  1. Hello I have a violin in my hands which says inside Jacobus Stainer in Absam prope Oenipontum 17. Any chance to be genuine and not copy? Thanks.
  2. Anyone knows if there are recordings online with Vengerov playing on his Samuel Zygmuntovicz Kreutzer Strad copy 1727?
  3. Hey, folks! Let me preface this post by saying I'm not naive enough to think this is an actual Guadagnigni. Aside from the obvious characteristics that set it apart from the real McCoy (violin fingerboard stained to look like ebony and quality not on par with the true article), Guadagnini wasn't in Milan in 1784-- he was in Turin. I bought this primarily as a wall-hanger, but I'm curious as to it's origin and provenance (if any). I'd greatly appreciate any help you could offer in identifying this fiddle! Thanks in advance.
  4. A friend was kind enough to share some images of one of Nicolas Sawicki's early dG copies - made after Sawicki worked on il Cannone for Paganini. It is evidently thickly graduated, which I understand is pretty unusual for an early copy:
  5. I was looking closely at my mother's old violin today, and realized that something I'd always considered to be damage on the top actually looks like writing, perhaps by some method of engraving or stamp. It just looks too "regular" to be simply damage. I'm attaching a picture and wonder if anyone out there has seen similar. I cannot make out what it says.
  6. Hi All - first time poster. I have recently purchased several nice quality instruments from a local deceased estate. Including several violins. One of them is an 1890 Hawkes & Son. "The Professor Violin" in pretty good condition. One of the others (pictured below) has an old looking label inside which reads: GIOVAN PAULO MAGGINI BRESCIA 1686 Obviously this is not a real Maggini, but it is oldish. Judging by the age of the cases and other violins I got, I am guessing late 19th century. So my question is, given it is a fake, but still a hundred or so yea
  7. I have a 4/4 violin with a label that reads, "Joh.Bapt.Schweitzer fecit ad forman Antonii Stradiuarii Pestini 18__" ~ it is dark brown in color and looks very old. It also has a very skinny neck. I can't upload pictures/don't know how - and i know the lack of pictures make it hard to really tell anything but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was told that it has a $5000 value but I personally would like to know if it is real or a copy
  8. One of my good friends in my local orchestra owns a viola made by Carlo Bisiach, circa 1947. We are almost certain that this is a copy but are wondering where it comes from and how much it is most likely worth. He was given it by an old teacher who he has since lost contact with. The sound is clear, warm, and quite responsive, despite its false strings. Our nearest luthier is a good hour drive away, so before we get it appraised we were curious as to what maestronet would have to say. Pictures (there are 5 of them):,vwEI9zc,MSS0Yte,L5j7ZLL,vvHXnn7#0
  9. Hi, This is the 'old' violin whose odd looking bridge and finer tuner were posted in the following thread I am looking for more info regarding this violin. The scroll was very well grafted. I had to look at it carefully to believe it is an acutal graft, not hand drawn. However, most of the seemmingly cracks on the violin are hand drawn black lines. There is one actual crack on the right top F hole. I am guessing this violin is made around 1850's in the Bohem
  10. I also posted this at, so if you responded there, you don't need to here as well. I know this is a "copy" instrument, but does anyone have any idea as to what model or maker it most closely resembles? Small image: Large image
  11. Before I started this topic, I've exhausted all my skills by searching all the resources that were available to me, especially Maestronet, but I have not found an answer. So: I've seen an ad in which the seller offers a violin on which he knew nothing except that owned by his family for about 40 years. As a rookie here, I am unable to use Gallery, then - here are some pictures, copy-paste from ad: Everything I've found: "SCHWARTZMANN, Anton Worked circa. 1750 Mittenwald Germany. Musician and luthier. Few instruments recorded. Anton Schwartzmann musi- / kant und Geigenm
  12. Hi there. Ive been trying to find out a bit more about the Imperial line of violins. From what I could find, there are 2 different lines of these. One being German, and one being Japanese. Imperial violins have the flat shield-shaped piece of wood on the back of the scroll, with the words Imperial Violin written on. My question is, how do you tell the 2 types apart? How do I know if it is German, or Japanese. Ive seen a few pictures online, found about 3-4 Imperial Violins on Ebay in about 2 years, but I cannot seem to find anything consistant to it. A friend of mine has a Im
  13. Hi all, I recently found out that one of my violin bows is very old, French, and rather valuable. It's labelled "E. SARTORY A PARIS" but I'm assured, by the people who are currently looking for buyers for me, that it's a decent quality copy, and not an authentic Sartory. It has also been fully restored prior to sale. The best offer they've had so far is £3500; they also said that if I were to try to sell it at auction I'd be likely to get half that at best. So I'm fairly happy with that, given that, in my few hours of research I found that most authentic Sartory's sell for something like
