  1. Martin really you are a wonderful expert . thanks for clarification my dear friend
  2. that's right boss that's looked like a psychiatrist clinic to me , I appreciate that , thanks for your recommendation , i'm going to buy that book soon , BTW the OP ask a simple a question "Violin or viola transitional bow?" straight question with direct answer please ?
  3. to me if there is advertising mentioned "VIOLIN OR VIOLA BOW" , that is a game for sure to pay your attention , that is a viola-bow , looks thicker stick & round bow frog . i know there is some one disagree with me , but that's a wrong opinion i guess
  4. as you like , but that exception to me is out of rule as per the bow-maker improvisation , to me that is breaking of the common design , So, the maker wants to build his or her name by foolishness to reach the greatest old masters by his/her wrong concept . the improvement must come with a new idea not by exchanging the viola frog to violin frog , so i'd like the classic & scientific work as per tradition of school , i hate the funky works . to me this is a violin bow , go back to the history of the frog from baroque era into contemporary days through the transitional period , the viola frog (heel side) is rounded & regarding to the violin frog is square that is familiar/popular to the bow working field . i know the frog whether rounded heel or square both things are found in opposite direction , that IMHO depending on a custom made just for satisfaction for there desired , or by DIY at home , so no more explanation to me than that . but if you and some others disagree with me , I made my statement with proof in my opinion that is a "violin-bow" as per logical analysis length of the stick + the weight of the bow is very light + the frog design) my proof is : 1. length of the stick . 2. the weight of the bow is little bit lighter than viola-bow which is heavier & a quiet thicker . 3. the frog design (square shape) not rounded as other bows . if that is not clear to you & for others , and you believe that bow is a "Viola-Bow" , So as you wish . the OP ask a straightforward question , so you can answer the OP whether it's a violin or viola bow . Regards.
  5. as a general rule your bow is a violin bow for sure , because the frog is square shape not round like a viola frog , but every rule has an exceptional , however , there are 2 examples for violin and viola bows :- 1- Violin Bow --------------------- 2- Viola Bow ============================= here is a nice link ; http://www.alterbows.com/bows.html
  6. i'm still learning my friend , i learned so many good information from you & Jacob as well blank Face too . i know you deserve better . Anyway sorry for disturbing you Boss

  9. here is a piano branded Longman and Broderip , similar to your label
  10. LONGMAN, James Worked circa. 1767-1798 London UK. Founder of Longman & Co., a company of music dealers for whom many of the leading London violin makers worked in the late 18th century. His brand is frequently found on London trade instruments of the Stainer or Amati type. Longman first appears at the ‘Harp & Crown’, 26 Cheapside, formerly the premises of John Johnson. Joined by Lukey 1769, the title was changed to Longman Lukey & Co., moving to St Paul’s Churchyard briefly in 1771, while the Cheapside shop was renovated. In 1775 Robert Broderip (Born 1750) became a partner, and the business was retitled Longman, Lukey & Broderip. The following year Lukey departed, and the title changed http://www.amati.com/maker/longman-james/ ------------------------------------- example : English violin by Longman & Broderip , from Brompton's Auctioneers https://www.bromptons.co/reference/photography/details/violin-by-longman-and-broderip-english.html Close
  11. you need a "Humidifier" to control the moisture level .
  12. as you know the violin-bow is a lighter weight & longer length . the bow length is suitable for that era as a full size violin-bow , as well as bow weight too . compare that with a viola or cello-bow which is "heavier, thicker, but shorter" than the violin bow "IMHO"

    Royal Ebony

    I have no idea about "Royal Ebony" like that , there is a less density "White Ebony" looked pretty nice color (black & White) http://www.wood-database.com/black-and-white-ebony/
  14. hahahaha . nice recommendation thanks Martin
  15. there are not much makers in Bordeaux , there are few makers in middle 18th. century to early 19th. century , maybe not more than 3 makers , such as : 1. FEYZEAU, Bordeaux, 1740 to 1770. 2. GAVINIES, FRANCOIS, Bordeaux, Paris, b. about 1700, d. abut 1770. 3. SAUNIER, EDMOND, Bordeaux, Paris, b. about 1730, d. after 1783. =============================================== violin bows unlike violins which are normally either made by a particular maker and labelled or branded as such or are workshop instruments which are also often labelled as being “of the atelier” or “finished and sold by”, bows are much more complicated. A large percentage of bows made by a particular maker will carry the brand of someone else. Sometimes this brand will be of another bow maker but more often than not it will be a violin maker, a dealer or sometimes a fictitious model name . https://www.westcountryviolins.com/bow-information.html ========================================================= for example : a violin-bow branded : "Bordeaux" , made by Marc Laberte , how's born 1880 & died 1963 Mirecourt France So, better if you add some pictures would be better for identification
  16. what is the wonderful information about the history , every time i learn a nice information particularly from you & others .
  17. BTW , Emanuel Hüller is a "(Firm/workshop) as brand name , not a real name "fictitious name" in Graslitz , Bohemia
  18. there're thousands of trade instrument that were made in Markneukirchen and Czechoslovakia circa 1880 to 1900. Often with a green-brown varnish and fake cracks as well as a fake neck graft. A good number of these fakes have fake repair labels

  20. these characteristics of Nicolas Chappuy school
  21. in brief , for a good violin collection : 1. good craftsmanship (of course with a good selection of materials too ). 2. good condition . 3. good sound as well . Note : with a "certificate of authenticity" from a reputable dealer .
  22. any solution "in chemical terms" , means dissolving particles into other , the result status = (solution of ... ) for example : 1. solution of salt ,means mix a particular weight of salt into the water 2. solution of sugar ,means mix a particular weight of suger into the water btw , the water is also solution of H2O the measurements (Molar concentration) "mol/cm3" or "mol/L" i rember from my study in high school that was in (1992) , the mole = 40 litters of water , you can use full , half , or quarter amount of water etc. ... , and desolve on that amount your sugar or any thing else . not nessesary a water , you can use any other liqued or oil .... ======================== now : just mix 2 or 3 tablespoon of sugar in a cup of water , that's it =========================== for --> highly concentration of sugar dissolve more sugar as much as you can in a glass of water and stir until the rest of sugar dissolve , if there is a remaining sugar cannot dissolve ,so in that point they call it "Saturated solution" , then you can heat your solution to dissolve the rest of that sugar .
