Hi guys, Now that I've completed violin number one and overall I am very happy with the tonal outcome (some of the finer workmanship and finishing obviously need much further improvement) - I am about to embark on violin #2. There's such a wide range of fittings available that I am a little overwhelmed for choice. Does the quality of fittings on a violin make a significant difference to its tone or playability? Do people tend to notice this? I am intending to use simple Guarneri style fittings for this violin and here is an example of a cheap set: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/350942393844?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Is this going to devalue a violin significantly?
I'm needing some help from the Maestronet gurus. I am making chinrests and need help with finishing them. They are walnut, as it is easily available and inexpensive, looks somewhat like rosewood, and is dense enough to not really dampen the sound, and am finishing them with beeswax and turpentine. For some people, though, the beeswax wears off quickly. I just found a superglue solution on another thread on here. Any suggestions at all would be most helpful and deeply appreciated. Thank you so much.
