JacksonMaberry Posted March 12, 2019 Report Share Posted March 12, 2019 Hey folks, It occurred to me that I have no idea how to make a violin without locating pins. It's how I was taught, and it works wonderfully as far as I'm concerned. That said, some historical makers associated with the Amati tradition I really admire didn't use them, like Francesco Rugeri and Jakob Stainer. I have a hard time imagining how to make a baroque violin, where the neck is affixed before the plates, without pins. Any of you makers/restorers/historians have some insight into how Rugeri and Stainer may have gone about it? Thank you J Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
