I also have a full size viola - it is in excellent condition - as it was brought in to our studio just before my dad fell ill and remained in our inventory - purchased from either heinl & co or kessler violin co (chelmsford ontario) about 5 years ago - it needs to sing!!! asking $400 obo ivory fingerboards ivory chin rests bow hair - 15 packs - asking $50 asking $20 each or make me an offer for the lot if approved i will post many more new items - bridges, pegs, items for bows, rib wood, hand carving tools and so on- if you have a specific interest or questions please ask away! we are located in Windsor On. thank you!
  2. Hi everyone! It's been almost 10 years since I posted in this forum ... yikes! It feels good to be back after such a long break and I'm delighted to see things here going as strong as ever. I very recently started a Facebook Group called "The Art of Violin Pedagogy" to encourage exchange over this topic with other violin teachers. Sometimes I feel a bit isolated in teaching, and I thought that it would be fun and inspiring to connect with other instructors to share knowledge, ideas, thoughts and experience. You're all invited to take a look at the page and join if you wish! In writing here, it is not my intention to take anything (or anyone) away from this forum at all - it's a marvelous resource and I'm glad to have rediscovered Maestronet. The FB group is specifically for violin pedagogy! https://www.facebook.com/groups/355279351227763/ Thanks for listening! Aria
  3. Has anyone ever tried the small-batch Deja "Soloist" Rosin? What were your thoughts?
  4. Here you can follow me constructing the super-light violin. It will be the craziest thing I ever made and please don't take it too seriously. It is the violin maker joke from my workshop. But at least I am serious enough to make it the most professional way I can imagine. So following the footprints of Antonio Stradivari everything starts with a drawing. I decided to throw over board symmetry as well and came up with the funny design below. To save weight the length is only 351mm and all distortions follow the 10 percent rule which means that one f-hole is 10 percent longer than the other.

    Carved violin

    Hello Violin hunters. I have a violin that I bought for its great sound (not the ornate carvings on it). No masters of the violin world have yet to tell me where this could possibly have been made. Your suggestions with rationale could be fun. Here ya go. It has a Januarius Gagliano label. The scroll is rococo style while carved back is classical - maybe scroll was replaced. If you own one like it, we should communicate as I get more information.
  6. Hello Luthiers, Who is interested in a field trip to the mountains in Colorado to learn about and gather spruce and other tonewoods? This is Simeon Chambers. I am no longer in the business of tonewood, but have tremendous knowledge I can impart on a field trip where incredible spruce is found. Last year we obtained many bolts of excellent spruce. Moderators: I read the terms and conditions, I am not a commercial wood dealer anymore, nor a dealer in wood at all. If you want this in another category, please put it in the proper spot. Here is the deal. It will happen if there is interest, August 15, 16, 17. Thursday through Saturday we camp in the woods, near the spruce. We will have proper permits. People can stay in a town if they wish, instead of camping. There is room for up to 15 people. Reasonable fitness is good. We will camp at 9,000 feet. For details, I can be reached via email at sales@toyfishfactory.com or phone 303 507 5225
  7. I live in a country where we don't have any good luthier. Moreover, it's a hard deal to find a good violin, there's no music shop with normal violin (only cheap fake ones).. So I don't have any option except doing it myself. I will do it this way or another, but dunno the steps. Please don't judge me badly hahahah))) 1. As you see there are minor cracks. What material should I use to cover those cracks? Is it necessary to cover them? (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/po9jreixj https://imageshack.us/i/plY0MBn1j https://imageshack.us/i/plH2Zi2Gj 2. Most of the cracks are on the ribs, but ribs are covered with additional ribs, so should I remove them, or it's okay to leave them this way? (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/plSIOz4Bj https://imageshack.us/i/po33wiqAj 3. One more crack is on the neck. I think no need to do anything with it, still I took photo just in case.. (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/pmXujnWtj I'm about to receive hide glue soon for it, so far, that's the only material I have for now. Now, one more important thing. When I fix them and put the spruce back I need to varnish it. I saw in few videos I found that the luthiers put coating, then they varnish the violins. Or I might be mistaken. Just need to know what materials to buy to varnish violin, how many layers of coating, how many layers of varnishing. Actually I'm not aiming to make the violin shiny, would like to make something like this (link in the comment). I hope you'll share your experience, please....
  8. I have old violin which I am trying to restore for the emotional value it brings for my teacher. I need to get the rib liners which require replacement, I'm not able to source in India; any help welcome, I can pay the cost.
  9. Help on identifying this violin bow? Reminds me of Knopf school bows. Tip plate is made out of silver I think and is pinned. Underslide is pinned twice. Length is around 71.5cm without adjuster, 73cm with adjuster. https://www.flickr.com/photos/152316993@N07/albums/72157710193863751
  10. Hi, I knew very little about these instruments until I found this violin in my dads garage he considered it to be junk and rather than throw it I offered to take it in the hope of glueing it back together, having discovered how old it could be I instead decided to find out a little more before attempting an amateur repair. I have found it very interesting reading up on the subject in the hope of aging or even identifying who the maker may have been without success. There a lots of scribbles on the inside of the instrument some left by previous repairers including one that was carried out by a John Wilkinson of Barnsley in 1893.
  11. Has anyone ever tried the small-batch Deja "Soloist" Rosin? What were your thoughts?
  12. Happened across this violin. Can anyone tell me if it is any decent or not? Thanks!
  13. I would like your help if possible identifying this violin. I heard this is from 1840s. are all these pieces still origin? What is that sign on the back? thank you very much for all your help! Best regards, Regina

