  1. Trust me, i know what i'm doing
  2. Ok thanks, that makes sense indeed ..
  3. I think i saw some videos on YouTube, will have a look ..
  4. Ah, good idea, or maybe even baking baper for better resistance against burning..
  5. So a little less heat, wetting only the outside a bit and using a strap should do the trick
  6. Well, maybe only the corners .. I can go further up the pipe where it is less hot, but that does not bend well sometimes ..it's a fine line between bending and scorching it seems. I also do not use a wrap, maybe that will help. Craig Tucker used a cold bending method, here is a older topic from 2004:
  7. David, i tend to get visible scorching in the narrow bends of the C bouts. Not wetting the inside of the bends would probably make things worse. I use a metal pipe and heatgun as i dont have a bending iron yet. Do you have any tips to prevent scorching?
  8. I've seen DG's with that too .. and ehh.. mine as well
  9. Sofar i mainly depended on M5's to get a stiffness / weight ratio for the plates in the 'normal range'. Overtones are sort of a 'by-product'.... Body modes don't seem to mean all that much as far as i can tell, except that a stronger CBR seems to support the lower D-string notes in 1st position (as you wrote earlier somewhere, the D can be weak) . Anyways, more fog ahead! That's a cool graph Marty. The lower notes are clearly quite complex, but the highest D# looks very clean with almost no overtones. The open D does not have a strong fundamental it seems?
  10. Looking at modes and frequency graphs (as i do too) sometimes feels a bit like looking at a harddisk under a microscope to see what information there is When i hear players talk about violins, it's often more about response and playability, with which they can create the sound (color) they want, so the balance of overtones to their liking
  11. Yes, well you better talk to the guy who started this discussion Andreas still very interesting stuff sofar, however a bit abstract and difficult to translate to actual sound, let alone how to get there ..maybe one day..
  12. Ok thanks Eric, so worst thing that could happen is that the board will not arrive.. i mean nog additinal fines or jail time How many sticks does one board make? And do you know the density and Lucchi of the boards?
  13. Hi Eric, would sending some of the pernambuco blanks to the Netherlands be possible with the papers you have?
  14. A little unintended asymmetry can be a good thing in a violin i read ..
