  1. Unless the bar is not functioning, ie flapping loose. I would vote for leaving it.
  2. Speaking for myself I would be honored if you would set her up if Chris and Nick are happy to ship her on once the varnish is good and dry. That might work well since Dwight is at least in the same State as you for the case. I think we are all eager to hear this violin. I wonder if we could organize a streaming sound check? Anyone know any soloists we can badger for a celebrity endorsement ? I am hoping we can get the finished violin up to the Pacific North West before it is sold. Are we all okay with me approaching Jason Price to see if we can place it in a Tariso sale or does anyone have a better plan.
  3. It would certainly save another trip if you are okay with that and Dorian doesn't mind. Sounds like we are ready for the chin rest and case from Dwight once we know where to send them. I am more than happy to pay for pegs strings etc if needed.
  4. Chris Jacoby has almost finished the varnish. Hopefully we will have some pictures soon. Setup time is coming up fast.
  5. Could be Pfretzschner ?
  6. Well, Mozart would likely disagree. Salzburg didn't become Austrian until 1805…
  7. That is really nasty
  8. Weird, surely only Don should have a rocket ship
  9. When I hit a thousand fatuous posts I'm gonna be 'Clueless Contributor' but I kind of like Dilettante Hobbyist. Have you trademarked it?
  10. Native French speakers don't seem to regard Canadian French very highly, FWIW. When I moved to Canada and moved to the BC interior from the UK with my standard Oxford English I had many clients who could not understand me because of my terrible accent and told my boss they didn't want to see the foreign Doctor and a Vancouver lawyer compliment me on my English which she thought was very acceptable for someone speaking it as their second language ! I'm a white male and the parent of red-headed daughters. Was it okay for one of their teacher's to tell them that 'Gingers don't have souls'? Cultural insensitivity is everywhere all the time and often as not it is based on ignorance rather than malice. We should all work hard to do better. When it occurs it is right to call it out. I see old sitcoms which make me cringe rather than laugh. We have come a long way and we have a long way to go. The older we are the more baggage we have to shed
  11. None of my instruments are valuable but their loss would be important to me. Coverage for upto $2500 costs $59.95 . $7500 costs $160. The cost is so small for even modest instruments Insurance seems a no brainer to me
  12. If you want to properly protect yourself I would strongly advise against homeowner insurance. Your deductible would likely kill your claim and the exclusions mean the cover provided is actually pretty minimal. Clarion and Hanover are both excellent companies. I use Anderson Insurance whose policies are underwritten by Hanover (I think). They have been super easy to deal with and their rates are very very good
