  1. Hi Kirk, I think he means the f holes are widely spaced. Get it? f-holian and hypertelorism, abnormal space between organs Confusingly made up phrase... Where did you see this VSO? I saw a confusing mishmash hybrid that just doesn't fit together, not as nuanced as observation as others have more correctly pointed out above.
  2. https://www.anderson-group.com/
  3. Anderson has way better rates. Join the ACMP, see what the rate is. Why did Clarion drop you, if you don't mind telling?
  4. That's what I thought. Perhaps the first sounds could be played from a chicken like that, but the trills and rapid note changing are impossible. Good eye ear!
  5. What is it with you victim blaming/shaming? And deliberate mis-statement of facts? This is the same sh*t you tried to pull in the other column, and we won't stand for it here. You misinterpreted - on purpose - the article referenced in the other post, which shows that she did report it before, that the act of reporting was substantiated, and basically you are acting like a troll. We should stop responding to AtlVcl.
  6. Try J. Michael Fischer in Los Angeles. Though he makes other instruments, every violist I have met raves about his violas. (I keep running into violists, but that's another problem. :-oD ) At Metzler's annual American luthier shoot out, his violas have always done well, and at least twice were the cream of the crop. Also, a good friend of mine plays viola - one of the best in LA - and has owned one of his violas as her main viola for the last 5 years or so. Downside is that his prices are likely to be just a bit above your top range, but perhaps you can find a used one.
  7. I see no ads of any kind here, but I keep getting swans flying under the radar address bar... OK, the swan is actually under the Dealer/Makers button. :-oD I use uBlock origin, and presto! no ads: (don't go to uBlock), instead go here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm?hl=en
  8. Some Chicago authorities put little stock into certificates from Guadagnini shop. I have been there, and...use caution.
  9. Thanks for sharing; I didn't know that about "porcupine." lulz Is that shot colorized? OTOH, I did have a student who was related to Groucho....
  10. We can start in California. https://sf.eater.com/2019/10/18/20915751/california-roadkill-law-passed-eat-kill-salvage New California Law Lets Drivers Eat Their Own Roadkill “This potentially translates into hundreds of thousands of pounds of healthy meat“
  11. Oooh. Sign me up. One can only imagine the spirits and fermented beverages to be consumed. I bet we could even get a bus - we could call it Further II, or maybe a good violin pun. I will be the Boswell to their Samuel Johnson. Sounds like fun! Fo those who don't understand one of the references, and to keep Jacob happy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_of_Samuel_Johnson retrieved on 27 October 2019. And who can forget the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test? Further was Ken Kesey's bus name.
