It's a few years ago to listen to the violin tone for the first time ... it may be over -expression, but the head is pure white and the soul is sucked in. I fell into a craving experience with such a mysterious experience, "I want to play that sound."
The violin history appeared in the world, almost completed, 500 years ago, almost completed. There are many mysterious parts, and a mysterious instrument ... The production process and the structure are basically the same, but each instrument has a special personality and has the qualities.
This theme"In search of the ideal tone ..." !!
I want you to discover a special one that suits you from the stringed instruments that exist in this world !!
I'm wondering about choosing a musical instrument ... I don't know which one to buy ... I thought I could help you, so I launched this project !!
Our shop is a used instrument specialty store. Of course, there are preferences, but used and old musical instruments that have been played for many years play a tasty and nice tone !!
Which country was born in which country, who was playing, and what kind of journey has you continued ... Isn't it exciting to think so!?^_^
Therefore, I summarized articles about stringed instruments for each item. I hope you find an ideal instrument and get a chance ...
[History of Cremona, Italy]
･ Why did Cremona become a violin sacred place!?
Who produced the existing "world's oldest violin"!?
There are various theories, the name of the Amati family's founder Andrea Amati is the most prominent candidate.
Stradivari, Guarneri, and Amati are famous as the old great producer of Cremona, Italy ...
Andrea Amati's feat was handed down to two sons, but Italy in this era was a political and military war. Excellent producers who are rampant with infectious disease are unfortunate.
Meanwhile, Nikolo Amati, a talented person in the Amati family, took over the tradition of parents and children as the third generation. It is said that the Amati family was in their heyday during the Nikolo era.
By the age of 40, Nikolo was overwhelmingly popular, well -known, and ability. 100 years since this era, the heyday of cremona violin production !!
It is also famous for raising excellent craftsmen with many disciples at that time!
That Antonio Stradibari, the founder of the Guarneri family, Andrea Guarneri, etc.
It is said that many craftsmen from all over Europe worked in Amati Kobo, and Nikolo was generously conveyed his skills and knowledge ...
As a result, Clemona, who produced famous craftsmen such as Stradivari and Garnelli, became a sacred place for violin production.
[The secret of the whirlpool and the tone]
･ The secret of the swirl!?
The swirl part of the violin ... "scroll".
Currently, most of the stringed instruments on the market have the same swirl "scrolling" as the old violin.
Occasionally you can see the shape of a lion and other faces engraved ... (^o^;)
and! This is a whirlpool, but it's a checkpoint when choosing a musical instrument !!
If you observe each one by one ... Hmm, something is different ...
That's right, a beautiful and delicate shape, rough and powerful scrolling, etc.
It is often said that Stradibari is polite and beautiful, and garneri is a rugged and powerful scroll.
There are differences in shape depending on the country of origin, such as Italy and France. The size, how to spread the swirl, how to engrave, etc. are judged, and when you become a skilled person, you can determine the generally produced country and age just by looking at the scrolling as "Pa"! (◎ o ◎)
Since scrolling is a part where the creator's habit is noticeable, it is easy to capture individuality and characteristics, which is also a point of appraisal.
Looking at various violin scrolling as "ji", it is also a good idea to play it and select an instrument !!
It's a really deep world ...
･ Does the swirl really affect the tone!?
There are various theories, but does scrolling actually affect the sound? (゜ ゜)
It's a mysterious part ... I feel like it doesn't affect the sound, but it seems that scrolling is part of the main body ...
Does the sound quality change with a delicate difference?
However, the violin with a wonderful scrolling is beautiful and the quality of the instrument is high ...
Scrolls have decorative implications, but some instruments have been processed by breaking symmetry for sound. Hmm ... it's still full of mysteries ...
[Story of stringed instrument bow]
Stringed instruments such as violin, viola, cello, and contrabass are classified as rubbing instruments. What is a rubber instrument? Hmm ... a bow is required to play a violin !! (^O^) b
About the bow ...
For the violin bow, about 160 to 180 horses (tailed hair) are used. Furthermore, horses are Mongolia, Canada, Italy, etc. ... The price varies depending on the production area.
Characteristics by quality, such as tone, volume, response, and strength, can be selected depending on the player's taste and performance style. Bow hair such as Italian, which is generally said to be good quality, has a good balance and has a positive effect on ◎ & tone!
The bow trunk (stick) is mainly used in Brazilwood and Fernambco ... but Fernambco is used for many high -quality bow ... why??
It has a high density, bending strength, and is strong in moisture, and has the property of a stringed instrument bow!
However, Fernambco is in danger of extinction and difficult to obtain, so the price of violin bow is soaring.
In recent years, carbon bow that boasts outstanding strength and durability has also become widespread, so many people are used for everyday lessons !!
The bow has evolved, and new products are being born one after another !!
The price is also easy ... Bow is as important as the main body, so I want to choose with commitment !!
At the stringed instrument corner of the TC musical instrument, you can also try a bow, so please find the USED bow of the bargains !!
[Wood to build a violin!?]
Stringed instruments are built on spruce (pine), horizontal and back plates are maple (maple), and fingerstems are ebony (ebony).
Except for parts such as adjuster, it is combined only with wood, creating a beautiful form and high texture !!
Naturally, there is a rank for the same wood ...
It is well dried, and beautiful heather eyes are treated as high -end materials and increased their value. By the way, what is a good instrument ...!?
Not only is it made, but the difference in the sound of the sound is wood!
･ Back plate -The story of the back plate of the vine board and the two plate violin ...
Although it is the back plate of the stringed instrument, most of the one -piece board (1 piece material) and two pieces of wood are bonded (2 -piece material) ...
By the way, it is said that one plate is more rare ... but really?
In general, one plate is more expensive. Compared to the one on the two plates, it requires twice the area, and it is difficult to secure the material than the two plates.
One plate and two plates ... both have advantages and disadvantages.
One plate has a higher risk of distortion of materials due to aging, but the vibration rate of the entire back plate is high, and the sound transmission is smooth !!
One of the attractions is that the whole tone is added to the overall tone !!
In addition, the two plates are less likely to be distorted due to the contraction of wood, and the symmetrical heather has a unique beauty.
It is difficult to judge the superiority ...
[Compatibility between musical instruments and bow ...]
Is it compatible with the musical instrument body and bow!?
When I started a violin for the first time, I couldn't understand anything, but now I feel like I can understand it.
I also buy and sell many, from introductory models to handhelds ...
I have tried various bow, but when I compared two violins in the same class with the same bow, I certainly felt the pronunciation and performance difference depending on the individual. The bow, the body, and the reverse pattern are also the same !!
Finding a compatible partner is a tremendous way ...
The third installment of stringed instruments! This theme "In search of the ideal tone ..." !! How was it!?
