I was thinking here how complex the universe of varnishes for musical instruments is - especially the classic ones. Following here on the forum, even without understanding enough, I see how "organic" a topic on this topic can be. Those who understand the English language are in privileged terrain for the most diverse areas of knowledge. It is no different with varnishes. For other speakers, terms can get even more ambiguous. Another thing I find difficult to deal with is the fragmentation of knowledge. How often is information lost or incomplete, like a broken link or photo, on forums! There is also a lot of noise in the discussions. Books should be a good source, or perhaps the best, for those with the access and budget, I think. In that sense, I'm led to believe that a repository of information on varnishes would be wonderful. Just like free software developers have, for example. On which, the most experienced and competent act as the main moderators in a mutual help group. Of course I say this from my point of view and limited context that may be irrelevant to most of this forum. Anyone interested in elaborating and expanding this idea?
Good morning all. I am an amateur player and repairman. My real job is chief engineer of a seagoing tug, and I also enjoy inventing. I discovered the Stroh violin/violinophone on a Lindsay Stirling video and am embarking on building my own. I have scoured the internet, youtube, etc. looking for blueprints or any sort of plans, but there isn't much out there. I was wondering if anyone could provide some info on some specifics maybe: 1. Details on the sound box; shape and materials that could be used. I thought of trying a cast brass junction box? 2. Diaphragm substitutes ( I saw one that utilized a mason jar lid) 3 Details on the "rocker arm" between the bridge and diaphragm (materials and geometry) I have already rounded up a used Olds Ambassador trombone, a set of boat horns (for the monitor horn) and a VSO to sacrifice for the neck, etc. I do a lot of hand carving and would like to do something nautically themed for the diaphragm box or sound box. Thanks for any help.
