  1. Hi all, I don’t know if it is proper to post this topic here or not. I am looking for a cello competition for 8 grader student near Boston area but cannot find any good information from web. School teacher and my private cello teacher did not give me too much help either. My cello teacher is a very detail and very professional teacher. Sometimes when we spent months to finished a music, she said I can try a competition by that piece of music. This time she told me that again which is very encourage me. I have joined school district competition last year and I am seeking some other com
  2. Maybe the below information can interest some one. Before my dad put this bridge on the cello, he did tried-and-error to make another three bridges. He tried French style bridges, one is with weak and long legs smaller head narrower legs span and another one is with 50% stronger legs and bigger head and larger legs span. For Belgian bridge, he has a very long leg and very small head and short legs span. Yes, he is an engineer and likes to find out something. Finally he made the final one that has sound I like. It is a French style with a just little bit longer and strong legs (maybe 55~60
  3. Thanks everyone. My cello was made year 2010, the same year my dad bought it. So, it was very fresh and it should be the reason. I love that cello and I practice it every day. I am very appreciated that you let me know it is not harmful and I don't need to fix anything. My dad did a lot of googling before he started working on that bridge and he starts googling again because of this and try to find out what's wrong of his work. I think I can let him know this and let him relax, won't feel guilty and then have a beer . Thanks everyone again! Tom

You are right, the varnish came off a little when the first bridge was removed. The second one stand there for two more years and almost totally stick away all the rest varnish. Is it ok to leave it white without varnish and won't damage the wood. Anything can prevent the sticky legs? Currently the bridge legs cover that white rectangle and won't see the bare wood from outside. Just want to make sure it won't continue hurt
  5. I have an eastman cello with oil varnish. The original bridge came with this cello is just ok so my dad bought a Aubert De Luxe and carved the bridge for my new cello. As I can see, the new bridge stands upright on the back and the feet fit the cello perfectly. The whole set up actually worked very well. New bridge opened up the sound a lot. It worked good for two years until several weeks ago when I changed the strings. After I removed old strings and also the bridge, I found the oil varnish sticked with the bridge feet and had be removed from cello top plate. It left two small rectang
