  1. I was surprised to learn of this new offering from Codabow they're calling the "Marquise GS." But apparently it's not really new. They're claiming that they've been making top of the line custom bows for select private customers for years now. They've called this the "Marquise One" line. One particular custom design was favored above all others, so they've introduced that as a standard model. It's totally new news to me that they did anything like this. I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with Marquise Codabows they could share. http://www.codabow.com/the-marquise-experience http://www.sharmusic.com/Bows/Violin/Advanced-500--5K/CodaBow-Marquise-GS-Violin-Bow-4-4-Size.axd#sthash.v9FLby51.dpbs
  2. OK, so Southwest Strings had a 15% off sale and for the first time ever it applied to Codabow products. I decided to get a Diamond GX with the white "Alabaster" frog. Complete impulse buy to be sure. Just a bit over 700 bucks with free shipping. The thing is really good! I have paid a great deal more and gotten a great deal less. It bounces really well and the articulation is great. The sautille is really clean. I kind of have a routine for trying bows. It is at the very least very good for the price and a great second bow or playing outside bow. I feel a bit like I have gone of the reservation a bit but I thought you guys would like a report. The slide is even carbon so there is nothing to alarm any customs inspectors. The screw mechanism is very smooth and the finish is pretty good over all. The fit of the frog to the stick could be improved but it's ok. On my electronic scale it weighed in at 70.0 grams on the money. DLB DLB
  3. Dear Fellow Violin Makers: Every time I open My Strad magazine, I find the alarming advertisement for Luis and Clark Carbon Fiber cellos which Mr. Yo-Yo Ma says he loves. Why does this apparently innocent photo bother me so much? Is it the fact one of the world's great cellists, and probably the most popular, is sitting in the garden of an ivy league college, with penny loafers, no socks and a white shirt, exclaiming--we assume--the virtues of this cello. Of course it's defensible because it may encourage younger musicians to take up the cello at a reasonable price. I get that. I get that some may want a travel cello. I get that they may even sound good. Great for Rock musicians-ok. But is it not fair to say that Mr. Yo-Yo Ma owns part of his success to a Stradivari, classical, wooden, beautiful, hand made cello? Wouldn't it be nice to see Mr. Yo-Yo Ma exclaiming the beauty and power of a contemporary luthier's cello? So for a few dollars he endorses an instrument that probably does very little to benefit the reputation and sales of the very men and women in the contemporary world who have dedicated themselves to attempting to produce works like the Stradivari cello he actually plays. Are we in the same world Mr. Ma? The larger question may be "are the classical musicians of today really interesting in advancing the legacy of their colleagues in the world of fine instrument making.? But wait!!! It's that preppy photo that just kills me. Peter White
  4. Baroquecello, I hope you don't mind that I copied and pasted you onto the new topic.To answer your question Baroquecello, I do hear a better response in the lower strings on instruments that have had a CF rod installed but it would be a lot for me to recommend that in your situation without seeing the instrument. For example, you may have lost some of that power in the low end due to a soundpost that is too short since it's a new instrument. Also, it's not uncommon for necks that are new to lose some of their projection. A centimeter is quite a lot though. Did you have a new bridge cut? I think you possibly lost some power due to a projection drop. If you had the neck reset, I would guess that the neck is done settling and would probably hold the projection better. You asked about Burgess's solution. I'll let him expand if he likes, but I don't think he uses CF rods at all. His solution, as I understand is to put dowels through the heel of the neck. That might be over simplifying, but I do think it is pretty effective. One thing I would like to try is L shaped CF rods. I visited Jim Ham's shop in Victoria a few years ago when I was there for vacation. He had some rods made that were shaped in an L shape and the fibers were continuous. This would act sort of like Burgess's method with a rod going into the heel instead of a dowel, but also have it go up the length of the neck too. Some guitar makers will do this with two separate rods. Guitar makers tend to be much more experimental than violin makers. I would be interested to hear other opinions about carbon fiber reinforcements in the neck. Have any of you tried it? And what was your experience? Does anyone have any thoughts on the fact that it's pretty non traditional and does that bother any of you makers?
  5. Seeking carbon fiber double violin case. Will consider other material but must not exceed 5.5 pounds or 2.4 kilograms. Hima or Howard Core type. Gewa "Idea" and BAM high-tech would be fine, but need it at a much lower price. New preferred. Slightly used considered. Also have extra cases of my own for trade or partial trade. violinist@rkviolin.com
