  1. Here is a summer project... wondering the origin. My guess is amateur American, Ca. 1930. The scroll is further than 6 o’clock, more like 7:30, or so. Ffs look like a first attempt. Though fully lined with corner blocks, the slight view of the c block looks not let in, nor mitred. The purfling also looks like an amateur, especially at the corners. It has some unidentified glue, a sound post patch, and well... let’s just say it was not expensive
  2. A student showed up for her lesson yesterday with six violins from various shops for us to try. NB- her current violin has a few Perfection Pegs which have started to fail. According to Perfection Pegs, they've never suffered a failure, but this is the second of my students' instruments that has started to slip after a few years. Rather than replace the pegs, we've decided to upgrade her whole situation. Among the violins was a curious looking fiddle from the 1950s by Harry Stoutenburgh, "Pupil of Sacconi". I found a cool little newspaper clip online that talks about how Stoutenburgh was self-taught until Sacconi was in his neighborhood looking for a fishing guide. After showing Simone a few of his favorite spots for trout, Harry showed the master one of his violins and somehow, out of that, finagled 5 years of quasi-apprenticeship, at the end of which Sacconi gave him permission to label his instruments as "Pupil of Sacconi". It doesn't matter too much, since, in this price range we are just comparing sound, but I was curious if anyone here could tell me anything about Harry Stoutenburgh and his violins.
  3. Does anyone know what the earliest work for violin by an American composer was? I can't find a definitive answer.
  4. Well...we have talked about fancy violins...and how many aren't all that expensive (in context)... So what about this one? $20,000? Reasonable? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1903-W-R-MCCORD-INLAID-VIOLIN-OREGON-MUSIC-HISTORY-/130562103894?hash=item1e661b9a56:g:rcUAAOSwLVZVqWkb
  5. I just wanted to share with everyone that there is a pre-publication subscription offer for ordering The American Violin Book before Friday, March 4th. If you order by then and use the discount code "DISC16" you get $50 off and your name will be printed in the book as a subscriber. Please follow this link for the website to look into the book and order: www.theamericanviolin.org -Thomas
  6. http://tarisio.com/auctions/auction/lot/?csid=2198077440&cpid=3279749120&filter_key=ad1a6b69bf83b1a4965df2a9a964db68 While perusing the latest Tarisio auction I found this interesting American violin lot 250. Unique purfling on the back, as well as interesting wood on the back. What do you think?
  7. Hello everyone. I have two violins by Butler, PA violin maker "Frank T. Cypher" and I am unable to locate any information on this maker. From a patent application I know that he was working in the 50's. That's all I got. Thanks!
