  1. No hysteria here, but It is all a bit of a mess, and has been for some time, its clearly shows we are a divided country and the only way forward is compromise on all sides. What ever happens I am a European at heart, I identify as a European and I need to find a way to continue to work with and respect those who do not share my views. back to topic anybody seen anything nice in the auction that they care to share
  2. As promised a very long time ago, here is a link to our paper published by the VSA Statistical Analysis of Bridges for Violin, Viola and Cello Its a bit of a long read for the Bridge Geeks amoungst us. www.violinbridges.co.uk
  3. As promised a long time ago here is a link to our paper published by the VSA Statistical Analysis of Bridges for Violin, Viola and Cello on another note it looks like a few of the English auctions have moved their October sale dates because this nonsense that is brexit. I know amberviolins who have a small sale ending on the 3/09 have also moved their fine sale to October the 21st. I have heard tarisio and bromtons are doing the same, perhaps amati too.
  4. it does say on amberviolins mailouts that the lots are not searchable/ traceable after the sale, via google etc so I guess thats why they dont use invaluable, as they would have no control of how long they cache old lots to the internet. thanks televet, after a huge amount of time, I am very proud that the VSA will be publishing our paper, written by Mike Carlson "Statistical Analysis of Violin, Viola and Cello Bridges" based on the research and data I have collected over the last 10 years. its some piece of work and new data to the community, 77 pages long and as dry as toast. Will post a link on the general forums when its done but should be very soon.
  5. the forum is to highlight nice instruments in coming auctions, and we all really appreciate it when dwight, martin and a few regulars highlight whats coming in their favorite auctions. I guess were all becoming predictable in our posts. It a nice fiddle.
  6. very pretty fiddle in amberviolins march auction https://www.amberviolins.com/lot/violin-attributed-to-montagnana-venice-1740/
  7. Jaster we should also say welcome to maestonet with your first post. Televet, I know for sure amberviolins also has a fine sale in london in march and one also finishing in a week..does tarsio also have a fine sale in london? Bows for players are always so personal, I like to try them.
  8. Jaster I am curious why only tariso, especially if you dont live in the US.I am sure those are nice bows but If you wait a month, all the major online auction house will be having fine instruments sales in March. I would look at amberviolins.com, ingles and hayday, amati and bromptons. A huge amount of choice to the discerning buyer.
  9. thanks martin swan. nothing a talented man like yourself could fix in a jiffy:) yes looking at those pictures it is a bit of a curio/ boiler of a fiddle, perhaps be great for a scotish traditional fiddle player. will see, lots more auctions coming online with t2 and amati, perhaps even bromptons might push a quick sale out. Lots out there, have you seen anything that takes your fancy that you dont mind bringing attention to?
  10. Wood butcher I am connected to many people here in the uk but if you look at my history, most will take you to bridge related posts as I created violinbridges.co.uk, we are hopefully soon able to add our paper on the statistical analasis of our bridge database, culmination of almost 10 years work... As a fellow fiddle lover it’s always nice to share the unusual, where ever it may be. I love an odd scroll or button.. but your right it always the same people who seen to give the heads up in certain auctions, Dwight, and a few other regulars to point a few, but I think that’s probably more as that’s what we are watching and good thing..
  11. Nice and slightly wacky scotish fiddle on amberviolins. https://www.amberviolins.com/lot/violin-by-charles-cramond-aberdeen-c1800/ love that scroll.
  12. Some Nice old Aubert SUPER LUX Bridges in the June Amber Auction https://www.amberviolins.com/auction-category/june-27th-2017/accessories/
