  1. I'm going to assume this one is one of those copies, since it has no label... and the interior is really rough!
  2. Can't say I've seen one of these before! Has anyone come upon something like this?
  3. Oh so not even Mittenwald? Those Markneukirchen makers were sneaky! Thank you for the help!
  4. Hey! It's been a while since I posted anything here! How's everybody doing? I got a violin in some rough shape that someone wanted me to put back together, and for the sake of my own curiosity and due diligence, I was wondering if any of the experts here think this is one of the real/good Joseph Klotz, or just the average Mittenwald fare with a Klotz label? Personally I think the whole thing is a bit too sloppy. The back is beautiful, though. Thank you!
  5. Wow, it's been ages since I've been here! How's everybody doing? I just finished another of my videos chronicling bad things that people do to their stringed instruments, so I figured I would post it here too!
  6. I haven't finished any new violins recently, keep getting bogged down with repairs and other projects, but I did finish something loosely related to violin-making: A whole bunch of gouges that should come in handy! ...and there's a video of it all, of course! https://youtu.be/A1DIkyW65D8 ...the video link seems to be acting up...
  7. Well, the weirdness continues! This week's oddity, a custom double-necked saz!
  8. Heifetz could use a banana to play and we'd never know he's not playing a Strad! The guy who owns this Stroh recorded himself playing something Carnatic/Middle-Eastern and I think it works for that. That style isn't too concerned with complex timbre and overtones... I still couldn't handle the weight.
  9. Thanks! And yes, it was fun to work on it, but I wouldn't have one myself, it's too heavy! Thanks! Ash is a sweet kitty indeed! And he's snoozing in my lap as I write this, because he's very needy and clingy.
  10. Weird things show up at the workshop from time-to-time! This time, it was a Stroh violin. So I had to make a video of it! (bonus points if you get the thumbnail reference)
  11. Well, it happened, I had to make a video of this weird thing! ...there's a sample of what it sounds like at the end if you don't want to sit through the whole refurbishing process.
  12. The entire instrument is over 980 grams.
  13. We shall find out when I'm done working on it!
