I hope most of you watched the Oberlin Acoustics Online Seminar presentation today. Lots of the things which have come up in this thread were addressed and discussed. Sam Zygmuntowicz was the main presenter, but there was a lot of input from some other really successful makers, as well as from some highly respected fiddle acoustics researchers.

I was impressed with his systematic data entered on a spread sheet for all his instruments in chronological order. And his efforts to see if patterns or trends were emerging on works better or worse.

Nice interplay of objective numerical physical measurements with subjective impressions.

I look forward to hearing from you after you've read the part about "Dazio" (p 133 in my copy)

Dazio is one of the funniest stories. The book is full of instructive and amusing anecdotes about the violin trade. The most shocking is the Turkish dealer who bought a violin collection, and as the train was leaving threw all the French instruments, including a Vuillaume, out of the window, saying "you can't travel with ballast".
