  1. Thanks for the information, good to know the reality instead of speculation.
  2. So have either of you measured the string spacings on Mr Perlman's fiddles?
  3. Gidon Kremer-- Bach <iframe width="763" height="420" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RrCaXtE1J0o" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  4. What is the thickness of the top of the bridge? It looks chunkier than most.
  5. Not satire: they have a deep love and respect for American 'roots' music.
  6. WRONG! He was clearly happy to reminisce about it: http://frobbi.org/slides/berline-rr/index.html
  7. I'd be curious to try using persimmon (same genus as ebony: Diospyros).
  8. I think maybe you are referring to Maclura pomifera, or osage orange? I made a nut for one of my fiddles a few years ago out of this wood, and it seems to be holding up well. But the grain was relatively coarse, so not so easy to get a nice smooth surface.
  9. Another video of Beiliang Zhu, including a performance of Bach's *violin* partita in d minor on the cello (yes, including the chaconne!):
  10. The thread you posted to is from the year 2013.
  11. Yes to the first: Mersenne did experiments using weights (and from these experiments derived his laws relating frequency to mass per unit length, tensile force, and string length). Leopold Mozart , in his Violinschule, described verifying that adjacent strings would sound at a fifth when tensioned using equal weights. He was dismissive about players and makers who would trust their eyes to determine string gauges.
  12. 2 hours ago, gowan said: In fact Bach approved of the pianos made by Gottfried Silbermann.
