  1. Thomastik Dominant strings are the top rating & best selling particularly suitable for old/vintage violin Dominant strings "G,D,A" are the best for the violin except E isn't working as you need for "E" string you can tray one of two different brands : 1. Goldbrokat "E" 2. jargar strings "E" medium gauge ====================================================================== there are two interesting articles : 1. (Personal Review of Strings) by the violinist : Christian Vachon ------------------------- 2. (Famous Violinist String Brand Choices) ========================================================================
  2. of course no one , i prefer to buy any modern or old "italian" instrument with certificate of authenticity from a reputable dealer only . or any master got a prize winner from italian competition of violin making , or a researcher with Scientific knowledge . would be more confidence to me instead of those mercenaries or who complaint from mania troubles .
  3. Heel
  4. what i know the dark rosin is suitable for the "gut strings" . also "Pirastro" have different rosins for there each different string set (here is the link) : by the way , in the book of "An Encyclopedia of the Violin" by : Alberto Bachmann , he mentioned something about the old rosin stuff , like they cook the pure rosin with some vinegar or so , and also mentioned something about gut strings some where else in the same book .
  5. dating Japanese violins : - Japan - A violin labeled : After WWII (1945 – 1952) , during the US occupation of Japan; items made for export were marked "Made in Occupied Japan" or perhaps "Occupied Japan" Labels with "Nippon" would be from (1891 – 1914) Labels with "Made in Nippon" would be from (1914 – 1921) Labels with "Made in Japan" would be from (1921 – present) Labels with "Occupied Japan" would be from (1945 – 1952)
  8. Liu Xi workshop / Yita music
  9. i'll choose all of them , (nice collection not so bad)
  10. my comment regarding to the topic means i'm answering the OP question So , if you have something to say about the bow would be better for you , rather to comment about my post
  11. Oh yeah , you are right my dear Jacob
  12. i know that my dear Martin , i'm one of his follower too , of course i respect him & appreciate him , but my previous post to the OP not to him
  13. the bow looks made from rosewood . this is a commercial/trade bow low quality student bow looked like a Korean or Chinese factory made & stamped later (maybe not) because the picture is not clear to me if not , so possible to be made for french workshops but if you're a happy with that bow so , nice bow too
  14. exactly you have to stop me for that mistake , you are right , that's my mistake I mixed-up , sorry for that regarding the early Füssen School history : Caspar Tieffenbrucker was born in Tiefenbruck around 1514 and died in Lyon (France) around 1570–71. In 1544 we find him in Füssen and in 1553 he is documented in Lyon (France) So that was the relation BTW , i think Martin is coming soon to punish me for that mistake then will start to fight again
