  5. Scoop on baroque fingerboards?

    Thanks for the replies; very informative link and some interesting thoughts. I'm still feeling a bit in the dark as to any historical evidence for the early makers employing scoop.

  7. Scoop on baroque fingerboards?

    Hello Maestros, The recent thread on a Strad viola with original neck and fittings led me to wonder if the baroque period makers put a scoop in their fingerboards. --Bill

    Here's a response from James Buchanan of Amati: "We know! It’s not a problem our side - it’s down to Mark’s IT man, but we shall get in touch again today to try and get it sorted."

  11. Brescian working methods

    Oliver Webber convincingly argues against the notion that baroque violins were strung at a lower tension than modern violins in this article: http://www.themonteverdiviolins.org/strings.html
  12. I'm taking the plunge

    I just want to thank jacobsaunders for this advice: 'Fold up a paper kitchen towel, and make it wet. Put this on the whole part where the top block was and cover the wet kitchen towel with cling-film (that it doesn't dry out) stand the violin somewhere in a corner, with the scroll pointing downwards go away and do something else next day after breakfast, go and look at it. Almost as lightly as not, it will have fallen to bits on its own see if you can wiggle the neck off the nails (rather than the nails out of the button) If it doesn't work straight away, just re-wet the kitchen towel, and repeat.' Seemingly, everywhere else one is given the instruction to attack the neck/body join with a saw. In my view, Jacob's approach would appear to be less destructive. By using the wet kitchen towel method I was able to remove the neck from a cheap Chinese fiddle that I am reworking (no nails in this neck, by the way) with no loss of wood in the neck.
