  1. Although this example is about 12x bigger than yours, you may be able to contact the maker to get some tips. Hopefully yours sounds 12x better too.
  2. Who made the one that was selling for hundreds of thousands?
  3. Does your phone or computer have a camera? If so you can record a clip for us this way, I cannot wait to see and hear the violin! Congrats.
  4. Wonderful, can you post a video of it being played so we can hear the very good sound?
  5. Wonderful thread. I can't stop thinking that the back of the head is most certainly high on craque. Can we see a photo of the tailpiece that you were originally excited about until you realized that it too was totalled?
  6. I am horrified with the outline of this instrument, sorry I can not be of more help.
  7. It should be clear at this point that old unusable pernambuco (and carbon fiber) bows need to be repurposed as fence posts for dollhouses.
  8. Those standard “wolf eliminator” rubber and plastic clamp things that we cellists put on the g string below the bridge… those usually don’t eliminate the wolf at all but are primarily in my experience used to manipulate a wolf note up or down so you can position the wolf to be between notes in order to avoid the worst of it.
  9. Lifelong cellist here, I think bows are way overrated in terms of importance.
  10. The contour lines of the violas frame this man with an ultra-sexy torso outline of a disney princess. So perfect that I imagine the photographer having naughty thoughts at the time. Thank you for posting this gem.
  11. I am so happy that many of you appreciate these. Next time I'm there I will do more odd angles of the Amatis and the Steiner. And if there are any angles or details you want to see for any specific instrument, post it here and I will deliver next time I go.
  12. I can't help but notice that the price was 1,500 and someone changed it to 4,500. I mean, put on a new label so the customers doesn't see the jacking up right before their eyes. Or maybe, as it seems, the seller did try to remove the label and it started stripping off the varnish so they left it on, something to take note of.
