Nice Scotish Cramond Fiddle on amberviolins

Recommended Posts

Wood butcher I am connected to many people here in the uk but if you look at my history, most will take you to bridge related posts as  I created violinbridges.co.uk, we are hopefully soon able to add our paper on the statistical analasis of our bridge  database,  culmination of almost 10 years work... 

As a fellow fiddle lover it’s always nice to share the unusual, where ever it may be. I love an odd scroll or button..

but your right it always the same people who seen to give the heads up in certain auctions, Dwight, and a few other regulars to point a few, but I think that’s probably more as that’s what we are watching and good thing..

Nice try violinbridges!

The Cramond fiddle is certainly wacky - it has a neck and scroll made of 2 pieces of maple laminated along its length and dowelled together. It's right up your street - you should definitely buy it.

thanks martin swan.

nothing a talented man like yourself could fix in a jiffy:)

yes looking at those pictures it is a bit of a curio/ boiler of a fiddle, perhaps be great for a  scotish traditional fiddle player.

will see, lots more auctions coming online with t2 and amati, perhaps even bromptons might push a quick sale out. Lots out there, have you seen anything that takes your fancy that you dont mind bringing attention to?

This is original to the construction and doesn't need fixing ....

I know this fiddle well - it's a nice example of the maker (very close to the one in David Rattray's book), and all the more interesting for having this 2-piece neck.
