Violins



Lots of work.
Over years of time.
Mediocre workmanship.
Have no clue as to sound quality.
Haven't cranked them up to tune yet.
The pochette really could use a smaller tailpiece.

One of my ugliest violins is actually being used by a violinist because she thought toe tone was very good.
Better than her expensive store bought one.
I still need to put a soundpost in the violin and move the one in the pochette.

Dealing with soundposts is impossible.

Went to a concert Sunday.
Had lunch at Julia's in Wallingford.
Listened to a great performance of the Sibelius violin concerto.

Hallo, Lane!!!!
Beautiful instruments!!!!!!
If they sound as good as they look, people will be putting "Lane Savant" in the same sentence with "Stradivarius"!!!!!
Tschüß,

They won't sound as good as they look.
They don't even look as good as they look.

The sentence will be "Lane Savant certainly is no Stradivarius"
