  1. I did - 194-mm. Doesn't seem like many of the early copyists were fond of GdG's 191/192-mm stop...
  2. It seems to me that the Lupot Del Gesu copy is a much more interesting thing than the Vuillaume, although I suppose it’s not as popularly appreciated.
  3. Does anyone here know the stop length on the Lupot in the Ingles & Hayday sale?
  4. This Paul Voight copy of a G.B. Ceruti viola is in the upcoming Tarisio auction. I’ve never seen ffs like this on one of the elder Ceruti's, does anyone know the viola this was copied from?
  5. I'm sorely tempted to use photoshop to show how bananas could be used to design a proper Cremonese violin for the other thread.
  6. If you called it that, I suspect a lot of people buying the book based entirely upon the title would be disappointed.
  7. I’m aware of the work that’s been done, I’m merely suggesting a public demonstration of this work using both Cremonese and non-Cremonese imitations to illustrate the validity of the theory.
  8. The only reason I suggested tracings would be so that the person analyzing the image wouldn’t be able to recognize an instrument. Perhaps there would be another way of masking cues.
  9. And that wouldn’t be entertaining?
  10. It seems to me that the easiest way to resolve whether the circle/ratio theory is correct would be to take a random selection of Cremonese instruments and later copies of Cremonese instruments, carefully copy their outlines, purfling lines, and soundhole locations, then subject the images to analysis. The Cremonese instruments should - theoretically - all correspond to circle/ratio geometry, while the copies should tend not to (obviously, the possibility exists that a traced example would coincide). It would require a bit of work, but perhaps it would put an end to the repetitious cycle we seem to have here...
  11. I think Jay Haide stuff is another apt comparison.
  12. It's paper that shows the imprint of the sieve used to strain water out of the pulp. The pattern is usually sort of a faint corrugated texture.
