  1. This time I need help to know more about this double bass bow. It has the slide with a pin and a screw. It was the bow of a double bass player from the 1920s for a long time. it is 625mm long with the button and 603mm without the button (only the stick). What could be the price for a bow like this?
  2. that's the attitude. Thank you! I have learned so much from this forum that I am forever grateful. I only hope to be able to help with my instruments and my research. The idea with this instrument is to share the searches and data of the experts that I am collecting.
  3. Well, understood. I duck my ears and close my mouth.
  4. I will try Vincenzo Panormo Paris = Inside Mold? Carcassi = BOB L.Storioni = Inside Cremonese Mold. Here Andrew Carruthers remake the inisde work of a Storioni violin: https://www.andrewcarruthers.com/violin-corner-block-replacement/ Tyrolean violin 18th century = Better call @jacobsaunders or @Blank face English Hill = I guess BOB Jose Contreras = internal mold. Cremonese style. Giuseppe Ceruti = Inside Mold? 1741 GB Guadagnini = From Tariso web: “Guadagnini brought with him the Lombard methods of violin making, based on the Cremonese system; it was the first appearance of this method in Piedmont. In its use of internal molds, it was very much at odds to the now-defunct Turin method of channeled backs and templates. This method remained almost entirely within the family; we know of no others from the town who worked with him and thus learned his methods, and when later makers arrived they worked in an entirely different French-based system using external molds.” Bernardel = ? c.1725 Montagnana = BOB Castagneri = BOB on a trench Rombouts = BOB with no trench, is the posterior Dutch school who use the channel in the back. John Lott = I guess internal mold In this post @Michael Apleman try to explain this theme better than me: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/331341-construction-methods-of-venetian-makers/&do=findComment&comment=648806 My violin seems that has the linings different top and bottom. In the bottom looks Pine or spruce with the very marked grain, and in the top the lining looks more beech or willow wood and looks smoother worked. It seems that the glue is new, or at least like the cleats and repaired parts in the bottom (pine) linings, and not in the top (beech?). The top linings in one of the blocks appear to overlap part of the block. I don’t know if someone has erase the channel in the back or it had never a trench there. Under UV light I could not see nothing special. In my opinion the violin looks more Carcassi, Gabrielli or Montagnana... Comparatives with Carcassi With Gabrielli With Montagnana
  5. What? the instrument or the bow?
  6. After various inquiries and searches I still need help with this violin. Dutch experts say they don't recognize anything Dutch (De Launay and Stam). R. Terrier nothing French enough. Dendro's test determines 1734 for the last ring on the top and 80 rings with most significant cross-matches over partial overlaps of the rings with diferent provenances (number of overlapping rings in brackets): "Dutch violin possibly Rombouts (50), cello labelled Bernardel (63), c.1725 Montagnana violin (61), viola possibly Vincenzo Panormo Paris Period (80), violin possibly by Carcassi, L.Storioni (80), French viola 18th century attributed to Castagneri (59), 1741 GB Guadagnini (64), GB Guadagnini cello, Jose Contreras (76), violin attributed to John Lott, Tyrolean violin 18th century (80), Giuseppe Ceruti (76), Louis Panormo guitar (80), English Hill workshop cello (80), etc..." Now, due to a bit of a detached rib in the chinrest area, I have easily detached the back ribs almost to the button and discovered that the ribs are not inserted into a channel as they appeared from the outside. And it is possible to see better the corner blocks and the linnings What origin can this violin have with these dendro data and with a BOB construction without the rings in a channel, and with these materials and dimensions for the corner blocks and lininngs?
  7. Then, what is the meaning of this marks in this bow? Is more plausible now to determine the maker or shop?
  8. What is the meaning of this marks? and of the only 1 pin? I found it marks in the pictures of Tarisio on Lamy and Fetique, but not in Ouchard or JTL. this Martin Swan Fetique https://www.martinswanviolins.com/victor-fetique-violin-bow-1920/#images-2 This Tarisio Lamy has the marks and the heel plate in 2 pieces. This Tarisio Fetique has the two part heel plate and the triangular marks. But this pfretzschner in Martin Swan web has the marks too https://www.martinswanviolins.com/hr-pfretzschner-violin-bow-1920/ thank you
  9. It seems the back of the heel plate has 2 pins 1 pin only and the triangles you said. The pins looks silver too because when I clean the heel plate the pin seems to disappear.
  10. I have take better pictures of the heel plate and it seems two pieces and not one. the Parramon shop now has told me that they haven't register of this bows but they know that Parramon bought to different bow makers in France.
  11. I have measured from the ferrule to the button, in the bottom of the frog, and it seems that the fluctuation is minor, from 13,3 to 13,5.
  12. I don't know that under UV light it becomes white. I have tried and in a part, where there is less varnish, it is white, and in other, where the varnish is more red, it seems like the purflling dissapear.
  13. I have the feeling that the purfling is different material in diferent places. Maybe there is a part of whalebone and the rest, being a repair, is made of dyed wood. upper bout back: bottom bout back: central bout back: corner top:
  14. Sorry, here you have. The bow brand is PARRAMON - BARCELONA. My though was that the bow is not made by him and that it could be made in other place and bought by him and rebranded. If someone know more about who was the maker of the Parramon bows.... I think it could was bought from 1940/50
  15. The marks in the head side are, I think, from the bow holder in the case it comes. The mark in the top of the head looks like the marks caused for the hit with the bow in the music stand to make the "applausse" of the orchestra members. are a photographic illusion.
