  1. Could I possibly get some info on my violin? I bought it a year or so ago for £2200 and was told it was possibly around 1780s? The label is barely visible on the inside so I’ve edited the photo to make it appear more visible. Im well aware it’s not a genuine stainer and the labels are often faked. I’m an amateur vet med student who plays for fun so this is purely out of curiosity as I’d love to know a bit more about my instrument. It has a beautiful sweet and mellow sound so it certainly suits my needs as a non professional!
  2. Recently, I got hold of a violin bow with the nurnberger name on it. I was hoping I might get some useful opinions on its authenticity here. Origin: It was gifted to me by a friend who knows nothing about music. He claims to have found it in his family house in an empty violin case. Tone: The bow performed beautiful resonant tones much harmonic. (It's less subjective since I felt this before seeing "nurnberger" and thought it was a worthless old bow). It easily has one of the best sounds I tried despite its original hair being old and yellowed. (I did afterwards rehaired it) Appearance: As photo shows it has *ALBERT NURNBERGER* with "nurn" almost worn off. The frog and screw does seem to be original. Though the frog is strangely uneven with a 'rough' cut out part on it. Presumably done by its last owner out it his/her playing habits. The whalebone windings seem to be legit and has white markings on the "belly" of the stick. Presumably rosin marks. According to my highly unprofessional eyes, the tip suggests it's nurnberger's tourt model if it indeed is genuine. One another question I was hoping to get answer is that there is the metal bit attached to the end of stick that's not a part of the screw. Has anyone seen similar bows? What's is purpose? Maybe to lengthen/rebalance the bow? Better photos could always be arranged. Thanks to all for reading or replying to this post. Cheers!
  3. I’m not familiar with bow makers or how to identify what kind it is. Can anyone make out what it is?
  4. Hi all, Would anyone be able to give me some information on the identity or value of this violin? It is over 100 years old and has had a repair to the body. Looking for a date or country of origin, all I can see is some old German text. Please let me know if you need anything else. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. I am working on the restoration of a violin that has been in the same family since at least 1925, originally in the Charleston, SC area. The label attributes it to JB Schweitzer and is dated 1873, which would be quite remarkable, given that he died in 1865. It obviously differs not only from the common German workshop copies often dated 1813 or 1814, but also in the construction, particularly of the back, a two-piece affair made of highly-flamed maple. The ribs match the back. The top has cracks which have been repaired by me and a luthier named Cordell, in 1952 at his shop in Columbia, SC, where the family lived at that time. There are no stamps on the button and no frank indication that it was made in Germany. I am including several photos in hopes that someone might recognize this as a particular style of copy, or if the dim possibility that it might be authentic.
  6. Hello Mr Saunders Just thinking I would like to have your opinion on this head What do you reckon ? German yes, Stainer no , but who ? more Austrian than German ? I would be very happy if you care to tell me your opinion. It has been in my shop for the last 30 years thanks in advance tartarane https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public
  7. Any ideas? this violin came in today to my shop, no label. It was played many years ago in the Minnesota Orchestra. Looks like it was refinished at one time after 1940. Thin edging (3.5 mm) Good workmanship, strad f holes, More mellow than bright sound. Any ideas? The bow in the case is stamped Arthur Thoma. Octagon, silver mounted, three part parisian eye in Frog
