Violin #2 "The Schroepfer"

Schroepfer back and mould


I bought some used violin moulds and clamps off ebay which I reshaped to fit this violin back.



Notice on this form, the corner blocks where only cut on the "C" bouts and not on the upper and lower. The ends of the "C" ribs will get cut after they are glued to the corner blocks. This allow a perfect fit of the upper and lower rib to the "C" rib.



The Schroepfer back was complete but the thickness was over 6mm in some places. I regraduated to the specifications from Sicconi's book, "The Secrets of Stradivari".
