【History of Italy · Cremona】
· Why is Crimona be a holy place of violin?
Who has produced "the oldest violin of the world" existing?
Although there are various areas, the name of Amati family is the name of Amati family as the most responsive candidate.
As the old great fabric of Italy Clemona, Straderbari, Guarnelli, Amatei is famous ...
Andrea Amati featured the two sons, but italy in this era is politics and military war suspension. Depending on the epidemic pests, excellent fabrics are unhappy.
Under such circumstances, Amati family and talented Nicolo Amati has taken over his parent and child's tradition as the third generation. Amati family is said to have been thriving in the Nicholo era.
When I was 40 years old, Nicolo had overwhelmed the other both popular, popularity and ability. 100 years from this era of crimona violin production full lines!!
It is also famous for having a lot of disciples at the time and raising an excellent craftsman !!
That Antonio Stradivari and the Starsian Andrea Guarnelli of Guarnelli House etc ...
It is said that many craftsmers gathered from within Europe worked in Amati Studio, and Nicolo is said to have conveyed their own technology and knowledge ...
As a result, Crimona produced as a leader and Garnery, has become a holy place for violin production.
[Swirl (Uzumaki) and tone secret]
· Secret of swirls!?
Violin's spiral part ... "Scroll".
Currently, most of the stringed instruments in the market is equipped with the same spiral "scroll" as the old violin.
I also see the shape of the face such as a lion, but ... (^ o ^;)
and! This swirl is a checkpoint for checkpointing when choosing an instrument!!
If you want to observe it by one minute, it's different ...
That's right, a variety of beautiful and delicate shapes, rough and powerful scrolls ...
Well, stradivari is polite and beautiful, and Garnelli is said to be a scroll that is florated in bonus.
Italian manufactured by France can also be seen in the shape of the shape. How to make the swirl and spread how to spread, engraving, etc., and when it becomes a skilled person, just looking as "Pack", it is possible to determine the approximate production country and age! (◎ o ◎)
Scrolling is a part where the producer's habit is noticeable, so individuality and characteristics are also easy to capture and be a point of appraisal.
I look at the scrolling of various violin, looking at "Ji" and try to play it again!
It is a very deep world ...
· Does swirls affect tone?
Although there are various theories, the scrolling does not actually affect the sound? (° l)
It is a mystery part ... I also feel like I do not affect the sound ... but it is a part of the body because it is part of the main unit ...
Does the sound quality change as much as the difference of subtle construction? ...
Just a great violin of scrolling is a great look, and the quality of musical instruments is also high.
Scrolling is also a decorative meaning, but there is also an instrument that has been processed by breaking symmetry for sound. Hmm ... After all mystery is full ...
[Stone of the string bow]
Stringed instruments such as violin, viola, cello and contrabass are classified as rubbing instruments (Satsugi). A rippling instrument ... A generic term for instruments that play a string with a bow. N-Conclusion ... A bow is required to play violin !! (^ o ^) b
About the bow ...
We use 160-180 horses of horses (tail hair) on the violin bow. Furthermore, the horse hair is Mongolia, Canada, Italy, etc. ... Various prices varied by production.
Quality characteristics such as tone, volume, response, strength, strength and type of player preference and performance style can be selected. In general, bow hair such as Italian producer is good, the relative balance is good, and it brings a plus effect on the sound and tone!!
Bow Stem (Stick) is the main material of Brazilwood and Fernambko ... but Fernambuko is used for many good quality bows ... why!?
It has high density, bend strength, and wet fernambuko is no other because it has a suitable nature as a stringed instrument bow !!
However, Fernambuco is in danger of extinction and is difficult to obtain, so it is also a concern that the price of the violin bow is also concerned.
Also, in recent years, the carbon bow that has excellent strength and durability is also spread, and there are many people who are used for your usual lessons!!
The bow is also evolving, and a new product is born one after another!!
The price is also Pinky ... The same as the main unit is an important performance item, so I would like to choose with the other side!!
Since the tc instrument stringed instrument corner is also possible to try a bow, please find the bows of bargains!!
[Wood to build violin!?]
The stringed instrument is built by the front plate and the horizontal plate and the back plate are built with the maple (楓), and the joy is an ebony (ebony).
Except for parts such as adjusters, combining with only wood, creating beautiful forms and high textures!!
Naturally, there is also a rank with the same wood ...
Good dry and beautiful 杢 is treated as a luxury material and value is increased. Good instrument ...!?
Of course, it is of course that the difference in sound is out of the sound of the sound First, the instrument is light with good materials and skilled craftsmanship!!
· Back board Hen ~ Single plate and 2 board violin backboards ...
It is the back plate of a stringed instrument, but one sheet (1 piece material) and the center of wood together at the center (2 piece material) are mostly ...
By the way, the one-piece plate is more rare value, but is it really?
Generally, one plate is made higher. Compared to the two-piece thing, it is necessary to make a double area of wood, and it becomes difficult to secure materials compared to the two sheets.
It is a single sheet and a two-plate plate ... There is a merit and a disadvantage.
One sheet plate is also high risk of strain of material due to aging, but the vibration ratio of the entire back plate is high, and the transmission of sound is smooth!!
It is one of the attractions that add a plump element to the whole tone !!
In addition, the double plate is difficult to generate distortion due to shrinkage of wood, and the symmetrical has a unique beauty.
It is difficult to judge the superiority and inferiority ...
[Instrument and bow compatibility ...]
Is there compatible with the instrument body and the bow?
When I was the first violin, I could not understand what I could not understand ... I feel that I can see it now.
I also buy several from the introductory model to handicrafts, and it leads now ...
I have tried various bottles until now, but if I compare two bayolins of almost the same class with the same bow, I felt the difference between pronunciation and performance by individuals. Bows, body, reverse patterns, of course, the individual differences of the body are considered enough, but I think that the influence of the bow is absolute!!
It is a tremendous way to look for a compatible partner ...
