  2. Thank you for your response!
  3. Hi everyone! Who do you think made this bow? It’s stamped “Collin-Mezin“ and “Mad in France” on the other side. Curious about your opinions! Thank you!
  4. What do you guys think?? The lob is 35.4 and the label says Sanctus Seraphin 1754. Needs repair. Would love your opinions! Thank you!
  5. Dear all! Thank you for all your replies! I was able to convince Tarisio to change their attribution they did specify that it could be either haha.
  6. Hello! I was looking through the latest Tarisio auction, and came upon this violin bow, which has two certificates, one says Morizot Pére and the other Morizot Fréres. What do you guys think? Which one is it? Tarisio has it as Morizot Pére. Curious about your opinions! Bernard Millant cert says it is Fréres...
  7. Does anyone have experience buying from Vichy Auctions in France? Good or bad? Fees and shipping? Especially to U.S. Appreciate any feedback! Thank you!
  8. Hello everyone! What would you say is an acceptable violin strings height range between fingerboard and strings? 3-5 mm? E to G?
  9. Any instrument auctions coming up in September?
  10. Hi Guys! What do you think about this violin? Another German? Or could it be something more interesting? Please share your opinion!
  11. Thank you for your detailed post! Have you had a chance to look at the February Tarisio auction? Any bows or violins you got to try? Would be curious about your opinion!
  12. Would you say that, in general, his middle period bows are more of a consistent quality?
  13. To Tubbs or to bows in general? Also, would you say that 1880-1895 is his middle period?
  14. Thank you Martin! I saw that you have some nice Tubbs bows for sale!
  15. What’s your opinion of James Tubbs’ bows? I know it’s hard to tell without a particular example, but maybe general ideas about quality and value? Thank you in advance!
  16. Anyone know the price of commissioning one? Would be interesting to compare.
  17. Who are some of the best contemporary violin bow makers? Thank you in advance!
  18. Did you try the Collin Mezin père? If so, what did you think?
  19. Thank you for your detailed response! Really appreciate you sharing your knowledge. The reason I’m not considering French makers, is because, I have a great Guarneri model JBV and wanted to have something Italian as well. My Degani has a beautiful dark tone, but unfortunately, doesn’t have the power to project in a big hall with an orchestra. I have recently played on a great sounding Scarampella. It had a perfect balance of projection and tone. That’s why I was asking about them.
  20. I’m looking for something that would be an upgrade to a nice E. Degani, in terms of power and depth of sound and long term value.
  21. Who else would you add to the list of great modern Italian makers?
  22. Poggi is at 95k! Don’t they go between 150-200k$ in the shops?
