Default Alto Violin da gamba and on arm

I shared with you on another thread tales of choosing a bow and mentioned the names of these very helpful people. Someone mentioned previously on this forum about da Gamba, Baroque bow etc. Sorry I don't know whether there's a cool name for on-arm. ('da spalla' on-shoulder was mentioned to me by Ben but I only saw clips on Youtube.)

Ben said to note that not many people have dimensions that can hold it viola like.

Here are some pictures (permissions granted (shyly) by the stars).

I may have to upload this file by file, much reduced from the original size.

Default Welcome to the Forum!

How nice to see activity on the forum again, and especially on the subject of the alto. Over the years it has surprised me that many of the people who have expressed strong feelings about the instrument one way or the other have never actually played one. Jamstrings is doing us all (and "the cause") a great service by his/her first-person experience. It carries a kind of weight that the others out there on the periphery don't have.

Having the instrument in Australia and seeing the excitement it has caused is refreshing, and serves to underline the old comment that it takes only a few dedicated people to change the (musical) world. Our forum is small with few members right now, so I hope the rest of you lurkers will chirp a welcome to our newest member.
