  1. I’ve been looking at making scrapers based on those in the collection at the Violin Museum in Cremona (MS 691 up to MS 697). To work out their outlines, I’m using the pictures and measurements provided by the catalogue of their collection . (https://museodelviolino.org/en/nuovo-libro-antonio-stradivari-disegni-modelli-forme/). During the process a few questions came up and I’m wondering if participants of this forum would have answers? 1)While resizing the outlines to the measurements provided by the book, most of them worked pretty accurately besides the MS693 which seems slightly narrower when proportionally adjusted to length and most importantly the MS696 which is about 6mm longer when proportionally adjusted to the width measurements. As the book gives the exact same measures for the MS696 and the MS697, the latter fitting within the measurements provided. I’m wondering if it could be a mistake during the data recording/entry? Or a photo distortion that could have happened during the editing? Something else? (please ref to snapshot provided, the frame representing the size provided in the book). 2) Has anyone had a chance to look at them out of their display box? And if so, have measurements of the MS696? 3) Is there any record of their thickness available? 4) Are there bevels on one side only or on both sides for each of them? Thank you for your insight,
  2. I asked a seller about the label that was similar to this one's (same font, size and text). He said that violins with that label were made only up to 40s. Is it true? Can this violin be that old? What could be its value approximately? It seems to be glued from near the sound post (2 photos in the upper left corner) I could not get a whole picture of the label, but there reads: "COPY OF / Antonius Stradicarius / Made in Germany".
  3. Yet another article about the Strad varnish chemistry - the Angewandte Chemie, 2021 paper...https://arstechnica.com/science/2021/09/study-confirms-superior-sound-of-a-stradivari-is-due-to-the-varnish/ Any additional thoughts? At least this summary and intro was written well, and fairly conveys some of the prior work...
  4. What we all hope for...Man finds Strad in grandmother's flat: https://slippedisc.com/2020/09/man-finds-strad-in-dead-aunts-flat/ Of course, Lebrecht, @CarlStross's favorite critic, should realize that if it really is a Strad, how it sounds makes little difference. MAN FINDS STRAD IN DEAD AUNT’S FLAT By Norman Lebrecht On September 9, 2020 RIA Novosti reports that a Moscow man, Yuri Kurnosov, clearing out his late aunt’s apartment in the Tula region, found a violin, which turned out to have been made in Antonio Stradivarius’s workshop in the 1690s. Before Sotheby’s get all excited, instrument is not in prime condition. It has no strings, one peg is missing and no-one knows what it will sound like after restoration.
  5. Dear folks, I am looking for the Gibson Viola Strad poster. I think its P111 Is there anyone out there that might have one they would be willing to share with me, I am happy to pay for it or I can copy it. I started a Gibson viola years ago and lost the poster in a move. Thanks in advance! Frank
  6. I found this cello today for a very cheap price and I was hoping someone could help me find some information about it. The varnish is starting to crack so the instrument was either mistreated or has some age. Previous owner seems to have rigged bass tuners on the peg box which seemed odd but did work. There is a Stradivarius tag inside the cello; it looks like the model number is HG,644 and the serial number is 505002. It played nicely and had the similar sweet, full sound of other Stradivarius instruments but I couldn't find anything about the instrument. It doesn't have any flamed maple or figured wood types, looks pretty plain, but I don't know much about instrument identification. Not sure if it's a real Strad replica so if anyone could help with my search it would be greatly appreciated. (sorry for the bad photos. just tried to snap a couple before i left.)

  8. What's missing? Is it simply just age? Is it using the exact right timber? Perhaps it has something to do with arriving at the exact correct dimensions, for the material being used? does "it" have something to do with the varnish? If its age, then, we must all simply wait... right? How long? That some people do not think there's anything missing, usually, it's only with regard to their own work... and in those cases, yes, I have to wonder. Perhaps they're right, and there's nothing missing, and many of us are fooling ourselves somewhat, with regard to what we and the others around us make today - and how those things act compared to those specific instruments of old? Perhaps the very best players have been duped, along with the rest of us, and demand the "best" as a sort of "merit badge" and owning or playing a thing of great value? Not being intentionally dense here, but this question has been in the back of my mind for many years. And I've never been able to answer it to my own satisfaction. Perhaps it's simply my fate, to always wonder at the missing quality(s) that I think, perhaps, really does or do exist, and has, in the main, not been re-discovered and used or copied in "modern times"? What do others think about such matters? Do others bother to think or wonder much about this topic? If so, I am wondering about what thing or things that others might think is missing? Anything?
  9. I have an old violin, very old. has no label inside. I have a feeling that it Stradivarius. there are a few details, such as color, density wood, asymmetry, insert the pins, button, under the neck, in the middle of an oval shape with "f", various symmetrical additives in the middle: square and oval. in the middle of the black border is marked on the bottom plate, 1.5 cm from the edge. language at the neck is black circuit. on the head seen from the inner side of the selected print, round, with the key inside the hole. on the one hand, the screw letter "G". back plate corrugated, non-planar back plate imprinted letters, the gut like subtitles overlapping, or that give this impression. in the middle of the ball, loosely pending. Violin sound great, amazing. whether it can be Strad?
  10. Who made this Viola, could be Italian? maybe Amati? http://subefotos.com/ver/?655225819f0f98cf13e3d950e8c08f7bo.jpg Thank you very much for the help
