      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.

Do you know anything about Oscar Hemmig?

2 posts in this topic

I have an Oscar Hemmig violin. It says No 833 (handwritten) copy of Amati, copy of 1902 (the 02 handwritten) and not much else other than his name. Any help would be wonderful. Thank you!

I have had several Oscar Hemmig -labeled violins.  One of them was a decent trade violin valued at around $1500 - $1750 and the other one was a lower grade with less care given to internal work.   These were German factory-produced violins of obvious varying grades that were advertised in the Montgomery Wards & Co. catalogs around the turn of the last century.  I  doubt there was an actual maker named Oscar Hemmig but I could be wrong.
