    Why do cello and viola makers make dark sounding violins?

    Larry, I live just down the road from you. We should get together and look at instrument!

    3D printing files

    I uploaded the Betts dicom. There wasn't room for more than one.

    3D printing files

    What would the best way be to share them?

    3D printing files

    I can't find the link now. Maybe it's been changed or they've been removed?

    3D printing files

    The LOC and Smithsonian scans are public, unless they've been taken down since I last checked. If they aren't still there I can send you a .zip file (I'm assuming that's ok since they were at one time available?).

    A.D.'s new bench

    Mix dirt, horse manure, ashes and rabbit urine. Keep damp and let these weird crystals form (a couple months). They dissolve in warm water.

    Which violin to choose

    Where are you located? There are exhibitions held regularly all over the world. That's always a good place to start, by being able to play several decent instruments side by side and be able to talk to a handful of makers or dealers.

    Stradivari's secret was a concept?

    No worries. I think we do at least partially agree about that.

    David, just because the channel isn't much lower than the edgework or the edgework has been worn down the the thickness of the channel doesn't mean there isn't a channel.

    That has to do with the resolution, not the accuracy. That particular Amati, if I remember correctly is around 5.7, both from the CT scan and from physical measurements. The Kreisler scan also reads the same measurements as the physical violin.

    Absolutely NOT going on 1/2" thick. They're CT scans, and accurate.
