  1. What is table post? If you mean the fair price by insurance value, I guess I wanted to know that price. Actually my main instrument is piano but i also play violin at an intermediate level. On the other hand, I generally try and exchange violins to know more of the sound quality. Violin is maybe the most variable instrument in that sense. I sometimes see violins which seem perfect but sound poor. I think the crucial string is the G in that sense. Generallsy new or unquality violins have very thin and non-resonating G note. I have seen better violins to this one, but this one resonates well and its projection is ok. On the other hand the diameters of the parts are well-calculated. Maybe it sounds good because it is old and the wood is dry. But as I said I am not a luthier and just trying to understand the value of the violin by its sound.
  2. Another question is assuming that the violin has a nice quality sound what may be the approximately price?
  3. Thanks for your replies. If you can also underline the differences and characteristics of Mirecourt and Schonbach I would appreciate it very much.
  4. Thanks four your replies. Which parts dou you think needs close-up? Other than that I know that the bridge and the other parts are ebony but am not sure about the kind of tree it was crafted from. It has two repaired cracks in front and I the back is in one-piece.
  5. Hello guys, I have this old violin which resonates very well and is finely crafted. On the other hand I am not sure if it is an original Mirecourt violin or not. Can you help me out? Thanks. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/89/img9058dz.jpg/][/url http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/545/img9050xk.jpg/][/url http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/842/img9053l.jpg/][/url http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/844/img9056w.jpg/][/url
