  1. Tiene 35,5 de largo, ancho superior 16,8, ancho inferior 20,5 y 11,2 en el centro. En el interior hay un VP marcado con fuego dentro de un óvalo. En el botón también. Está certificado por la primera mitad del XIX e Italia, pero su origen es incierto. Quizás de alguna escuela del norte de Italia.

  2. Hello! Father of a teenage violinist; extremely amateurish guitarist; music lover; admirer of serious artisans/craftspersons; and generally too-curious-for-my-own-good individual making my first posting on Maestronet here. I have been reading Pegbox threads for a couple of weeks now hoping to glean information going into the process of acquiring a full-size violin and bow for my thirteen-year-old daughter. Really impressed by and appreciative of the knowledge shared here, despite not feeling like I am absorbing much of it! I’ve got an “I don’t think it’s what it says it is but also have n
  3. Hello, Please see images below... this violin has gone in for repair - would really appreciate any comments on when and where it might have been made. Also possible value? Please may you also include what identifies it ( I am new here, curious and eager to learn!)
  4. Anyone recognize this maker stamp? The label is entirely illegible, the stamp bears the letters C G. The instrument is of very good quality, mid to late 19th century. I suspect one of the Gands, but have yet to find evidence of this stamp in anything.
  5. Hi, Trying to learn more about my husband's grandmother's violin -- any suggestions would be most welcome, thank you! Most likely she was given the violin as a teenager in the late 1920's and at that time she would have been living in Arizona or California. When it came into our possession, it was in an old wooden violin case. The pegs and tailpiece that are shown in the photo are replacements added by someone who had borrowed the violin a few years ago. photos of the violin That is pretty much all we know about this violin. Thanks again!
  6. Hi guys! I'm new to this forum, and was wondering if someone out there might be able to kindly help me shed some light on the age or potential age and value of this violin. I honestly have hardly any reliable information on it, and if it once had a label, it has long since fallen out, and been lost. I've had this violin for over 13 years, and I love it very much. It's extremely lightweight, hugely resonant, with a deep, characterful tone on the lower strings, and wonderful projection and singing highs on the higher strings. Here's what I do know. I bought this from a lady (here in th
  7. Looking for some guidance here, label says Paul Bailly but it looks German.. Sorry the photos are not more clear! Taken from a listing. Thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks for viewing my violin. Wondering if this can be close to anything the label says? I spoke to a local violin shop owner and he said it was an authentic German violin valued $3000-$5000. My biggest concern was the 4 digit inventory number?THANKS!
  9. 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
  10. Good day everybody, I would appreciate ANY help possible since my initial research have not yielded any leads. I am stuck as to the best possible research tools for my mini project. This is a strange but true story. I will make it short so as not to waste anybody’s time. My Dad purchased this violin in the 1960’s in Moscow, USSR. In order to take it out of the country he had to get rid of the label so as to make sure it looks like a factory-made violin. Over the years he forgot what the label said and the original price paid. The only thing that he does repe
  11. I have a very strange old violin. I haven't seen anything else quite like it, and I would love any information that would give any idea of age/origin, etc. There doesn't appear to be any label or other markings inside the violin. Many thanks in advance! David
  12. I have a 2008 Alois Sandner Model #8225 cello that I bought a few years ago at Ifshin. I'm trying to ID it so that I can resell it. I would appreciate any help with this! Thank you so much! (Yes, one of the strings has broken so I'd need to get it restrung)
  13. I can’t find a chart that shows this yellow and brown string. Based upon thickness for being a C string, I believe it is tungsten. Does anyone have an idea?
  14. hello! i am new to this website, so forgive me if there’s anything on this post that’s out of wack... But I am a high schooler who wants to know more about my violin. I bought it around 4 years ago and was told by the business (who of course sells string instruments) that this is a German violin around 100 years old. I’ve always been curious as to whether or not this is correct, but also- what are these weird spots on my violin? Many of the nicks and circular indents were on the violin when I first got it- it doesn’t matter to me, but I’m just curious whether or not someone here know
  15. Does somebody could give me the autore's name of this drawing?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. This is my first post on the forums. I've been learning violin repair/restoration for about a year now and have been learning through the repair of a variety of old factory fiddles in various states of disrepair. I know enough about identifying violins to make me dangerous, so I'm hoping someone might be able to tell me about this fiddle. I recently picked up this G.A. Pfretschner and I'm wondering what anyone might be able to tell me about it. From the research I've done, it seems many (or most) of these violins were student grade instruments although it appears some of the instruments were o
  19. Hello everyone! First of all, I've been observing this forum for a long time and I'd like to thank you all for countless hours I spent here, exploring the fascinating subject of violin making and its history, the amount of knowledge one can find here is just unbelievable! I have here a violin which I'm curious to know more about - it's actually not yet another "how much can I sell it for" topic, I'm not interested in the value, I'm just very interested in knowing as much as possible about the model and origin of this violin. I tried to do my best, I did my homework and read the guidelines
  20. This is a smallish 7/8 cello that is on loan to me. I am very curious about how old it might be and of course, who the maker might be. The person who was storing this cello seems to know nothing about this cello except it’s “old”. Help appreciated!!
  21. Dear members, I have this violin from years ago. I bought thinking in order a restoration and barroque setup. Unfortunately my luthier said is too damaged, so the restoration is too expensive for the quality of instrument. Even so he said also is from late XVIII century, probably german. The instrument shows a repair label by Robert Hislop (no idea who was), Galashiels, 1886. Near the button has stamped apparently the name of the luthier but is almost erased: WIL... (William?). I know this kind of stamped names are typical from some french and english old violins but I can't find co
  22. My Mom gave us her cello about 5 years ago that she has had most of her life and she is now almost 70. It has part of a marking on the inside that says "made in Germany", but that is the only identification I can find. We are going to have to sell it and I don't have any idea what maker it is from or what general price I should try to sell it at. She played it in many orchestras and other cellists thought it had a wonderful sound. Any help you could provide would be wonderful! Thank you. -Jonathan
  23. My wife just bought a cello at a garage sale. The cello had belonged to the father of the woman who sold it. She did not know the origin of the cello but thought it might be from around the 1940’s. It has been played a lot and is in dire need of some tender love and care and we plan to talk it to a lutier for renovation. It was bought at the island of Gotland in Sweden so it is probably made in Europe. It has no labels or stamps inside the body. Anything you can tell us about it from the pictures would be greatly appreciated. If more pictures are required please specify what kind and I wi
  24. Hi all, Can anyone help identify possible makers for this bow? It appears to be stamped SED????ON There is a sticker on the frog which reads made in France. Thanks
