    Kid tripping to Hamburg. Violin shops?

    ????? Andrew
  2. My advice would be to be quiet and listen. As a tyro, your score of 280 posts in your first three months is ridiculous (and annoying). Andrew
  3. Funny ha ha or funny peculiar? Andrew

    loss of value in bow after spline

    If you want the bow to be tightened to the same degree (the same 'straightness') when playing, then the amount of hair is irrelevant is it not? Andrew

    Resizing images to specific measurements

    If all you want to do is print an image at a certain size, then you can simply set the scale percent in the page setup/print dialog box when you print it. Andrew

    Sorry - I added to my post while you were replying.

    The flaw in this argument is that you are referencing flawed bows and stating that the repair is stronger than the original wood with a flaw. Hardly surprising. Then your original statement should be: "Heads with welll done splines hold up better than flawed bow heads without splines ". What about unflawed and unbroken heads? I think this is what BF was getting at. How would you ever know? I suppose you could take a bow that you examined carefully to see if there were any flaws, apply force until the head broke and examine again to see if it did in fact break along a flaw. If not, repair it and see if it can withstand greater force. Andrew

    UK Luthiers?

    I was so pleased with getting Clutterbuck right that I didn’t notice.

    Peter Waters at Waters Violins in Wallingford is very good. John Clutterbuck (ex Hill’s) does his regaining. Andrew

    Auction house advice

    You seem to be unfamiliar with travelling to London. Depending on where you live, if you want to drive most of the way, the simplest procedure is to drive to somewhere like Wimbledon, where you can easily park, and take the tube the rest of the way. If you are approaching from a different direction, modify appropriately. Andrew

    French Polish ( Article )

    To what extent? To make a bow with a worn finish look like new? Don't some bows have an oil finish? Andrew

    Is it any worse than, say, New Orleans or Tokyo?
