  1. Hello everyone, I am a new member of this forum, so forgive me if I seem a little unknowledgeable. I came across this Auction series called Amati Affordable a few months ago where the Amati Auction house was bidding instruments, certainly very unique and old ones, from the starting price of 10 pounds. Seeing that for a long time, my dream has been to own a baroque-era violin (just for collection's sake, I have an awesome violin already), yet disheartened by just how expensive these instruments tended to get, I thought this to be a great opportunity. I just want to know if anyone here knows anything about whether that auction house can be trusted, or whether any of the instruments in the current Amati Affordable auction are indeed baroque, or just convincing German copies. Thanks.
  2. Hi, a rapid search on Abebooks for luthier books show a few hits https://www.abebooks.fr/products/isbn/9780962067358?cm_sp=rec-_-pd_detail-1-d_0-_-plp&reftag=pd_detail-1-d_0 but no hits on gut-stringed baroque-style violins. Does anyone have a suggestion of a good book on the measurements of baroque-styled gut stringed violins? Thanks
  3. Please help me ID. I can mark them as: Tyrolean (Germany - Europe) baroque violin style of Jacob Stainer, Late 18th century? The corner blocks athey are tight fitting with no gaps. There is rib material between the neck and block joint, the lower and upper rib in one piece, saddle is embedded in the top plate, beveled fingerboard, fixing baroque necks - screw etc. In my opinion, the bottom plate of the violin and the neck (maple) were attacked by a worm before the violin was made. The holes (damaged) by the worms are perpendicular, the paths are shallow - no damage that penetrates deep or below the surface. Please give your opinion - thank you.

  4. Hello Maestros, The recent thread on a Strad viola with original neck and fittings led me to wonder if the baroque period makers put a scoop in their fingerboards. --Bill
  5. I suspect that this is just a weird old Saxon violin, but it was very inexpensive; that and the apparently old-style neck brought it to my attention. The pegbox is a mess, having had those 19th-c. mechanical tuners installed (and maybe someone cut on the back end of it under the scroll--something's up there), and there is the apparently-repaired bass bar crack. But I wondered if the neck were planed flat and a wedge and a baroque-style fingerboard installed, bushings, pegs, and cheek repairs for the pegbox--whether this violin could be justifiably put in transitional or baroque form. The fingerboard that's on it now is weirdly tilted to the treble side (note the difference in the existing wedge's thickness) and the nut is moved back on the pegbox so whoever did this could have a c. 325mm string length, but while the neck is something like 130mm to where a nut ought to be, the body stop is short--c. 187mm to the inside ff notches. I think the bass bar is small, but I'm not sure... Anyway, advice or laughter is welcome. Happy New Year! Thanks, Paul
