  1. Right, I didn’t think to mention, If the buyer considers to ask, the seller could also measure it maybe accurately and if they’re wrong it’s free shipping both ways; EBay is good about that even on scrupulous matters. I still maintain, according to the stated reasons, my opinion that such traits are a requirement and essential for great performance.
  2. I just checked this topic and measured the stick from the picture and the thumb position diameter is significantly greater than the diameter just above the silver winding which is the way original Tourte bows were built and I’ve found is rarely imitated even by some great French makers which, if not made like this, in my opinion, the mind’s recognition of the bow hand is left measurably distracted by this disproportion; as this seems to me to be one of many attributes of Tourte bows that made them sought after.
  3. That’ll be good. The tone is 50% back and when it’s 100% it’ll be maybe quite a while before it’s restored since I need a second violin too.
  4. I screen shot it because I couldn’t transfer to photos so bad resolution , the titanic violin. Ill try to find a book. I had it in a light box enough to get it warm overnight and it has way less chatter and fat tone. I think more light box treatment and playing it will break it in.
  5. I’m thinking that if it was too wet even if it goes back to same dryness something might change it to what it was before if it’s different now.
  6. Will do, the neck projection is only 25 or 26 mm at the bridge, afterward I’ll revive this post if some want me to, it will take time to finish the work and I’m going to try to “dry it out” for my sake in non careless ways like a light box but with more outside air, etc. first.
  7. Since I started the topic already I want to see in case after the bridge is cut if it still sounds the same or I might improve it or a future violin in this or another way.
  8. Ok, I’ll really have to control myself because this is my only violin to play.
  9. Someone said to put rice directly in it and would you say putting salt directly in the violin without putting it in small cotton bags is ok? Could your method actually dry out any possible excess moisture in the innermost parts of the wood and outer parts of the wood that the varnish is worn?
  10. That’s what my mom has said ever since we were dating.
  11. Didn’t mean to sound like that about my wife, but she would kill me for my spending if I didn’t remind her of the consequences, I meant I spend money hastily on other stuff.
  12. I’m very confident in my abilities but not my overdrafts.
  13. That’s what I’ll do since I didn’t have a fan in the light box.
  14. some things. I had a violin on the porch before overnight and it got the morning dew and it sounded fat and harmonics flubbed exactly like this one and had an unusual balance while holding the neck and maybe you haven’t experienced this if you never left a violin outside overnight.
