  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. Well, the weirdness continues! This week's oddity, a custom double-necked saz!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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)
  7. 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.
  8. The entire instrument is over 980 grams.
  9. We shall find out when I'm done working on it!
  10. Juuust a little bit, yeah. Yeah, that's what my research has shown. Weird little thing it is!
  11. Hey folks! Every now and then something weird shows up at the shop, and here is the latest one: a 'Stroh violin'! Isn't it gloriously steampunk? The design seems to be pretty similar to some sold here by a company called 'Lark in the Morning', except the tag on the top is not like theirs, this one's tag seems to have some ...Burmese writing I think? Can anyone read it? Also this one has machine tuners (which I suspect aren't original). Has anyone seen one of these before?
  12. Hi! Welcome! And your violin looks very pretty! What does it sound like?
