not what's important at this exact moment. Patience. I hope all realize that this is not about the current numbers. It's about not getting to Italy's numbers, and the less healthy. I know most know this, but I'ts amazing to hear some that just don't get this point. I'm glad our administration (and his mentor at Fox) have come around....a little. Tough pill to swallow, but we need to realize what's really important. This virus, more than any other, carries well with healthy people showing NO signs. That's just a recipe for disaster, as we have seen in other countries. No doubt this will flatten the curve of infections, but the unknown future with all our income and $ value tied up in retail business is worrisome. Oh well, it's kinda retirement for 3 weeks.
  14. What tools are left are in the thread for "Books for sale, A lot" now. I didn't put all on ebay.
  15. Since our area is now shutdown for 3 weeks for the virus, I have the time to put this stuff up for sale. I have these books for sale. Most are in "unused" condition. Doesn't look like most of the good ones have even been looked at. Will gladly send pics of individual items of need be. Probably best to PM me if you want something rather than post. Post if you have a question that you think others would want the answer to. All are being sold for the amount in the "sell for" column, the 'NEW" column is for your reference. jeff New Sell used 1 Cello soundpost measuring tool $20 $10 1 Wurlitzer?
