Operating as usual
“Cat brand, please.” Millant Deroux rosin boxes then and now. They stopped making the embossed tin a long time ago but at least they kept the (beloved by me) cello cat 🥰
In Memoriam : Rick Lohmann
Rick Lohmann of Santa Fe was founder and co-director of Santa Fe Talent Education, a non-profit music program dedicated to providing quality Suzuki music education in northern New Mexico. Among his many accolades, he was adjunct applied faculty at New Mexico School for the Arts, a regular member of Santa Fe Pro Musica, and a coach in SFPM's "CHAMPS!" chamber music program. Rick garnered over 30 years experience as a professional violinist, concertmaster, conductor and teacher of violin and viola at all levels. He became a Suzuki certified teacher at age 44 and logged over 250 hours of SAA Suzuki teacher training in both violin and viola.
Sincere condolences to the Lohmann family and to Rick's friends, students, and colleagues.
The little critters that eat your bow hair: the “bow bug”, a dermestid (A. verbasci).
If you find them (or their little carcasses) in your case, empty everything from your case, vacuum your case (be sure to get into all of the little nooks and crannies. Use your vacuum’s ￼crevice tool), place your case in sunlight with compartments open, Adjust the position of the case after a day or so that sunlight might hit as many areas as possible and…you might need a rehair as well￼. ♥️

Several weeks of customer work but now it’s time to feed The Violin Shop. Poor thing is running a little low on entry level 4/4 violins. Some very good entry-level instruments. These should satisfy it’s hunger 😁
Found a sound post in a viola today that brings up this esoteric ￼little corner of the violin world:￼
Louis Condax style soundpost. Mystifying luthiers since 1964. CASJ, Nov. 1988 https://purl.stanford.edu/kt439xz2985
Another photo of the Anne Cole ‘Valgus’ cello that I posted previously ￼
Setting a cello sound post patch. Strange bass bar￼ 😯
A violincello by Anne Cole of Albuquerque: The ‘Valgus’. Took a fall and the neck got knocked out. It came away cleanly from the body. ￼It will be fine but in the meantime ￼I thought all you might like to see this￼.
We have some new intermediate to advanced instruments from a new vendor on trial this month. If you or a student are looking to upgrade, please come in to try them. They will be here for three more weeks.
We are CLOSED this coming week:
April 26-April 30, resuming our normal hours on
Tuesday May 3.
Great program! Great teachers!
Our Program and Instructors In addition to instruction, students perform solo recitals, group concerts, community concerts in and around the Santa Fe area.
If you want to bee a better violinist 🐝 you’ll have to practice!￼
Roses, apple fritters and a thank you card today from a grateful customer￼. 🥰
A violin with a story written inside…￼
The rest of the story…￼
Don’t be like Yo-Yo Ma: go get your pegs properly adjusted by someone who knows what is what.￼ 😉

Old concepts in fine tuners; different countries, different points in times. All of these little weirdos (and a few interesting beauties) have floated in to my shop over the last 30 years.
