“Online training is not less valuable than in-person training.”
Nine months ago, this realisation led to my initial idea of creating an online course in violin restoration. I am excited to be able to finally launch my Online Violin Neck Graft Course today. I hope that this course will become a valuable teaching resource for professional violin restorers at any stage of their career, Violin Shops and Schools.
I find ribstructure work among one of the most challenging in restoration procedures.
In this instance, the whole of the ribstructure and back had twisted quite badly but the main problem was, that the front had been pulled down in the C’s, distorting the arching of the central area of the front which didn’t just affect the look of it but had quite a negative impact on the sound.
New retouch on a cello top bout treble side rib. Sometimes, when the wood has been stained and there is no original varnish left, it pays to clean the area as well as possible before applying new retouch to get the best possible outcome.
