  1. FWIW. If folks are experimenting with Kaolin, just thought I would point out that it's a very broad term. If you visited a ceramic supplier there would be a range of kaolins with different properties, fineness, particle size. From domestic to English Grolleg... Calcined would behave very differently as it is fired, sintered..... Don't know anything about how it's being used here, but might be worth the investigation...
  2. My daughters is 1908 and has pencil. somehow I had picked up the idea all were, thanks for the correction!
  3. The hand written signature should be in pencil, at least in earlier ones...I think. Hard to tell from your pic....
  4. As a parent, they have provided the 13 yr old through her early years a cultural sense of importance and belonging with the violin. We live pretty rurally, none of her friends has any idea of what she does. I think their violins are by an American maker, but can't find the video right now.... So TwoSet's humor and accessibility have been useful and supportive, and I think that is true for a generation on violinists.
  5. Daughter played a violin by this maker, name seems suss but a couple sales on Tarisio. Just wondered if anyone had heard of this maker and his violins.

    cold violin

    It seems fine. Thanks all. Scattered parental syndrome- play practice dinner violin and a work deadline......I guess this violin has made it through 113 years probably not a first for it.:)

    cold violin

    Just discovered daughters violin was left by accident in quite cold last night. Still in case- We have not opened the case to let it come to temp more slowly. Any other advice and what are the risks.......
  8. Certainly during COVID she has been incredibly active, working with youth orchestras across the US. My daughter was able to play with her and for her, an amazing experience and opportunity! She's an incredible humanitarian along with her obvious musical gifts.
  9. She played with the New Mexico Phil last weekend..
  10. It seems like SHAR would have some services? Or be able to recommend someone in the area?
  11. We have enough info to clarify things. Very grateful for generous assistance always found here. Would love to hear a continued discussion of splined bows here, as it's very educational.
  12. I feel like I should not post a pic online, since we are just looking at it, not our property.
  13. I meant gauranteed value wise or to be repaired...... Does that really happen regularly? I have read here that the spline is as strong as the original? Just for info, not arguing. Good info, thanks all.
  14. Thanks, I was hoping you might chime in. What is the value range for these at full price? I understand there are many different makers.... If this one is marked they did not say.
