I decided to build a violin in foreseeable future and before I start I want to create set of drawings to follow (and I can share them with you here) and perhaps even some 3D arch models later if time permits. I prefer look of del Gesu, the middle bout is much more sexy than Strads and I happen to have the Kreisler poster so I decided to give it a go. This may take months or even years depending on detail to be included but I will post as will progress. My sources so far are: - Kreisler poster (scanned into computer) - Excellent hi-res pics from LOC (with some measurements included -f holes, stop, scroll, edge thickness) - Pics and measurements in description from Tarisio - Addie's drawings here from Maestronet that feature mould outline, f-holes and scroll template I gave them a brief look and found some notable differences between numbers in the poster and LOC files. I guess it is hard to measure worn scroll so tiny differences can be expected but some are more than 0.5mm off. Most concerning are the back dimensions : Tarisio says - 355-168-112-205 but the poster (said to be accurate) is 353-167-107-203. (Perhaps the Tarisio numbers are over-the-arch?) I'm not completely sure now if I want to make drawings with all the asymmetries of original or adjust them for a "generic" "modelled after Kreisler" model but sure enough I would like to know what is the true size of that thing so start with... Anyone with hands on experience here to provide some reliable insight?
Folks, I've been approached by someone wanting a lira da braccio! I know of several, including the da Salo and Giovanni Maria in the Ashmolean, as well as the Linarol in the NMM. The Ashmolean has the Hill drawings of the Maria, but other than that I am not aware of any good tech data on one of these beasts. I'm hoping some of you will be able to point me towards additional resources, comment on the quality of the Hill data, or talk about your experiences making a lira. Thanks so much!
