  1. And if you heat from 20°C to 80°C, what kind of pressure do you get? Of course it gets relevant (even if simplified), as you need to surpase the atmospheric pressure (or in this case the significant higher one) for vaporation. Of course you are right about the cooker and the radiation. The point is, that the standard assumptions done for the relativ humidity fail here.
  2. (p×V)/T = n R Start from there and you will see in an air tight system (I have no idea if those cases actually are) the relativ humidity can increase with the temperatur rising. Of course this is not true for open systems.
  3. Assuming it is what the label tells, its one of the category VII, today called Master, which are available at around $4000 when purchased new. I would not go for the risk to buy a label in a different violin (those scratches could be caused in the attempt to remove it) in this case. It is not one of the instruments he made himself but a workshop violin, already cleated. Why spent the same with all the risk and not being able to play before? Oh, and this guy should have a look at Fiorillos score again, this was not only shortend but even played with many wrong notes.
  4. I know a luthier (Hodap senior, forgot the surname) going beyond a milimeter. I always felt this beeing nice for left hand pizz but bad for the general playing.
  5. The evah a is very high tension and thin, also hard. This does have a major influence.
  6. Not only enough but the right amount. To much pressure kills the sound too.
  7. Your fingers simply damp the strings. Its common to a certain point. Try to curve your fingers adequatly.
  8. There are a lot of violins that are a kind of soft copy, accurate outlines but archings, scroll and varnish planed by the luthier building it. Of course one could argue if those are copys or not.
  9. No long weekend in Germany Looks like the floor in my living room. This guy would have loved CF.
  10. I do appreciate this. I had my Gütter with great setup at a luthier that changed the soundpost position to "normal" and adjusted the post. Never sounded the same later on...
  11. As a player I like to have those information. For example I can tell one of my violins beeing a Guarneri copy but still cant decide between ill cannone and Ysay to be the model.
  12. Do you commenly use the Guseto model?
  13. I wondered the same. Very poor people loosing their money. They dont get it back from him beeing in jail.
  14. To me it feels like he is a baroque violinist playing a modern viola/bow. I sometimes got the feeling he looses bow control on purpos to get a specific sound as it happens on different easy parts of similar interpretation. He did not hit the common way at all and not my taste but he made a lot of unconvinient own decissions, I do respect this as choices of an artist and would actually love to have a face to face disscussion with him. I am sure he would tell interesting stuff. That viola btw did not impress me, I agree that it sounds like a big violin. I think the art of viola playing is blured by all the violinist doing so. Of course another problem is that a lot of componists understood it as third violin section or some kind of semi cello. The viola is an instrument on its own and I would never dare to say I can play it just because I can play the violin and can readthe cleff.
  15. I dont like the colour either, but I remembered it when you asekd for the cf thing. Any conclusions? Do you plan to do it again?
  16. http://www.pavelsporcl.com/bce-5/BLUE-VIOLIN.html Cf on this one.
  17. Thats right. I have to add though that Oliver Radke makes fine sounding and well responsive violins (looks are not really what impressed me). I played a 4 violins made by him and they were consistently good. Just to clearify its not against him.
  18. I think it was partly titanium, partly carbon. In total the violin neck was lighter than usual, I think he lost weight on the scroll too. It was 2012 I saw those, I cannot remember it in all details anymore, but I remember that it was no option to me to have such a violin.
  19. I strongly agree on this one! Insert other media
