    Tourte Cello Bow

    Thank you. To take the pictures I use light directly to the bow and the flash, then use the móvil zoom and take the pictures as far as I can. About the bow, how much could it cost in this condition? I am not a Cello player and don't know what to do with this one.

    Not Vuillaume, not french...

    I have this bow and I want to know your opinions. Ir is stamped Vuillaume a Paris. why someone will cut the end of the stick? only to put a smaller button? It is worth to repair/reghair?

    String setup for Francois Chanot cornerless violin

    wow, thank you. It looks great informative... now I have to decide if I open the violin and put a piece of ebony inside or let it be like a "normal" violin....

    I could not say... Maybe rosewood. @Tom FidIt would be great if you take measures of that piece. Thank you very much, the violin looks great.

    Thank you for the pictures. It looks like there is another ebony piece inside. If you could take pictures of the inside to see how it looks I really appreciated.

    talking about complicated system of bass bar and soundpost, I have in my possession a Julius Zöller violin and it looks inside more complex than the Monk´s3 bass bars.

    I can see that the one with the normal scroll is the one with tail piece, the one in right position has the "inverted" scroll. @Tom Fid has yours inverted or normal scroll?

    Please, let me know when you have the violin with you if it has a piece of wood inside. I searched information about this and found nothing. My Maline violin is waiting for this info.

    British Amateur violin 1938

    Thank you for the information. Do you think it must be let it as it is with the triple bass bar? The violin "per se" doesn't worth to be repaired, is ”only" another Saxon with a horrible sound post back crack and re varnished, no? And about this other one, the Holdsworth one, could it be considered as an amateur Luthier? Has someone more info?

    British Amateur violin 1938

    Hello, this time I have 2 violins to show and to share with you all. The first one is a Violin label and signed "A. Victor Holdsworth - Otley 1938 N3". Has someone information about this guy? The other violin look a typical Saxon/Bohemian but with the added of a 3 bass bars, maybe by another British guy from 1895. Has someone know something about this feature? or about the repairer man? and about the violin? It worth to let it as it is or is better to change the bass bar... I do not know if the violin worth any kind of reparation? VIOLIN 1 "A. Victor Holdsworth - Otley 1938 N3". VIOLIN 2 - Triple Bass bar

    ID another Mittenwald violin

    could this bass bar be original?, it seems to be badly made, with the grain wood in the wrong direction? Or not?

    Then you think it is necesary to make a new upper block and reset the neck or it could survive with this dowel? How could was this upper block and neck attachment in this kind of instruments originally?
