  1. Looking at this violin, the finish on the top looks awful while the finish on the back looks good. Is there a wood reaction to a varnish? Does spruce react/weather differently than maple? Or was this due to exposure (the front was exposed to the elements while the back was not)? Just curious! https://www.bromptons.co/auction/22nd-june-2020/lots/143-an-italian-viola-first-half-of-the-nineteenth-century.html
  2. Hello experts - I need some help on restoring the finish on my chinrest. The finish is coming off, and the raw (still stained) wood is exposed, which means it's absorbing perspiration and other nastiness. I believe that this was caused by somebody (ok, it was me) applying Hill Violin Cleaner and Polish to the chinrest. I thought it would polish it up nicely, but instead it seems to have taken off the finish in a bad way. I have the tools to properly remove the chinrest, but am not sure what would be the best way to restore a finish without replacing the chinrest entirely (not desirable, since it fits me perfectly). I'm not a luthier, so I don't have any experience with varnishes in that sense, but I do have woodworking experience. I just don't want to apply the wrong finish which would make things worse. Any advice? I was thinking of using beeswax as a simple solution.
  3. What, if any, is the experience with this product on a fiddle. I have used it on other projects with some success I know that it responds well to a piece of soft felt (wet or dry) to get a nice smooth finish that looks great Just wondering Jim
  4. Hi everyone, I'm hoping you are able to offer me some advice. In an attempt to improve my skills and confidence in performing, I have decided to purchase a secondary viola for playing outdoors, possibly busking. My budget is limited but I still have the option to choose between oil and nitrocellulose finishes. My questions are: 1. Will a nitrocellulose finish be hardier, or more weatherproof, than an oil finish? 2. Will a nitro finish affect the sound negatively, whether new or after a few years? (Given that it's for outdoor playing, sound will probably not be too much of a problem since it will be hard to hear either way..but if I'm spending money on an instrument I might as well get one that will sound decent for a while.) 3. I'm planning to use synthetic strings, likely Dominants to start with. Any recommendations for a sound that carries outdoors? Thank you in advance!
