  1. I just wanted to introduce people on Maestronet to a newly introduced product for repairing and replacing bow tips. It is called Tip Armor, made by David Warther. This is a new synthetic tip plate, sure to pass by even the most ignorant of Customs officials. I just got done with an urgent repair order of re-tipping a dozen bows using this product, and I am quite impressed. I had not used it before this week, and so I was a bit nervous about the results. Overall, I really liked it, and will begin recommending it for use in the future. I think that this will become a viable and accepted op
  2. The League of American Orchestras writes today that "One major exception to the rules will allow musicians to buy and sell instruments with small amounts of ivory, as well as carry them on international flights.… ‘We are so pleased,’ said Heather Noonan, the vice president for advocacy at the League of American Orchestras. ‘We’re particularly pleased that the rule confirms that domestic trade and international travel with existing musical instruments that contain small amounts of African elephant ivory aren’t contributing to the poaching crisis.’ NY Times story at http://www.nytimes.com

I've owned these bows for the past 20 years but no longer have any receipts to prove I've had them that long. Can anyone advise what the best course of action would be? I've thought about replacing the tips with another m
  5. I am currently fitting both nut and saddle on a baroque violoncello and quite close to the glue phase - I notice the synthetic ivory nut popped off with just a dab of synthetic hyde glue (titebond) when I set it temporarily. Anyone have any experience with the ivory from DICTUM and the best glue experience? The material appears and works like plastic of course and is nasty stuff as far as I am concerned, however I cannot afford mammoth right now. I was thinking to try hyde glue tomorrow and see how the saddle works out - I just cant imagine this fake ivory to suck up and absorb much gl
