  1. Hi all, I got an auction violin that's made by a maker named Giuseppe Triolo from Torino. The violin is made in 1982, with violin having a label with handwritten signature on it. The violin also comes with maker's certificate and a violin case of the maker(a brass label of his name). However, there's not much information available about him. He seems to be known for making mandolin(http://flumini.blogspot.com/2011/07/liuteria-e-giuseppe-triolo.html). I am curious if anyone has more information about this maker and wondering if the violin holds a good value as Cremona is the name that I heard most when people talked about Italian violins. I am quite new to all the knowledge about violin apart from playing it so it would be great if anyone could give me some clue. Thanks in advance!
  2. I bought it recently at a local private dealer for $10000 usd. But it doesn’t have a certificate and its maker is unknown as shown in the signature inside the violin. The dealer only says it is Italian and I thought it sounds unique so I still went ahead and bought it. Can someone help me identify this violin? Thanks.
  3. Hi there I have an old-looking violin, purchased in the 80’s. At the time it was attributed to Andrea Castagneri. Would you agree with this? It doesn’t have a label and doesn’t look like your typical Castagneri violin, but has some similarities, I agree. It was recently valued for insurance purposes by Bromptons at £13,000. Thanks for your input in advance!
  4. Hi all, I‘m wondering if you have any ideas about the origin of this viola. Most violinmakers have different opinions about it. I‘m interested if anyone knows something similar? The length of the back is 41,7cm. Very high arching. Clear, transparent, honey colored, amber varnish. Covered hole in the back of the peg box. Please tell me if you need more information. Some dealers really fall in love with it and some are definitely not impressed… Musicians and the audience love it! Thanks for your help!
  5. Hello everybody! I'm an avid amateur cellist interested in browsing online listings and learning more about their respective makers. Today I came across a beautiful cello listed at a surprisingly low price (<2000€) with the following inscription: "Leone Sanavia Liut.. Fece nell' anno 1930 Liettoli (Venezia)" I never heard of this maker before, so I googled him and it seems he was primarily a maker of guitars. There's almost nothing about his instruments though, I found records of one viola sold in 1998 and two cellos on the market right now not counting the one I discovered. To my moderately trained eye, it looks well made and preserved and I'm really enamoured by the scroll. I'm a little bit confused by the weird tailpiece set-up (one single fine tuner for the a string), overly long pegs and cheap strings - looks like fittings for some mass produced cheap instruments, which it can't be by the looks of it?! I'm tempted to go and see it in person, but it is quite the drive and I'd love to know a little bit more before making that decision! Maybe it really isn't anything but average, but something tells me that it could be sold by someone who doesn't know what they've got on their hands. Anyways, I'd love to learn something new and looking forward to some more expert opinions! Thank you and have a great weekend
  6. Can anyone tell me if this violin and bow are Italian or French, my first thought is Cremonese, but I am not 100 per cent certain, and as itis on sale for the astronomical sum of 65 pounds I would value your opinions
  7. Better pics this time, I hope! I’m very interested in what it takes to identify violins by pics. I hope I can learn some helpful advice and possibly get some ideas on the origin of my fiddle at the same time. The violin has some warping of the top from the neck pulling through the years. It causes the top to look square when I believe if it were new it would have been rounder next to the neck. Plus it’s made the top puff up around the neck joint. Just saying the disfigured top may be deceiving. An old Lete repair label with the “Repaired by” cut off. No label. Any other photo I need to post please let me know. All guesses and advice is extremely welcome! Thanks, ole timer
  8. Hello, I just aquired this violin in a very bad shape. The good new is that it has no worm and nothing is missing. I think it is Italian, late 17th or early 18th, but not sure. The peg box is very unusual, very Gragnani like, but it might not be original. There is an old, probably fake Sanctus Serafin label. Would someone be able to help me a little bit in my search ? A proper restoration will be quite expensive and I need to know if it is worth the expense. In advance, thank you !
