      Forum Update *UPDATED*   12/30/16

      If you are a Maestronet member, you will likely have noticed a major upgrade to our forum software. This new software improves on a number of areas - one of the biggest is mobile support. This new format is responsive, and so will work nicely on browsers of all sizes. Other improvements will be forthcoming shortly, including SSL for the entire site. A few notes that will help you with the new setup: Your username for logging in is now either your screen name, or your email address - either will work. Your old username will no longer work. When typing a message, the system will periodically auto-save your content as you type. If you lose connection, or return at another time, simply to back to the conversation or thread, hit the Reply button, and your saved content will be there ready for editing. There is a link at the top right of every page labelled "Unread Content" which will show you in a nice timeline view new content. The site can send notifications to your browser, but this can be turned off. Have a look around and check out some of the new features. If you notice anything off, post in News, or PM Jeff or Glenn and we will look into it. Happy New Year from the Maestronet Team.

Anton Schuster

1 post in this topic

The lable in my violin reads "ANTON SCHUSTER Hand Made Germany. My mother played it in the fifties/sixties, so I know that it is at least that old. To my knowledge, there are no serial numbers or identification marks, besides the already mentioned lable. There are very few scratches and the redish varnish has little or no cracks, although there is some yellowing which I suppose is simply due to wear. When I buy new strings for it or show it to another violin player, they sometimes cannot decide if it is a full sized violin or a 3/4 sized one. It seems to be in-between. the sound it makes is naturally a little louder than the other violins in my orchestras, but still very rich. I am curious as to when my violin was made (how old it is), it's approximate value (I know you would have to see it to know exactly how much it is worth), and if, perhaps, Anton Schuster made other violins of an odd size. Any information I could get would be appretiated. Also, please e-mail me any information you post so that I will be sure to get it. Thankyou, Charlotte. clttyner@hotmail.com
