Anyone have any general starting points to ID a Romeo Antoniazzi violin? Features to look for? Identifying stylistic elements? Marks? Et cetera... I am working on a research project on the lineage of makers he is a part of but his style seems, to my extremely basic eye, to be all over the board and very diverse. So I’m having trouble nailing down some themes to note for his instruments. I also don’t have a paid Tarisio account which I suppose might help but I’m trying to save money for now. Any tips on his instruments much appreciated. Thanks much!
So, I'd like to thank you all in advance for potentially helping me sort through all of the general questions I have, and also welcoming me into this community(by allowing me to create a free account to quiz the people in the lifelong trade/journey about what I seem to have gotten myself into). Thanks again for reading. I am excited to become a part of this particular community!
One of the techniques I'd like to improve on is the proper fitting of bridge feet. I get the theory of a perfect fit, what I'm having trouble with is the technique to accurately hold the bridge in place during the fine fitting process. I find I rock the bridge which leads to inaccurate markings during fitting (i use graphite on paper to transfer the high spots). Any advice, tools, fixtures and techniques you can share would be helpful!! Best, Chris
