  1. I recall seeing similar f-hole "edging" on violins labelled Joseph Bohmann.
  2. From the first picture, my immediate impression was a Roth Guarneri copy.
  3. $3,000 for a CASE??? Uhhhhhh...no, thanks.
  4. Musician reports 1758 violin stolen from South Loop home "Three musical instruments including a 1758 violin were stolen from a town home in the South Loop Wednesday morning while a family of musicians was sleeping..... ...A second violin stolen in the burglary was made by Oliver Radke in the late 1990s, Xu said, and a half-size cello belonging to her son also is missing.... ...According to surveillance cameras in her neighbor’s garage, the suspect entered her house around 3:45 a.m. while the family was sleeping after being able to open Xu’s closed car and clicking the garage button inside the car. The family didn’t realize someone had been inside their home until 4:37 a.m. when one of their alarms activated... ...The loaned violin, which is insured, has a sentimental value bigger than its price, Xu said." So let me get this straight, this evidently ONE person manages to enter the house by using the garage door opener in the car, wanders around for an hour before tripping an alarm, then makes off ONLY with THREE musical instruments, including a kid's cello? And, needless to say, the expensive LOANED instrument was insured? I dunno but my "spidey sense" were tinging a bit reading this.
  5. Nice presentation: THE ART OF HENRI TEMIANKA: VIRTUOSO VIOLINIST, CONDUCTOR, AUTHOR, EDUCATOR presented by John Haley

  8. I'd venture to bet a considerable wad of dough.
  9. Have you tried to buy a used car recently? In 2019 I paid $49,000 for a Jeep Rubicon. Put six thousand miles on it and sold it to a dealer, no less, in January for $53,000.

  11. If Maestronet weren't free, I'd be demanding a refund about now.
  12. Sorry, I copied the wrong link. The one for 190 proof is: https://www.caskers.com/everclear-190-proof/ It is still available for delivery to California. It's 28 bucks for 750 mls (about 3/4 quart).
  13. You can buy Everclear online and have it delivered in California: https://www.caskers.com/everclear-151-proof/
  14. Stumbled across this: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jim-Woodhouse/publication/237124417_Of_old_wood_and_varnish_Peering_into_the_can_of_worms/links/0deec5256a2f30112d000000/Of-old-wood-and-varnish-Peering-into-the-can-of-worms.pdf
