  1. Dear community,

    I have this violin which I would love to hear your thoughts about.

    Also, could you please tell me what could be the white glue used for glueing the neck?

    Many thanks!

    The question regarding the butt crack is if it is just glued (what’s a not very reliable repair) or bushed or secured with a “buried” ring, which are the more adequate methods. With a bit of effort such cracks can be made nearly invisible and would be then less affecting the value.

    Thank you very much for your advice. Looked up the methods of repair you mentioned. Will see if I can get it repaired properly!

  3. @fiddlecollector  Thank you for pointing this out. I took more photos of this particular spot. To me, it looks like a dent / scratch as it doesn’t run parallel to the grain. Do you agree?

     

    Another place where there is definitely a repaired crack, is between the mortise and the adjuster. Does that devalue bow by much?

     

    Could you please confirm if the wood is pernambuco and if the lapping is silver or tinsel? From closer inspection it looks wound, more like tinsel. I am thinking of replacing it with silver if that is so.

     

    The current balance point measured from the end of adjuster is about 10” or 25.5cm. Not sure if that is the correct way to measure it. Do you think it would positively or negatively affect the balance if the lapping would be replaced to silver?

     

    Many thanks again!

  4. I understand that it will likely not be identifiable, but I would love to hear your thoughts on the quality of materials and workmanship.

    The bow is 74cm long and it weighs 55g. Seems to be fully silver mounted. Adjuster has no pins. Octagonal part of the round stick extends beyond the (silver?) lapping.

    Many thanks!

  5. I would be grateful if you could share your thoughts on what you see here. If I should take photos from better angles, more up-close shots of any parts, please let me know.

     

    I can see both lower and upper corner blocks and, I think, through neck.
