novice question needs quick answer

Hi everyone,

I would just like too say that i am enjoying the different topics and learning alot. As i've mentioned before i've inherited a great old fiddle and have been learning to play which is just awesome ( I play a second hand violin i picked up at a shop) In the meantime i am trying to learn and i have a question. I want to weigh my grandaddys violin. What is right or wrong???.......do I weigh the violin without the chin rest, strings ect ect or do i weigh the entire package? I want to know because it may help me learn more about it. I've determined its handmade due to the various thicknesses of the front and back...and f-holes as well as the purfling. Now i would like weigh it. Thanks, I hope brief questions like this are not a bother.. i do appreciate the time it takes so thank you ahead of time.

regards, mickey

Why you want to weigh your violin? What does the weigh tell you? Sorry for side tracking your question.

If I want to know if my violin is a better violin or not I would look into other feature of the violin. Wood, worksmanship, tone

quality, who made it, etc. I would use comparison method and play it

True, my older violin (150 years old or older) is in lighter wieght. My modern violin is heavier slightly (only I feel)

it is not enough to say for that reason ( small sample of just a few violins) I have never weighed any of them.

The light wiegh violin gives me impression that it is louder, but less focus. I am not sure if it is a good thing.
