Joseph Liu Posted February 5, 2011 Report Share Posted February 5, 2011 The Christophe Landon calendar that came with last month's Strad has some interesting and peculiar back wood selection. Alessandro Gagliano cello 1725 - exceptional flame maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) Michele Angelo Bergonzi violin 1755 - violin with very small waist; kinda peculiar oppio maple (Acer campestre) Antonio Mariani viola 1650 - never heard of this maker; faintly flamed maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) Giovanni Battista Rogeri cello 1699 - exceptional flame maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) G.B. Guadagnini violin 1780 - slab cut lightly quilted maple (Acer pseudoplatanus or Acer campestre) Brothers Amati viola 1619 - lightly flamed maple (Acer pseudoplatanus or Acer campestre) Nicolo Bergonzi cello 1780 - highly quilted poplar? Guaneri del Gesu violin 1734 - flame maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) Giuseppe Ceruti violin 1835 - very lightely flamed maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) Christophe Landon violin 2010 - heavy grained flame maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) What do you guys think of the instruments and the back pieces?
