  1. Don't like all this finger wagging. The guy can use a honing guide if he wants, can't he? Not even in the same ball park as using sandpaper gizmos to fit bridges. Wag away for that.
  2. I wish I was as popular as a Maestronet center joint thread.
  3. Paul Simonon's Ricky https://www.christies.com/en/lot/lot-6338692
  4. I'm not going to die on "kid's violin hill".
  5. They don't provide enough tuning range with synthetic strings. I always tell 'em to use good quality steel strings with the Wittner TPs but they're always determined to use cheap synthetics.
  6. Yes, but I don't think the "normal" violin style mechanical tuners would make economic sense on the cheap student fiddles that most kids use.
  7. I think all mass produced children's violins should come with guitar style tuners.
  8. I wonder if they're followers of the low density doctrine and have kept the lighter stuff?
  9. I've never heard of this tool. What does it look like?
  10. Looks great! I didn't even look at the auction as I assumed that Florian and his buddies would keep all the good stuff for themselves. But apparently not
  11. it does, because it affects the linear density. The linear density is the volume density of the material multiplied by the cross sectional area of the string. Which depends on thickness. It really depends on what Mr B means by "unit mass". Mass per unit length or per unit volume? You'd normally use the former when talking about strings.
  12. that's accounted for in the linear density (mass per unit length, or "unit mass" as Mr B puts it)
  13. Same pitch, longer string = higher tension = higher load. Sorry if I misunderstood your meaning.
  14. You do come across as a little bit arrogant. You also seem to have a misguided view of professional orchestral musicians. Neither of these makes you a bad person. Peace and Love. As Ringo would say.
  15. Don - what do you think are the pros/cons of bowed vs impact measurements?
  16. Just what I was about to post. Flattening ribs/blocks/linings is a completely trivial task. The sort of thing I'm happy to let my 11 year old do when she asks to help out in the shop. The tendency of Maestronet to make mountains out of molehills is really something, sometimes. No disrespect intended.
  17. Hey, Francois -Nice article. How do you figure out the depth of the notch for the template you show at the end?
  18. Thank you Marty. That looks very interesting, if a little beyond my limited brain power.
  19. Don't you think that the difference between the weight of the "medium" and "resistant" tops in the Bilbao table is too small to make much of a difference?
  20. But B mode amplitudes do matter, do they not?
