  1. This fairly nice looking violin is for sale locally. Is it really Italian like the label implies, or just a good looking German with a fake label? Your experience and expertise is appreciated!
  2. This is a Neuner and Hornsteiner violin likely purchased by a relative about 1900, maybe earlier. Any thoughts on narrowing down the year? Includes fake Strad label with "Neuner and Hornsteiner Mittenwald" cut off of the bottom of the label.
  3. Please help me ID. I can mark them as: Tyrolean (Germany - Europe) baroque violin style of Jacob Stainer, Late 18th century? The corner blocks athey are tight fitting with no gaps. There is rib material between the neck and block joint, the lower and upper rib in one piece, saddle is embedded in the top plate, beveled fingerboard, fixing baroque necks - screw etc. In my opinion, the bottom plate of the violin and the neck (maple) were attacked by a worm before the violin was made. The holes (damaged) by the worms are perpendicular, the paths are shallow - no damage that penetrates deep or below the surface. Please give your opinion - thank you.

  4. Hi everyone, In late 2019, I decided to upgrade to a better viola. Fortunately as I have long arms and fingers, I wanted to try playing a larger instrument and that was when I stumbled upon someone selling his 17" viola. He was a retired man of very tall built and former professional player in an orchestra. The label states "Peter T Gallacher” from Edinburgh back in 1942. I tried looking this up, but could not find much information about the origins of this viola other than it originated in the UK and the previous owner brought it to here in Australia decades ago. Would anyone here have more information about this viola?
  5. Hi I have this cello I bought in 2013 for $150NZD. I think the strings are a bit too high, 8mm on the A string and 10mm on the C string, and I was thinking of getting the bridge made a bit lower, also because the bridge doesn't seem to fit the cello properly. but then I noticed the back is starting to come off and will need fixing. Does anyone know what kind of cello it is and if it would worth fixing? I know it's a cheap one, the fingerboard isn't ebony but the purfling is real. Thanks!
  6. Hello, I know next to nothing about the violin in general so perhaps that's behind some of the ignorance regarding this post, but I have been fascinated by it's sound and aura for quite some time, so now, after sitting in it's case for say 30 years, I opened it up and will pursue to become.. well decent! I am merely curious what this thing is.. I'll include the label; the date is suspicious, surely "touched up", but if "Made in USSR" is true then it would be fun to have the name of a potential maker if possible? Whatever it is, it strikes me as a former "work horse". Perhaps you'll tell me that I'd have a hard time giving this away but if there is any value to this instrument I'd want to know, that said, for what it's worth coming from someone who has never held or heard a violin up close, it seems well balanced and resonates, to me, surprisingly well and I do enjoy playing it so it won't be going anywhere. The upper half of the chinrest is glued and about to fall off, so I'll peel that off and see if it suits me better, but I decided to leave it in case it holds any clues.
  7. I bought my unlabeled violin in the 1990 from Israel Chorberg in New York; been using it since. It has a D'Attili letter that says "Italian, probably from the 1870s". Would any of you venture a guess as far as maker? I would be very grateful. Regards, Saul Bitran
  8. Dear Maestros – inspired by your knowledge I’d like to post photos of my cellos. I was once told they would both be from Germany, late 1800’s, but as I have read so many interesting and detailed discussions here in the pegbox, I was hoping you’d be interested in sharing your expert opinions on their origin. To avoid mixing up the photos here’s only the first cello for now... hope this works...
  9. I recently acquired a violin from amatis, wich f holes seem a bit "personal" to me. I am waiting for the instrument to be shipped, but meanwhile I join a few pics : scroll, table and back. The violin has already been heavily worked over : see corners (lower left f. e.), back. More or less successfully. I will hopefully be able to send more details soon. The usual question : any clues on where and when ? With many thanks for your kind advice
  10. Hi guys! First post heren and I kindly ask for help in identifying and valuing this violin. It was bought 22 years ago, at that time I was still playing, but I had to focus on other activities and the instrument was left in the case for those years. From what I can remember the luthier who sold it said it was a copy, but I do not know how exact its source was. Thank you much! Rafael Mello
  11. Hello All, I recently found this instrument at an estate sale and ended up bringing it home. It is unlabeled and unfortunately the seller knew nothing about it. It plays nicely enough and is in acceptable condition with the exception of the repaired crack on the lower bout. I'm hoping to get a sense as to is possible provenance. My own guess is early 20th century Mirecourt, but I'll let the experts tell me how wrong I very likely am. Thank you for any suggestions you have!
  12. For those interested in having a violin potentially identified (and not all can be identified solely based on photos regardless), please take some basic photos of your instrument. Photographs must be clear (not blurry) and well-lit (so details show). Do not have a distracting background (such as patterned tablecloths or bedding). Do not photograph the instrument from odd angles. Please provide the following basic shots: 1. Body, Front and Back 2. Body, Right side and left side, to show the arching 3. Scroll, Front and back 4. Scroll, Right side and left side 5. Detail of f-hole and C-bout (shows the purfling) 6. Saddle 7. Label (be aware that labels are often faked, replaced with labels from other instruments, and may be of little value. You may also want to add additional photographs of interest, such as a neck graft, repairs, anything that strikes you as unusual that may make the instrument easier to identify. A violin can be 'stood' upright on a sturdy container, such as a heavy water glass or jar or small sturdy bowl. Please ensure that the instrument will not fall while being photographed. Example*: *These photographs were taken by YitaMusic. I own the violin itself.
  13. Hi everyone, this is yet another unknown cello post... I received this one as a gift from a cellist in Germany and he received it from someone else. Two pros (performers) have played it and think it is a star instrument, but can't tell me anything about it. A couple of points - it looks old - actually old - when you see it in person. It also has raised wood grain on the front. For an EXHAUSTIVE collection of pictures, see this shared album on google: https://goo.gl/photos/y3BsudhYfF8stFEi6 I'd love to know what insight anyone can give me! This one is mine forever no matter what it is, or where it came from -- but the curiosity is killing me! Happy examining! Ash
