      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.

Josef Deulin Violins

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info on a Detroit Maker named Josef Deulin? I just picked up one of his handmade Fiddles on Ebay for about$700.00 USD? I do not have acces to a list of makers. This Violin has had one owner since 1930. It is patterned after a Gudagnini.

You might want to search the archives of this board for his name and the words "Golden Strad"--a model Duelin produced or adapted in the 30's (regraduating imported instruments, etc.). As I recall Al Stancel and others responded to a question quite a while ago about those models. Also, Elderly Instruments (www.elderly.com) has had some of his instruments from time to time. Someone there may have more info. Good luck.

I happened to have owned a Josef Deulin when I was about 12 or so. Perhaps it wasn't a good example of his work, but if I remember correctly it wasn't a very good fiddle. I soon moved onto an (adequate) 19th century Saxon fiddle that I still use as a backup when my good fiddle is in the shop.

Sorry for the bad news--just calling it the way I saw (heard) it. And perhaps I hadn't acquired one of his better instruments...
