  1. This question came up some 15 years ago. Here I give the link in which I described a useful method: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/311643-neck-flame/&tab=comments#comment-316555 Good luck!
  2. And still no answer how many violins mr Zuger has made with his own concept. He may have put hundreds of hours in making instruments but maybe none has come to a playable instrument?.
  3. High quality bridges and a variety on options can be found at Milo Stamm (Germany)
  4. Everything seems to be sold out. Good business!
  5. Fe(Cl)3 inwhich the Fe(III)-ion is involved is quite good soluble in water. Iron itself is not soluble in water.
  6. 3/4 is .925 of 4/4 and 1/2 is .925 of 3/4. You may find the sequence for sizes 1/4 and 1/8!
  7. Pictures cannot be made visible.
  8. Kauri Gum does not dissolve in ethanol.
  9. Watched the video of the sound comparison on cello but did not recognize real differences. Though I'm wondering if the complete set of strings is re-installed on an other tailpiece how many things have changed than? Is the bridge position exactly the same? There might be more variables in this game.
  10. The difference between Seidl and Seidel can be significant!
  11. Because it's so true! The human ear is the best instrument to recognize a real fifth.
  12. I use a tuning fork for the A. The other strings are tuned by ear. No need to use a tuning tool.
