  1. Thanks for the advice, guys.
  2. I was wondering if it might be not Markneukirchen because pretty flat arching, but I guess that's still pretty standard-looking, huh?
  3. Here's a pretty thing I just set up. Sounds quite nice! Any insight on origins/history?
  4. I found this one in the rental inventory. I set it up, and it sounds pretty great (the local pros like it). But I can't find anything about the maker, other than this post which doesn't help much. Anyone know more about this maker--age, value, etc? Markneukirchener ware or an actual maker? Thanks for the advice.
  5. Still getting error code -200 on the pics. Hopefully soon I can post pics. Thanks for the info! Any resources on how to research violin identification, generally?
  6. I know pretty much nothing about this instrument. It was in the customer's family for several generations. The pics should explain the rest. https://photos.app.goo.gl/cQhSu5EoEW6kKECJ6 I'm too new to attach pics, but google photos won't give your computer cancer. Could someone direct me to an online resource for learning how to ID violins? Is there any good reading on the subject out there online? I learn lots here on Maestronet, but there's a lot of picking through old conversations for the best results. Thanks for your help!
  7. Wow! Great work! I'm adding this to my repertoire. What are the specs on those magnets? And where do you find the nylon screws?
  8. The customer opted to leave it as it was. It had been that way for years, and he didn't want to spend the money. I figured it was pretty stable anyway, being about as reinforced as possible, though (I suppose) held open by the shrunken linen. So we'll never know for sure. Thanks for the input. BTW, I would have put it back with just linen, no veneer. Do any of you guys like veneer patches on ribs? Seems like adding mass and no stronger than the linen, but maybe I'm missing something.
  9. Hi all, I have a cello with linen-reinforced ribs. It looks as though the linen was added during a repair, because there are multiple veneer patches beneath the linen. I got the cello in for repair of a rib crack that was obviously moving (the long one in the picture). But now I see that it is under a veneer patch and linen. My instinct is to remove the linen and veneer, glue the crack, and reinforce with linen. So what's the best way to remove the linen and veneer? Is there a better way to go about this? Thanks
