  3. wow, anyone know where to get this? or anyone here sell that string? I want to try a sets..
  4. I recently asked by a friend about special string that the luthier said it only shared between the luthier.. Here's the Color (String, Tailpiece, Peg): G-Orange-Yellow D-Orange-Green A-Orange-Orange Blue E-Orange-Brown Anyone know what is it? I've searched to website and I can't find it.. The example can be seen in Thomas Hoyer's website
  5. I got correct on the Tesco one, but not with the other 2..
  6. Why I didn't think about Photoshop, hahaha Violadamore, here some from me using your second picture as benchmark: 1. - pale black and white 2. some additional contrast 3 smooth
  7. Thank you Violadamore for helping make contrast in the picture! So now I can read it: (shield) COPY OF AMATI Manufactured in S......(v or y?) ---- (saxony? savoy?) (signature, 2nd letter looks like "R") But still, I don't know whose label it is, anyone used to see the same label, shield, and signature?
  8. Anyone know whose label is it? Anyone know whose signature is it? It's on my Copy of Amati, I took some photos after removing the top, this is the best photo I can get, but it seems that it's too dirty so it still hard fot me to see the shield and the signature.. Windu *Edited picture in post 2,3, and 5
  9. Thanks Ben for this thread! In my little experience in violin world: the psychological aspect of player often the biggest aspect when choosing an instrument. an example: a friend of mine, he has 2 violins, an old amati and a very good modern stradivarius copy. He inherite the Amati from his grandfather and the stradivarius copy he bought himself by his wage. In my observation he's more careful when handing the Amati and play more relaxed and enjoyable on it.
  10. I just knew that the strings attached are "attributed" to Pirastro Evah Pirazzi, a very nice synthetic strings..