  9. I think this viola looks interesting. What are your thoughts? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113795126199
  10. Hi, I am new to the forum and was looking to get some help. I am from Malaysia and have been learning the violin for 3 years. I am an adult learner and recently decided to give myself a treat by purchasing a new violin. I currently play on a violin from that I purchased in Singapore at a shop Gramercy fo $1500 (USD). I understand this is a Czech instrument but am not very sure either. I was looking at some Italian violins for 'investment' purposes too and have been reading up a lot. A seller in Malaysia has helped me narrow it down to 3 pieces: Giorgio Grisales: $19,000 Stefano Marzi: $18,000 Stefano Simoetti: $13,000 I understand that the Simonetti is a workshop violin from the maker Dimitri Atanassov. I have tried the violins and personally, I think it sounds as good as the other 2. However, I cannot find much information about it. Is this a new brand? Anybody have any information that you can share on this? Also, does it mean that even though the sound is about on the same level (IMO), the price will not appreciate? Thank you and any input would be much appreciated!
  11. Hello. Tell me please, what kind of a violin is this? Inside the label is Giovanni Vinaccia, Naples 1754.I can not take a photo of label now. Sorry for the quality of the photo.Thank you.
  12. Client provided an unusual asset that needs verifying. Pictures provided have been taken by the client, though clearer, more precise images will be made available once in our custody. Open to comments please, as the asset has been held by the current owner for many years. Limited details until package is received the next few days.
  13. Hi everyone, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Violoncello-4-4-Cello-Mateo-Bruni-1949-u-V/192287360142?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Da98b1ce51e004842bb8c398545161c3b%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D222615375260&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ab624b01c-88e7-11e7-8f53-74dbd18052d1%7Cparentrq%3A1508ab1a15e0abda4bd10caefffc759d%7Ciid%3A1 I saw this cello on ebay, which has a label saying Mateo Bruni 1949, but it doesn't look right to me... (apart from the bridge that is placed the wrong way around ) It looks too new to be from 1949, and also the fingerboard looks as though it's just come out of the workshop. Would this be an example of a new Chinese instrument, with a fake label of a not too well-known Italian luthier, to make it not too obvious that it is something else, or could this be genuine? Joris
  14. I don't know much about his violin except that it looks as if it had a catastrophic accident (like someone sitting on it, or similar). The neck does not appear to be original to the body, but is apparently quite old as well. The repairs are extensive, and were all done at the same time, so someone must have cared enough to undergo all of that. I've already had one opinion from a good local luther, and was told it "leans" toward Italian with respect to the wood, age, purling. I'm just curious if any of you can determine anything about it from the photos, like the country of origin, age, school, etc. Or....what it's NOT. (FYI, if you can't read the brand on the bridge, it says "Bein & Fushi Chicago".)
  15. http://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p4712.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xgeige+grancino.TRS0&_nkw=geige+grancino&_sacat=0 hello guys. what is it? is it really an italian violin?
  16. I have some names and numbers already (and I know this question has already been asked here on occasion): where should I go to see and play some fabulous violins and violas. Thanks. Ciao.
  17. Need to verify this old Carlo Bergonzi Violin dated 1733 in writing
  18. Does anybody know something about this "apocryphic" maker? http://tarisio.com/pages/auction/auction_item.php?csid=2197864448&cpid=3198255104 I know this name only from Mirecourt labels, the violin itself doesn't look like "anything I know", but the bidding is exorbitant.
  19. Dear fellow Forum readers, What do you think of the following instrument? According to the label, which might even be authentic, but you never know the violin is made by Giuseppe Bargelli, a maker from Firenze. http://www.ebay.de/itm/SCHONE-ALTE-4-4-GEIGE-MIT-ZETTEL-GIUSEPPE-BARGELLI-1947-/281008593846?pt=Streich_und_Zupfinstrumente&hash=item416d6adbb6 How about the varnish? To me it looks that a new layer of varnish was applied but it might only be the reflection of light. Best, Andras
