  1. Hello. I'm going back to the workshop and would like to know which are your strategies to disifect violins once they have been tested by clients. Some musician try instruments and once they have tested them how do you treat them (the instruments of course)? Of course alcoholic solutions is not an option. Is there any safe procedure? Just let them in standby for fourteen days? Maybe nothing is needed? I look forward your opinions. Thanks in advance.
  2. Here are some inside photos. The edges of the ribs are severely damaged. And I'm not sure all the linings are original.
  3. Maybe the characteristic features of Mittenwald are shared by another schools. (build with a mold, inserted linings, one piece lower rib, scroll fluting to the pegbox...) So which are the specific ones that have led you to Mittenwald instead to any other schools?
  4. They seem to be overlapping the corner blocks but I am not sure. Maybe they are inserted into them. I should open it and see.
  5. Could you please explain which things make you think that? I'd appreciate it. Thanks
  6. Yes. It looks like a repair. The ribs are very narrow indeed (from 26 to 29 mm)
  7. No. I don't think so. Why do you ask?
  8. Yes. I'm afraid important belly cracks
  9. Hello. I have this violin bow which has been restored but has had a bad crack. The button and ferrule are golden but I don't know if it is gold or not. It is stamped. Can anyone identify it? Thanks ina advance.
  10. Hello. I need help to identify this violin. The corner blocks are asymetric (longer on the lower side of the C bout) and the narrow linings seem to overlap them (although I'm not quite sure). The fluting of the scroll reaches the pegbox. The lower rib is one piece. The top block has a hole probably from original nail to attach the neck. It will need a lot of work but I think it can be worth the effort. Can anyone help? thank you very much in advance.
  11. Thanks a lot. Yes the violin is recent and I'm sure the varnish hasn't cured yet as it still has a soft texture, you can almost leave your fingerprints on it. I keep a record of the thicknesses so I will have a look at them and tletyou know.
  12. Hello. I recently have built a violin. It has been played by a musician and he has given me his feedback: The sound seems not to project. It looks like as if the sound is sweet but remains inside the violin and doesn't project outside. I am afraid I applied too many layers of varnish. Could this be one reason? Thanks in advance.
