    JTL violins

    quote: Originally posted by: Brad_Dorsey I don't think you have to worry about buying a fake Medio Fino any more than you would worry about buying a fake Timex watch. Agree... It was targeted as student grade violin. However, the one I have sound relatively good. One in Tarisio aution sold for 375 yesterday. Dean

  3. Report in fingerboard. My daughter's school will have a music festival in later April. A fews of the six grade kids want to make up quartet to play in the festivel. The young violinists and violist have 4+ years of experiences. They are looking for a book with easy quartet pieces. Any recommendation? Dean

  5. quote: Originally posted by: Nonado A few more questions for anyone who wants to answer: How is the tone judging work? Does one judge play and two listen? Do they all play each instrument above a certain qualification threshold? Is it done in a small room or a large hall? Michael R The demo play I mentioned happened after the awards have been handout, and it was done in a hall that sit about 300 people. Forgotten how the instruments were selected to be played. I believe Toby Appel described some detail of the tone judgement process, but I was not paying attention on during that period.
  6. Strongly agree with David and Jeffery on the "clean" of the competition. At the judge play session in VSA 2006, either the violin or viola judge described the process of selecting the top the instructments. The two cello judges played the top 7 instrucments, and the gold metal instructments cleanly standout to my ears. I also like the option that a maker can make appointment to meet the judge to get input. Dean
  7. quote: Originally posted by: David Burgess How did you come to the conclusion that this violin needs a lower tension E? First, my kid teacher comments that violin is little bright. The second is When the E string is at Eb, it sound little sweeter which is what my kid tend to like. From those reasons, I am interested to try to get a lower tension E, and see the result of it.
  8. The gold label medium or thin E string is used on most of my violins. One of the 7/8 violin can use a even lower tension E than the gold label thin E. Any suggestion?
  9. The Jay Haide 7/8 cello, we tested at Boston, had the make in GuangZhou label. There are at least a handful of few VSA tone/workmanship award winners are working in GuangZhou(aka Canton).
  10. Per Sam, the DVD has the traditional 5 arch and the graduation maps of all three violins in the project, and it has the software to play/pause the CAT SCAN of the three violins together.
  11. Darren, You can call VSA office. The DVD, which has all data and software to perform 3D view, was sold for 75 dollars. Dean
  12. Thanks everyone for the response. I will get them in near future.
  13. Just run into these ebony miniature planes on the web. They are very inexpensive. Are they small enough for cello making? Dean
  14. Here is the link on Baked bridge.
