  1. I am trying to get an idea of the value of this fiddle for a friend of mine who is selling it. The label for info on the fiddle is ‘Antonio Stradivarius 1690‘. I tried to capture it in one of the photos. Any insights would be useful.
  2. This is the second fiddle my friend wants to sell. I am looking for an approximate value. There is no label on it. Again , any help would be appreciated.
  3. Hi, I recently found this fiddle and am in need of identification assistance.. It came into my life all funky. I did not bedazzle it. After reading here for 3 days, I’ve learned a lot, but not enough to tell what I’m holding. The label looks super nice, saddle is marked an=25 Czech. Can’t see additional markings other than label (even with endpin out) Any Identification assistance would be greatly appreciated. I love it whatever it is, hope someone enjoys the pics, thanks! Violin dimensions (these are edge to edge) Length - 23.5 in - 59.69 cm Body lengt
  4. I’ve recently discovered a podcast called The Wandering Bard and recommend it for anyone interested in learning a bit about Celtic fiddle tunes, their history, and their composers. The host, Brandon Kennedy, is a fiddler himself and has spent a lot of time researching his subjects and traveling to gather local stories. He has said that he intends to expand the scope of the podcast as it continues, but there’s already plenty of great content. I’ve been listening to it in my workshop as I work and thoroughly enjoying it. It’s a good thing to listen to during this time of quarantine
  5. Master luthier Jonathan Cooper will be teaching a one-week lutherie class at the Acadia Trad Festival in Bar Harbor, Maine from June 28 - July 3, 2020. At his shop in Portland, Maine, Jon has made over 400 instruments in the last 40 years. His fiddles are played by many of the world’s best performers in trad music. In this one week workshop intensive, students will work together on a fiddle that will be completed in the white – no varnish. The workshop is appropriate for intermediate and advanced makers but can be a good beginning foundation as well for those interested. Students are wel
  6. I recently acquired this lionshead violin I am currently doing research on them and I just get more and more confused. As I stated in the title there is not identification paper inside the body of the fiddle that I can see. It may have moved however I do not have the tools to look inside of it. I want to know if there is any reason why I should not take this fiddle in to get repaired. Or if I should just set it in an auction on eBay for parts.
  7. Had this restored. It wasn’t in that bad of shape. The luthier couldn’t give me a name or an age, he thought maybe baroque. I don’t know why it has filled holes in the c-bouts and the three upfront. It came with a bow marked Vuillaume probably a copy. Thanks in advance.

  10. What is your opinions on originality etc. I would like to know if it's real or what.
  11. I bought a violin recently but i think it sounds very tinny and sharp when played. is there anything i can do to get a more mellow sound from it, like changing strings? i dont know what strings are currently on it. I just really hate the sharp tinny sound. Thanks
  12. I was visiting a friend recently and hanging on their wall was this rather sad old fiddle. I thought it looked a bit interesting so I quizzed them about it, aparrently it had belonged to their grandfather (this would put it back to early 20th century), and he had brought it from Scotland over to Ireland, and it was not new when he had it (not sure if he got it from an older relative or bought it secondhand - I can ask) I spotted the old-style neck and the aparrent inscription monogrammed onto the front? The neck is loose and wobbly, I told them it was interesting and that they should loo
