Betts Mold

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have a good outline for the Betts, or know which of Stradivari's forms it was built on? I just got my hands on some really nice photos of the instrument, but don't have a full sized outline. I could just blow it up on a copier, but was hoping to at least get a little more information about the outline before I began. Thanks!

No agreement, but have a look here

P, PB, PG, PM, the forms are all there, as well (I think) as the Betts scroll pattern.

There is a Strad poster of the Betts. If i remember correctly the Betts doesn't really fit any of the Strad forms perfectly. it looks like the rib garland was squished a tiny bit before the outline was taken -- it appears the lower bouts are a bit wider than the best-fit mould.
