Registered members only may use this section for placing free, non-commercial ads for tangible goods. What do we mean by "non-commercial?" If you're an instrument builder you cannot place a free ad here to sell or trade your instruments. If you're a dealer you cannot place an ad here to sell or trade whatever you deal in. Use this section to look for items you want as well - begin the title of your discussion with the shorthand WTB (for Want To Buy), WTT (for Want To Trade), FS (for For Sale), or FREE if you have a tangible item to give away.

Please do not use the discussion here to engage in negotiations with a seller/buyer, nor ask the other party to contact you - you should contact that person directly. Their contact info is available by clicking on their name, "profile", "PM" or "e-mail" icons in the message.

You may NOT solicit to buy or sell services, for people to give you goods or services for free, to sell more than two of the same item, or to sell more than a couple of related items!!

MIMForum etiquette is to post the asking price for the item you are selling; to e-mail the buyer/seller instead of posting a message here, which they may not see, asking them to contact you; and to respond to all e-mail inquiries. Please do not leave your potential buyer/seller hanging.

Members may also use this section to solicit other members to join them in a bulk purchase to meet a minimum order, as long as the organizer is not profiting from the transaction, and the item being purchased in bulk is not sold in smaller quantities by any of our advertisers, or the bulk purchase being organized is a purchase from an advertiser. Please remember that any such transaction is strictly between the parties involved and the MIMForum cannot be responsible for any unfavorable outcome.

Sell your item? Earn a bundle? If you would like to send a small percentage of the sum to help support the MIMForum and keep it online, we won't object! You can use our subscription form and send any amount you wish. Thanks!

Your ad should be limited to 50 words and may contain non-commercial attachments. Links to graphics (that do not display as part of your ad) are OK as long as they are not at your commercial website. Please ask the sysop to delete your ad if the item sells or you find what you want, or post a message saying "Sold" (or whatever). Otherwise the shelf-life of an ad placed here will be 60 days. If you are interested in purchasing a commercial ad, please see our ad rates page. Please do not "bump" your ad, doing so will result in its immediate removal. Thanks.
Do not post your e-mail address, home address, or phone number!!

Luthier Workshop Liquidation - Lots of Violin and Viola Backs

Post by Anthony Zavala »

Eric Caldwell Luthier Workshop Liquidation, May

Hello everyone! Last summer a friend of mine reached out to begin liquidating the workshop of her late husband, who was a luthier. In this round of auctions there is a large amount of violin and viola wood, inclduding backs, necks, ribs which will be included, that was purchased some time ago and has continued to age. At some point in the future there will be auctions for cello wood as well. These wood were purchased at various locations, but a large portion were purchased at International Violin in Baltimore, MD, and as such have corresponding product numbers. That being said, the auction will be split up into two weeks, with tools and various violin and viola templates.

Week One
May 15th, 2020 7:00PM (EST) - May 22nd, 2020 7:00PM (EST) ... pg=&_from=

Week Two
May 22nd, 2020 7:00PM (EST) - May 29th, 2020 7:00PM (EST)

The link is the same for both weeks as it leads to my profile. If there is any interest in bulk deals, that can be accommodated via local pickup if done safely in the NoVA area. I hope that staying inside hasn’t driven everyone too crazy, and I hope that everyone stays safe as well. I hope it finds you well!

Anthony, your link is apparently incomplete and does not work. Could you please post a complete link?

UPDATE: The link appears to be fixed now.
