Haha. Give me 13 years. Wink 

Though I might get around to putting me playing Amazing Grace up somewhere, I was thinking about making a soundcloud or something anyway. Smile 

Kan det være fordi den mangler en streng? Hvis ikke så får jeg ta en titt på det.

at den mangle en streng kan være en grunn, men det kan bare være at den har logge ubrukt lenge Shrugging trykke fra strengan e snær 35 kg.. og du vil ikke at det skal være feilbelasta..fordi den som sagt kan skvette ut.. 

put up amazing grace, though i can't help u much if i can't see your playing Smile

Wow, nearly didn't recognize you there. Very Happy Also liking the giif.

I'll see what I get around to when I'm done with my exam. Nod 

Leste akkurat litt på det. Så mye å passe på. Shocked Jeg tror den ble satt i spillbar stand for ikke så lenge siden, men jeg skal ta en titt når jeg får ordnet den siste strengen. Takk for råd. Wink 

Sa du du hadde tentamen i morgen?

Of course I can. Very Happy 



I'm glad you guys liked it. Smile 

It used to belong to my grandfather who played violin, but that I sadly never got to meet. So it's certainly been played. I think my father put it in playable condition not too long ago, but he never really got around to playing it.

I got a bit inspired by a couple of things, and you as well Nora Wink, so thought I'd give it a go. And I've really enjoyed it. Very Happy   


Jeg måtte titte litt rundt for å finne det ut, men var dette det du mente? Smile

I thought you were vying for the "fjordlandian translation" category at the awards. Laughing 

I'm sure you know what it means. Nod

yes, that was what i meant blue Smile it looked as it was a little askew Smile den va litt skev.. Laughing i suddenly realised my bridge had become really leaned over, probably because i had just fitted fine tuners to it and it was a long time since i had played the violin. anyhow, i am glad i fixed it before it broke/shot out because the fine-tuners(pegs) are resting on it and if it brakes it can snap nice little marks in the violin, and i don't want that.

Shocked Laughing

I'm glad I don't pick up on those kinds of double entendres.

Great, I was kind of afraid it requiered a bigger fix. Will get around to it. Smile Fine tuners do sound great though, because tuning the damn thing.. Rolling Eyes 

Actually, I know just what you're talking about. I have like a free bridge on my guitar as well and that fell off once ... during a concert. That was a shock I will tell you. Laughing 

Would you still say it's deeper than the average violin?

It says Furst or something on the back, though that probably won't tell you much.

Post by Norc on Thu Dec 05, 2013 10:51 am

double entendres?!

no, it's just a minor thing, it makes it easier to tune too..
well, there are many opinions on fine tuners and not though. some say they reduce the sound because it makes it "heavier" while some doesn't mind, because it is better to be able to tune it without so much trouble. 

i can't say if it's deeper, because the new photo isn't totally on the side. is there any writing inside the violin? (look inside the f-holes)

Oh, I just reread Halfwise post.

It does look a bit precarious doesn't it. Embarassed 

Though it wasn't really. Smile  I put it there while sitting down, it was perfectly balanced and I only stepped back two centimeters for a second so my feet wouldn't show up in the picture.

I'll have a lot of time from about the middle of next week. I'll see what I can get around to. Wink

I felt like contributing to the discussion, but as I know nothing about violins and classical music, a smiley will have to suffice Laughing

Yeah, good find Ringo. Nod Be aware I don't know all that much about violins either.

I went looking for one as well, but all I could find was this:



Which doesn't really capture the same spirit. Laughing 

Had another look at the violin. I tuned the three remaining strings up and moved the bridge as in the video. So easy. Thanks for the advice. Very Happy Now I just have to get around to buying some new strings.

It turned out to be a Hopf violin. With just Hopf stamped inside and by the nut.

Cool. Very Happy 

As far as I could find out online Hopf was a german violin making family who's violins are now mainly used by Bluegrass players because of their sound. The one I have is probably a cheaper copy though.

"Good learners instruments," it said. "But not for concerts." Shrugging Laughing
