[cane Dom = came from]

Rubbish. The term came, ultimately, from performers -- from Joseph Joachim in particular. Hill and Hart both obsessed about tone, as did performers.

Had they created that term to sell fiddles, it would have been applied to the productions of 1670-1698 (and 1720 to the end). Go back and Read the Hill book on Stradivari complaining of how difficult it was trying to sell a Strad when the architecture of it did not display "a certain apparent flatness -- an impartial trial of its tone being out of the question. The eye has decided." (quote from memory)

A432, ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN PAGES of this thread happened before you even joined Maestronet.

We all breathed a massive sigh of relief when it fizzled out.

ARRRGH!!!!  Did ya notice, we just added another page already. If all the new people who weren't here on the last go-round start pitching their rubbish in, it might double, and hit 222.  Oops, that suggests that after a couple more restarts, this rough beast might be lumbering toward 666.............  :blink:

Help prevent the Apocalypse.  Stop adding to this thread.  :lol:
