Greetings from viola da gamba making bench! I’ve been doing this for some time now and decided to share my ways with you. For me it’s strictly viols in all sizes. I’ve never build a violin in the past and I don’t plan to in the future. I don’t do it full time. It’s more like a chill out activity in my spare time to take my mind off things. Currently working on a tenor viol. Here are some videos from my workshop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSMeBtIXr8Y Enjoy!
This is a reboot of a previous thread I started in the Scroll. (link: http://www.maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/334412-early-violaviol-da-gamba-purchased/) I purchased this instrument recently, and I'm interested in restoring it, as it seems a worthy instrument. It has seen moderate to heavy intervention in the past, so previous owners of the instrument have felt the same. Linked below are photographs I've taken. If anyone wants to see something in specific, I'll do what I can! Here's a link to my complete Photobucket album, with 24 pictures. http://s1348.photobucket.com/user/andrewmcinnes/library/Viol%20da%20Gamba Dimensions are as follows: Body is 520mm or 20 1/2" Overall is 850 mm or 33 1/2" Rib height is 55mm or 2 1/4"
Hello. I'm new this website also i'm beginner. I need suggest tools for viol instruments. I'm trying buy 1 or 2 chisels, 1 or 2 gouges and 1 plane. What i was checking tools from pfeil, Lie Nilsen, Veritas, Crown, Staudi and Hersim tools. There are any people have information about Crown, Veritas and Staudi. I hear Staudi metal is good but i don't have many information for good tools brands for beginner. I'm think each tool not over 75euro and total not over 300 euro. What i afraid is even in same brand tools are price too much up and down so i'm not sure what is better. Because all the time look for good tools and then price are up also. I'm also think not buy lot of tools and buy tools each one different brands and test which brands are good to me. There are anyone can suggest me good tools? Thank you. Ps. There are anyone also know how to making violin knife tools? Please let me know!
