A little Older Book, but a good one
2013年11月1日 - (Amazon.com)
This is a little older book, however the content is great, the diagrams are full size, detailed, and more than what is necessary in order to make a violin. I used the diagrams from this book as a companion to "The Art of Violin Making" which did not have any diagrams or plans, and came as a surprise. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a good set of directions and a great set of full size plans. Take these to a copy shop and they will make a few copies of each that can be used as templates and glued directly to the forms while making them. Well worth the price.
Good actual "hands on" violin building book, but using power tools
2010年1月28日 - (Amazon.com)
I've learned from each of the violin building books I've purchased (this is my 4th). This book, by Wake, is a very practical "hands on" type of almost cook book, telling exactly how to do each step. He doesn't get into the why's of what you are doing too much. There is also a brief section on building basically an electronic device to measure the violin top and back plate vibrations, which I found interesting, but perhaps a bit dated (I'm an engineer that used to use log/log paper to record data a long time ago) That being said, it looks like it would work, and perhaps be helpful to validate plate thicknesses, if you actually took the time to build the device. From what I've seen, there are easier ways to accomplish the same thing nowadays, if you are into the whole plate tuning by outside vibrations thing (as opposed to just using tap tones and flexing the plates, and feel). I also have the Ossman 2nd edition "Violin Making" bookViolin Making, Second Edition Revised and Expanded: An Illustrated Guide for the Amateur, which is good in his "go for it" and don't be too afraid to screw up - its just a fiddle, just start building, enjoy the process, and see what happens attitude, which I think would be great for folk builders. I have "Violin-Making" by Juliet BarkerViolin Making: A Practical Guide, which is a good resource too, and like the title says "a practical guide" but comes from a "professional maker" so there is a lot of good tips and advice in there. The best book, and if you can only get one, drop the big bucks and buy "The Art of Violin Making" by Johnson and CourtnallThe Art of Violin Making. Great all around book on the history, how to, and excellent pictures, but it costs about $100. I think its worth it though, as it is really complete, and is probably the base of where a professional builder started when he/she went to violin building school a long time before becomming a professional builder (saving us the thousands it costs to go to the actual school). Also, I haven't checked out the internet too much, but there is an excellent fiddle building tutorial on Youtube, and a lot of blogs, etc. and most local builders will answere questions. There's a lot of different ways to skin a cat ... and not everyone wants the same type of fiddle/violin anyway (some want a metal string fiddle sound/flat bridge, etc. Some want a mellow viola type tone, and some want a concert hall solo screemer - but most everyone wants something with resonance and a moderate level of pleasurable tone, and something that feels easy for them to play/good setup)
