  1. Thank you for the answers! Very enlightening! What about the violin's age? What do you think?
  2. Another one from my collection. This is, or i think it is, if the label is not fake, a Johann Cristoph Leidolff violin. First i must say it very rich in overtones and has great projection, i like it very much. I was wondering if the cracks that you see in the pictures are a dangerous or can i let them just "exist" and if i should change my chinrest beacause both of the feet of the chinrest have a crack under them. Also the peg (end button) is somewhat tilted towards the tailpiece, being pulled by it. Is this a problem? And i think there is a "crack" (looks more like a splinter), on the back, around where the soundpost is but not underneath it, and inside i can't see any problems so maybe it is just an aestetic matter, what do you think? I also included some pictures of the corners, beacause Mister/Lord Jacobsaunders, if i remember corectly, said in a thread that Leidolff Instruments have " dead pig's noses", but there where no pictures. Thank you for your help.
  3. Hi again! Is this crack dangerous? Should i get it fixed right away? The soundpost is fallen, also, but the violin is not under tension.
  4. Hi! It might be, but it is clear to me that it is a great maker. You know, you can lie with a varnish, a scroll, but you can never lie with sound. Also sorry for not giving names for my techers or the Strad, i am triyng to be as discrete as possible, so as to not upset my teachers.
  5. Hi! I have a great sounding violin and i want to tell you it's story. I bought it for not very much. It is my love and passion. When i went to a masterclass with a great master, i do not know if he is ok with me telling his name, he played my violin and he said it sound much better than a 40000 dollars violin that another pupil had at that masterclass, a violin that had a certificate for that sum. I went to a very good luthier in Brussels and he told me the construction is very good but that he does not recognize where it was made or by who. He than worked on it an it sound much much better than when i had the masterclass. My teacher now, no names given but he plays on a Strad, said it sounds excelent. So with that said, what do you think? Who and where made it? Thank you very much Maestronet! Also sorry, english is not my first language, please excuse any mistakes.
  6. Do you think it is worth going to the luthier and repairing it? What do you belive it should cost me and what do you think it is worth repaired? Also i want to tell you it has light construction. Compared to two other bohemian violins i own, it is very light. Do you think it will have good sound?
  7. Another one from the collection! What can you tell me about this violin? Came in an 19th century wooden violin case. I think the violin is much older, tho. Any idea of the possible maker? Also, i se that the f-hole is changed, why is that? Thank you, Maestronet!
  8. Thank you! What about the label? Anithing to make out or is it a waste of time triyng?
  9. Hi, do you know what violin is this? Why is it signed inside, aside from the label ( the label is mostly worn off, and it says 1729, the signature, dated 1967, maybe is from a luthier). Do you recognize the label or the signature. Also sorry for any mistakes, english is not my first language. Thank you for your help!
