  1. I am horrified with the outline of this instrument, sorry I can not be of more help.
  2. It should be clear at this point that old unusable pernambuco (and carbon fiber) bows need to be repurposed as fence posts for dollhouses.
  3. 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.
  4. Lifelong cellist here, I think bows are way overrated in terms of importance.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. And here are more from that room before it was remodeled and when it hosted the Sau-Wing Lam violin collection on temporary display. https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/329111-are-these-violins-as-good-as-claimed-photos/ including my other favorite instrument, the reddish Bergonzi Violin Here: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/329111-are-these-violins-as-good-as-claimed-photos/&do=findComment&comment=598334
  9. I posted a bunch of photos a few years ago here when the musical instrument room had its grand reopening: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/340032-photos-met-museum-music-room-grand-reopening-32218/
  10. And a random bonus shot of one of my favorite paintings of a bunch of paintings.