    Cordals

    Hello! Is there anyone here who knows a violin master who made the cordals with only 2 holes?
  15. I’m looking at a few bows on eBay, trying to upgrade from my very basic Chinese brazilwood bow to something a bit better. Do any of these look worth a try? Any tips on what to look for in photos would be much appreciated. Thanks everyone
  16. We have the possession of this antique violin, and so far unable to find its history. Can anyone please help us with the brand name, price range, age, or any information regarding this item? We could provide more pictures if needed. Regards Bobby
  17. I know this is most likely not a Lupot but I wondered if it’s possible to tell whether this is a decent bow from these photos? It’s not possible to try it before buying. I have a very basic Chinese bow so I imagine it’s probably better than mine but I don’t even know how to distinguish between decent pernambuco and brazilwood. Roughly what might it be worth spending on this and is it worth the risk? Thanks
  18. Hi, I am new to the forum and was looking to get some help. I am from Malaysia and have been learning the violin for 3 years. I am an adult learner and recently decided to give myself a treat by purchasing a new violin. I currently play on a violin from that I purchased in Singapore at a shop Gramercy fo $1500 (USD). I understand this is a Czech instrument but am not very sure either. I was looking at some Italian violins for 'investment' purposes too and have been reading up a lot. A seller in Malaysia has helped me narrow it down to 3 pieces: Giorgio Grisales: $19,000 Stefano Marzi: $18,000 Stefano Simoetti: $13,000 I understand that the Simonetti is a workshop violin from the maker Dimitri Atanassov. I have tried the violins and personally, I think it sounds as good as the other 2. However, I cannot find much information about it. Is this a new brand? Anybody have any information that you can share on this? Also, does it mean that even though the sound is about on the same level (IMO), the price will not appreciate? Thank you and any input would be much appreciated!
  19. Here is another one of those “French” violins, possibly from the same dealer that Germain purchased from mentioned in another thread. Thoughts? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163720171755

  21. I recently acquired this lionshead violin I am currently doing research on them and I just get more and more confused. As I stated in the title there is not identification paper inside the body of the fiddle that I can see. It may have moved however I do not have the tools to look inside of it. I want to know if there is any reason why I should not take this fiddle in to get repaired. Or if I should just set it in an auction on eBay for parts.
  22. I generally like Vuillaume a paris copies of violins. Tried some in the past, often without many bad things to say about them. I was looking to buy one and I came across this violin. It has vuillaume a paris stamped on the back and a label, very potentially fake. But I am entirely confused about what kind of physical proportions this violin has. I've seen a lot of violins but NEVER like this one. Does anyone have any clue? I think it must be too thin/weirdly shaped to be a strad copy. Honestly, I think it's kinda hypnotic. Lol
  23. Hello my name is Adrian. I have a stradivarius violin, it is very rare, it has a saying on the back imitating a flower, the material is very similar to nacre. If you could help me to discover the origin of this magnificent instrument. Thank you so much.
  24. Hello, I am thinking of purchasing this violin. The seller says it's French from early 20th century. Can anyone tell me about it? There is a small crack on the backside, going up the middle from the chin rest, and the purfling is damaged. How much would this cost to repair? Thanks! Kristen
  25. I would like to share a new free sheet music website. https://music.kemancilar.net You can find a variety of music for violin such as classical, pop, movie&series, orchestral excerpts as well as guitar, ukulele, piano, free gig music.
