  1. Are there any features that would definitely rule in or out your “Chinese copy” theory?
  2. Thanks Martin! Who is an authority on these instruments if you wanted to push this further?
  3. Perhaps there’s a skilled copiest that you suspect?
  4. What are your thoughts? Legit? too rare to tell? Chinese copy of reference example?
  5. Thank you. Is there any question about the matter or is this matter put to rest? Here are images of the label:
  6. Dear respected members of the Maestronet community, and MaestroNuts alike, what have we here? This is owned by a friend of mine who is looking for more information. There are images of the label that I could add as well but I didn’t want to muddy the waters right up front. Post the label or not yet? Cheers and thanks in advance.
  7. This violin reminds me of the horror-inducing fraction “frankentiddle” that is the unfortunate subject of this very long thread (apologies in advance):
  8. 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.
  9. Who made the one that was selling for hundreds of thousands?
  10. 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.
  11. Wonderful, can you post a video of it being played so we can hear the very good sound?
