  3. Cool many thanks for the picture
  4. I have a T20 Baroque violin. General workship is good, a few cosmetic things here and there but can't really complain for the money. The pegs are little bit slippy which is probably the worst issue. Usable as an entry level Baroque instrument.
  5. I do find these scrolls curious. @fiddlerjer do you have a picture from the front of the scroll?

  11. I think he meant he is stuck (having difficulty) with the identification of it.
  12. I'm afraid that entries to the international violin bridge competition have now closed.
