The four are going to be: #1 Top & bottom plates thin in the center. #2 Top & bottom plates thick in the center. #3 top plate thin center & bottom plate thick center. #4 top plate thick center & bottom plate thin center. some old high-arched instrument are tipe #3. other many (newer) instrument are tipe #2. #3 is faster response.

  8. quote: Originally posted by: Omobono I think usually a dowel rod is used instead of the bow in such cases. Mightn't be a bad idea for you either. thanks, i'll try it in my bamboo rod.

  19. Quote: What I do is use a jig that clamps the plate endwise. The jig has a stationary anchor at one end and a hinged plate at the other. Both are slotted for convenient engagement of the plate. The "stationary" end can be moved to different positions for violas or children's violins etc. The two ends are joined by a piece of all-thread with a wing-nut. I put in the plate and tighten the nut beyond snug to give an extra "sagitta" of 3-5 mm depending on my judgement of how stiff the plate is. The plate bends as it wishes, and I mount the bar with no spring. Somehow this seems as though it would automatically account for something involved with the strength of the arch. I have not noticed any displacement of f-hole wings. But I will be on the lookout in the future. Very interesting. I use a jig like Michael's pix by 24mm plywood in repair works. Your jig plan is so good, so usefull to make and repair. I will and want take it. Thanks.
  20. In fact, the best one I favorite in all of music is Clarinet Concerto by Mozart.
  21. I saw many orchestra players used Synoxa and Corelli or Tonica for long lasting A string, but for good balanced tone, I think Obligato or Dominant or Olive is better.
  22. My favorite Vn: Bach No.2, Mendelssohn Vn, Va: Mozart Sinfonia Concertante Vc: Lalo, Rodrigo Concierto Galante P: Mozart 23
