  1. My second fiddle was also a Juzek from the 30s, and I loved it to death! I will say that there is a variety of tones and colors under that sticker, I have found, unlike a lot of modern factory productions (this is a whopping generalization, but hey) I hope you get back to playing!
  2. I love these guys, and have been in the market for a good five string for a while...
  3. ok that is gold right there. gold. I have a good relationship with reidl
  4. That IS a good idea.. I have visited all the shops in nashville and this is THE shop for bows. and I know the "bow person" on a personal/out-of-shop-professional way... Thanks!!
  5. Haha! thanks... so so many options
  6. I am now on the bow hunt, and I would really appreciate some tips and tricks for getting the most out my time amongst hundreds of bows, and what checkpoints to keep in mind as well. I've never done this before as I've always bought fiddler man carbon fiber... those had served me well, but I feel it is holding me slightly back, and I just graduated... Edit: I am playing quite a few bows in and out of my price range at the shop. Thanks all, Flatt
  7. Does not quite being able to sleep and getting back up at 1:00am to play as quietly as possible count?
  8. it is strange.. I never had that trouble, even switching to a viola or even a 5 string violin. it never occurred to me that it needed to be disorienting, but maybe it comes from playing multiple instruments and even different violins in my genesis...
  9. I love my 7/8s violin, But I also Love my full size... I believe that it is impossible to love just one, because, just like people, they come with so many different personalities so you can love them in so many different ways. My solution to this one has been "never limit yourself to just one violin". I also find that some days I'm more in the mood for the 7/8s than full size and vice versa. However, I'd say travel around if none of the violins at the local shop suit you, because, of course, the more broad the selection, the more likely you are to find that love of your life. As for setup and strings, most shops will have set up the violins to bring out their best traits, and likewise with the strings. So if you like a violin enough to buy it, then swapping strings will probably be more of a personal taste issue I don't think I could ever sell the violin I currently play, but I may surprise myself one day. I will most likely just add to my collection. P.S I just switched from evah greens to Warchal Ambers on my main violin and I am loving them
  10. I can only imagine! i would love to see/hear the finished product
  11. very pretty for a fractional pure eye candy
  12. preferably in my lap. big baby Belgian Malinois.
  13. I will have to remember that... I really am. Demayomeister and I are very similar in very many ways, and so we are good friends which helps a lot plus his Italian mafia accent makes for some great jokes
  14. we will take the blocks themselves down. the mould just gives me the general shape. speaking of blocks, I have an end block and saddle crack, and rib shortening repair going simultaneously on the same violin... fun times
