A Thank You to Metzler Violin ShopPosted: March 21, 2011
When we started this little endeavor, Danielle threw together my supplies. My violin is a 1925 Holm Viertel that Danielle owns. It was in a case I didn’t really like, so we used another case Danielle had lying around. Danielle also had a spare bow that she lent me and gave me a shoulder rest and a little thing of rosin. The only piece missing was a piece of cloth to put over the violin when you close the top of the case. For the first couple of weeks I just used an old folded-up shirt.
So I went to Metzler’s in Glendale to buy such a cloth. Unfortunately, those cloths usually come with a case, but he did have a spare silk violin bag. He thinks so highly of Danielle that he just gave it to m
So here’s my violin happily in its bag.
It does look a little like a mafia victim about to be thrown in the river, but it works perfectly and makes me feel a little more professional. Thanks Tom!
