Hi All, I’m privileged to be the owner of a Tres Amigos violin (2013, Strad Model) made by Ryan Soltis, Antoine Nedelec, and Jeff Phillips for Julie Reed-Yeboah’s contemporary violin exhibition in New York. Every year (theoretically, ) the trio of first-class makers go through rotations of who does what. In the case of my current violin, the scroll/varnish is by Ryan, the back and ribs are by Antoine, and the top is by Jeff. After they completed three Strad models, of which mine is the second, they moved on to Del Gesu models. When the time for the second DG model came around, which would be the twin to mine in terms of who made what, I had expressed a lot of interest in the fiddle as a companion to my current Strad. Fast forward to 2020 and here we are with the fiddle completed! When I asked the trio if they would be okay with me posting the pictures, the condition was that I give Antoine a mohawk in one of them. VOILA.
Hi everyone at MN, I have another violin that has several opinions from 'experts' that vary from American early 20th century (this guy thinks anything not obviously German is American it seems), French mid 19th century, and N Italian possibly Lake Garda area late 19th century. Thinks he saw one very similar but couldn't remember the maker. Any thoughts? Having learned so much from Jacob Saunders I can see outer mould build, with pine corner blocks covering the ends of the linings. Seems French to me in my ignorance.
