  1. So I’m building a wild thing for a client. It’s a modern hardanger similar to what Salve Håkedal has been building. And I’m running into concerns about the weight of the pegbox and scroll. Not a surprise considering that it has ten strings. I have removed as much weight as I think I can from the neck and heel. But it’s still coming in very heavy, no doubt because of the pegbox. 120g? If memory serves. No pegs, holes, or FB. I plan on using some version of perfection/peg heads in 1/2 or 3/4 sizes to both make room and save weight. However it’s still going to be a lot of weight in the
  2. Just a question out of curiosity. If not, where is the major problem doing this with a CNC machine?
  3. Hey everybody. I'm actually working on a cello based on Stradivari Forma B, the one that's supposed to be used to build the Gore Booth. I designed my scroll starting from the picture of the gore booth scroll shown on Sacconi book. Well, I've just finished to carve the second round and I'm about to connect the volute to the turn and I'm wondering about the width of that area, right after the throat. I've checked some measures about that point on violin and I've found out that it's around 26mm on Stradivari scrolls, but I found out nothing a
  4. 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 !
  5. I had this cello pegged as a German factory cello circa 1960 based on the body. I adore these celli for their tone at a relatively low price. Before the work to be done, I set it up first to see if the tone is worth the work. I did not notice this at first, but the scroll is partly translucent. Now I’m not really sure what era this cello is from as I have never seen it before. Purfling is scratched but some idiot ran a black market around the back plate, which is not coming off with water and steel wool.
  6. Hi everyone. I have built my first violin. Not in the most elegant way maybe, but I had a rather limited setup of tools. The sound is rather evenly dynamic between strings/tunes but somewhat loud and sharp. Using a mute results in a more normal violin sound. I chose to give it a couple of untraditionally attributes, for instance inverted pegbox, hollow scroll, large nut, and less prominent corner blocks. I will work on modifications to come closer to the sound I like. Would appreciate comments/tips. What do you think will be the most effective way of making the sound softer? Like with a m
  7. Hi Everyone, Could you help me to decode this symbol placed on the back of a violin scroll? Thanks! Regards to All, B.
  8. I am slowly trudging ahead to the day I can actually start carving my #1 violin. I have received a Strad Poster for the Messiah from a very generous member here, and will be making a "based on" not "copy of" the Messiah violin from it. The direction I have decided to go is to try and make it symmetrical, so I am "averaging" the measurements (where there are two values for sides, etc) from the poster and using that average for my drawing. Step one is to be the scroll and neck. Being me, I want to understand what I am doing, and so in digging around, I found Addie's drawings (THANK YOU!) an
  9. Hello to everyone this is De Paoli from Canada I would like to add more photos of tone wood and accessories that we have if there is an interest please let me know as we are moving from our present location over the next month and would like all this wonderful collection to go to luthier's hands! the next few posts will be of pics but if you request something specific i can post many more! thanks again for the interest!
  10. Unknow Scroll - pic 1 Unknow Scroll - pic 2 Any insight as to origin or school (anything) would be much appreciated... The pegs have been brushed, head seems to be pinched, volute slow taper, conical eye large and prominent... I am stymied... Apologies as I was unable to download pics directly to the forum. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi everyone, I'm currently building my second violin and loosely using a poster for the Del Gesu Alard. As a player I really notice when something is not right with the neck. There's a big discrepancy on where the scroll heel sits in reference to the end of the fingerboard/nut joint between my Johnson and Courtnall generic neck template and the strad poster that I'm referencing. The poster has the heel protruding maybe 2mm further into the neck. I do remember my last violin not feeling 100% comfortable in 1st position, but chalked that up to a pegbox that was too wide. My initial reac
  12. I was reading a nice article on by John Dilworth on Andrea Amati. He was writing about how lovely the scroll was and how it was superfluous . It got me to thinking about a violin/viola design that only includes that which contributes to the sound, ergonomics, preservation, and stability of an instrument. I was thinking of this in a number of ways: 1. Simpler instruments for students. 2. Better Ergonomics 3. Easier Building 4. Improved Sound 5. Lighter Weight What would you leave on, what would you leave off. Think of it a
  13. Hi everyone, When I was looking through my photo library today I noticed what appears to be a star-like imprint on the bass side of a scroll that is designated in my files as belonging to the 1713 Stradivari 'Pingrille'. Of course, this immediately brought to mind the similar imprint preserved on the bass side of the 'Messiah' scroll. I don't have access to alot of literature, but the catalog from the recent 'Stradivarius' exhibit put together by Charles Beare makes no mention of any Strad scrolls other than the Messiah which bear a star imprint. Stewart Pollen's article A Case Study: t
  14. Hi everyone, I debated whether or not to post here, being completely new to violin making, but I figured some of you might be interested (and I could sure use the help!!!). If the mods disagree with my being here, I'm completely fine with deleting this thread. I'm Joe, aged 16, and I love violins! I was given pretty much all the tools I needed (those of you on will recognise me. I'm not affiliated, just shedding light on my background) and I've started building a violin using un-finished/started parts from a deceased maker and one of my friends (who's a professional violi
