  1. 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...
  2. Hi I have my grandfathers violin here which his grandfather bought secondhand around 1890. Does anyone know the aprox age or country? It has painted purfling and no corner blocks. The sound post and nut are missing, I think the nut was ivory. Thanks
  3. Hi, I have a full size violin that was bought from Belmont Music Centre in 2013 for $20NZD and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it, like age or country or anything. It has a pattern carved in the scroll, and has an ebony fingerboard. It has no label inside. The case is made in W-Germany so I'm guessing it would be 1950s-1980s (assuming the case was the original for the violin), the music centre we bought it from got it second hand in the early 1990s. Thanks!
  4. Hello, I know next to nothing about the violin in general so perhaps that's behind some of the ignorance regarding this post, but I have been fascinated by it's sound and aura for quite some time, so now, after sitting in it's case for say 30 years, I opened it up and will pursue to become.. well decent! I am merely curious what this thing is.. I'll include the label; the date is suspicious, surely "touched up", but if "Made in USSR" is true then it would be fun to have the name of a potential maker if possible? Whatever it is, it strikes me as a former "work horse". Perhaps you'll t
  5. i recently purchased this violin , i don't recognise any distinct model in its design any ideas? thanks
  6. Hello, I'm new to this forum and could use some help dating and identifying a Violin I recently purchased. It measures about 24 inches in length. The body measures 14 inches and the scroll measures about 4.5 inches. The body is 8.5inches in width At the base and 7 inches at the top. The violin does not have a label and I was wondering if someone could help dating and identifying the violin? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  7. Hi,I bought this violin in the year 2000. The man who sold it to me said that the violin was 200 years old (I don't know if it's true or not), but didn't know anything else about the instrument. It has a very warm and mellow sound. I don't want to sell it because it has a very sentimental meaning to me but I'm just curious. Can anyone please help me with more information? Any thoughts on age or origin? Thank you in advance.
  8. Dear violin friends, A few weeks ago, I posted a thread about an unknown violin bought at Amatis, with peculiar f holes. With not much success, I must admit... Next step was to go to the luthier, in order to get the thing fixed. So I went to Roland Terrier, at Mirecourt. I was pleased to see he took much interest in the violin, wich he identified as a XIIIth century instrument, most probably french. Roland said he would check his extensive photographic database in order to see if identification could be pushed further. Two open cracks had at least to be repaired, plus t
  9. I just opened my account. I wish this wasn't the first thing I'd have to post. I've been following Maestronet forums for a long time, but without an account. lol Opened one so I could post this question. I'm still trying to figure how to use this. lol Sorry for the not-so-great photos. These are all the stupid seller could take. What do you think of the violins? In theory the labels say, Joseph Gagliano filius Nicolai fecit Neap. 1760 Photos >> (Click the link to go to the flickr album)
  10. Here I have a Maggini copy with a klingenthal maker’s or trade stamp stamped on the inside of back. It reads ‘A...something. klingenthal’ Seems like a slightly better Klingenthal fiddle - scroll is neatly done, fully blocked corners, neat linings, one piece back. Anyone have any references or thoughts?
  11. I have what I think is an interesting violin, or rather the pieces of one, and I am hoping to learn some more about it. I do not believe that it has any particular value, other than perhaps the story it has to tell. The main point of interest to me is the construction of the top-plate and back-plate, which are both layered. Other than pictures, I only have a small amount of information I can provide. The violin was given to my mother when she was a young girl, growing up in rural Arkansas (which would have been sometime in the late 50s or early 60s), which means that it
  12. Hi guys! First post heren and I kindly ask for help in identifying and valuing this violin. It was bought 22 years ago, at that time I was still playing, but I had to focus on other activities and the instrument was left in the case for those years. From what I can remember the luthier who sold it said it was a copy, but I do not know how exact its source was. Thank you much! Rafael Mello
  13. Hi all can you help me ID my friends violin Its looks french german and it seem to have A signature BTZM or N
  14. Hello all, This is my first post, but I’m beyond grateful for how much I’ve learned by reading through MN forums archives over the last year or so. I’ve had this violin for about 25 years and I’d deeply appreciate any insight as to it’s origins and approximate age. My 9 year old son is just starting to play, and while this is still quite a ways off from being an appropriate size for him, I’d like to get a sense whether or not it’s worth investing to get it properly repaired. Length of back is 360 mm.
  15. For those interested in having a violin potentially identified (and not all can be identified solely based on photos regardless), please take some basic photos of your instrument. Photographs must be clear (not blurry) and well-lit (so details show). Do not have a distracting background (such as patterned tablecloths or bedding). Do not photograph the instrument from odd angles. Please provide the following basic shots: 1. Body, Front and Back 2. Body, Right side and left side, to show the arching 3. Scroll, Front and back 4. Scroll, Right side and left side 5
  16. What is this violin? Photo Here The violinist allegedly choked the woman so hard that the blood vessels in her eyes were ruptured, according to a court complaint. READ MORE HERE:
  17. Hi all. So here it is. This is the violin that was the spark that caused fire in my head. Although I've got some conjuctures nothing's still have no idea who has made this violin. Just to make it more clear I've decided to ask Peter Ratcliff to obtaine belly dates which he naturally did. I would like to thank him again here. Indeed he is really a pro :hail: What I have is my description and Peter's data of course. Measurements in spite of wood wear could not match exactly typical of that which father of this violin used to make. Measurements: LOB 354mm, Widths: 161/107/199,5. P
  18. I'm thinking nice Mittenwald violin, first half of 1800s, in near original condition?

    Any help with this one? Where it was most likely made? And about what age would you estimate it is? The non-blackened pegbox and the edges are somewhat different from the usual Markneukirchen violins that I see? There is no label inside. Top is smoothly carved, no gauge marks. It looks like it has 4 corner blocks.

    Violin ID Any ideas on this one? It has one of the most beautiful backs Ive seen on any violin. Scroll isnt grafted but neck seems to have been extended? The listing was ended before the end of the auction, so the buyer most likely accepted someone's private offer. P.S. Since this violin isnt on Auction anymore, I posted in Pegbox instead of Auction Scroll.
  22. Any ideas on this violin and bow? The violin seems like the usual to me, but the seal at the button is strange. And the lack of purfling. The front and sides seems to have been revarnished. The graft looks fake. No corner blocks. The bow is rather interesting (to me, atleast). Any ideas?
  23. I saw this violin at the last Bromptons sale yesterday and wondered if anyone had any thoughts on it? It has a really interesting outline. I like how the upper corners jut out almost horrizontaly. I don't recall seeing a violin with a similar outline. I also love the choice of wood. Is it what some people refer to as 'oppio'? I thought I would post this in the hope of hearing other people's opinions about it. Does it look particularly 'Mantuan', if so,
  24. Hi again, Is this again the usual? It seems to have been sanded down with sandpaper and revarnished, but the corners and purfling on the front seems... different.. from what I usually see. Reminds me of a Klingenthal violin Ive seen a while back. However I could be totally wrong. Thanks.

    Yet another violin, where I wonder what it is. I would assume it is German, doesn't look like Mittenwald to my eyes. Label is of no help (Guadagnini). I know, it has lot's of damage. Very nicely done neck graft, came with a Beare bridge.
