Was anyone else invited to try this Beta? I can't imagine the program is as accurate as, say, the pre-eminent Mr. Saunders... Some time ago, Tarisio announced plans to farm their own sheep to make gut strings, and we know how that turned out. So I w ould be interested in hearing about others' experiences with this new tool. :-D (I don't have any unidentified violins at the moment.) OK, maybe I am a little jealous that Philip KT offered to go to Austria and meet with Jacob to study, before I thought to publicly disclose my secret plan...
http://elitedaily.com/humor/girl-reacts-broken-violin-bow/1420288/ Another reason not to buy cheap imported violins and bows ( I am guessing). More harm than good? Here's the video in all it's glory: https://youtu.be/8lmfsTSYVJ8

Violin ID: Can someone tell me where (Italian) Craig mona is?
l33tplaya posted a topic in The PegboxI can't place the f holes. Wonderful Sound, Strange Shape. At about 4:58 the video below it is side splitting funny. According to the blurb, there is a whole area of violin history of which I was unaware. Q for MNrs: I have not seen any of Nicholas Marty's (short for Martiin ?) instruments for sale or at auction. Is he related to Mr. Swan ? Are there any of Marty's instruments around? Still worth playing? Who was Antonio Stella bottom tile? I fear I still have much to learn... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adkWiJA9xR0 Here's the extended, second video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adkWiJA9xR0 There's a sound clip at the end of the violin playing. Apparently Ashens reviews toy products sent to him. And the luthier for this VSO used a Chinese copy of google translate? Which wasn't working very well? The kid on the cover does need to work on his bow grip, however - his/hers is neither Russian nor FB. Jacob: No chance this violin is from MKN, I believe. Wrong fluting, and no purfling. I think this violin would be perfect for bassclef.
Super Glue Horror Stories
Evan Smith posted a topic in The PegboxI don’t feel like workin,,,I’m sick,,Headache sniff, no fiddlework for me,,,,,,,,,,,so I quit school in 10th grade after I finished my guitar project, next year I quit after my shop project,, Next year the counsler said ,,,”if you want to come back,,,no shop for you,,,” I didn’t I’ve done wood for a longtime,,so now you know,,,, How about some superglue horror stories: Not discussions on the rightness or wrongness of the glue,,, But what has it done to you,,or a loved one,,or an annoying one,,,, Superglue can create sudden and unexpected situations,, Big music store,,, Closes at 6:00 SHARP! You must be out of the building by 6:05 THE ALARMS ARE SET! I’ve been doing fret jobs all day,,,, Very tired,,,working in “The Dungeon:” In the winter,,,,,go to work in the dark, go to “The Dungeon”,,,,,go home in the dark. I just want to go home. This kid comes in with some hot rod with superlites on it,,and his nut is slipping around and I should be nice and glue it for him . It is a couple of minutes from closing,, Have you ever been in a hurry and it just DID NOT work out? Soon yes very soon we are going to see the King,,, And very soon the entire palm of my left hand was G-L-uuuuued to the back of his guitar neck, In a Gmaj7#5b9 position. Absolutely a true story. Moral of the story,,,,,(I’m an idiot,,well ,,,sometimes mabe,) I have a holder for superglue bottle…. Bottle stays in holder… Do not cut top off of superglue bottle….. Use needles or pipettes to apply. Get only a small bottle, and if it’s good to the last drop,,,, Your probably using TOOOO much. (he thought that he would get used to my hand,,,he loved the chord)
