  1. Dear experts, this supposedly 140 year old french violin is for sale on public auction. is it of any interest ? thanks in advance for your thought best
  2. it was not bought on ebay. I did not know the expression "a dog dinner" but this does not sound very positive ;-) My daughter played it before it was rehaired. The hair was in a poor shape.
  3. Thank you Blanck Face. All this is very plausible. What is funny is that I kind of liked the fittings. Fititngs in good shape was a selling point.
  4. Hi folks, I recently acquired a bow that I like. It's a bit early to be sure about the tonal quality since it arrived at home... today after rehairing. There is a label which is probably fake (I guess), but still worth noting : F.N. VOIRIN. The seller did not sell it as an authentic Voirin, just to make it clear. However, it's sold as a (good) pernambuco bow with high quaity fittings. I just took a few pictures of the bow. So any feedback would be very much appreciated. N.B : bow weighs exactly 60g
  5. the seller : "Hi, "Français" here refers to Emile Français, who was a well known Parisian luthier in the middle part of 20th century. The violin is not French, more likely of German origin. And 18th century..."
  6. The guy who sold the case (maybe he 's the maker too, not sure) is named Emile (first name) Francais (last name).
  7. Hi again folks, here is a bow from supposedly Lothar Seifert. It does not look really nice to me. The wood quality seems pretty poor to me any opinion ?
  8. thanks guys. I'll inform the owner who is truly believing that he had a (badly sounding) gem.
  9. Hi guys, Here are a few pics. What do you think about this supposedly french violin ? FYI, I do not intend to buy it, this is just for education purposes. cheers
  10. lots of good reason not to buy this bow
  11. any opinion of the restored (see the head) Prefretzschner

    violin bow

    I guess that they are tons of suitable bows. As I mentioned, she does not feel confident enough to decide. I guess that it is related to the price. She does no want to make the wrong choice.

    violin bow

    This is clearly the point. She has been seing her violin teacher via ZOOM only in the last 4 months... and I do not know when they 'll meet again face to face.

    violin bow

    She tried a few bows at luthiers here in Paris. It wasn't really conclusive. She was unsure. I had an opinion about the sound quality, but it was not her opinion... so pointless.

    violin bow

    Hi Guys, i'm now after a good bow. Brand new ones are kind of out of reach for me. The old french bow willbe sold (auction) in Paris soon. what do you guys think. signed twice by Christophe C.H.R SCHAEFFER made out of pernambuco weight 61.4 g seems pretty interesting to me but I may be wrong. 164809_956726868_c6aaf4d4f96089d2f347918f48607c61.jfif 164809_557499164_ed6dd3db8893514060504e16c04674f2.jfif 164809_57704530_6dd887b8470b083ada1cb9fb375d6e4d.jfif 164808_482976654_1f4d866346cec3d8d629476e59118923.jfif 164808_356819483_667bbf28b6f07e650aada41217250c37.jfif
  21. dpappas, my 2 cents. the chinrest and tailpiece seem not to belong to the instrument. The color match seems a bit weird.
