have you ever tried changing the label on yer violin? well.....for some reasons, i.e modern brand, cheap printing, etc.. i change the label of my violin to make it look aesthetically correct! yes! i know that I'm not the maker of this violin, but i can't resist it, and I've done it! it's original label is "LAZER", and that sounded like "whut the??!!".....so, I changed it with "Ozmus Ferous"(my latinized name), and the words "anno domini 2012", well, I'm not the creator of this fiddle, but I'm the owner! so, i get to decide what i want to do with it....now, have you tried on re-labeling yer violin before?

here are the pictures:

the old label:

and this is what I've added:

my camera's a little blurry, but the new label says "Ozmus Ferous, Anno Domini 2012"

what do you guys think?

cheers! - ⁰ℨ

It is your violin so do with it as you wish. As for me I leave the original labels in. When I do a complete rebuild where every piece of the violin has come apart, I keep the original label in it's original position and put my label next to it stating repaired by.

i've added a label, not because of the sound, but because, this violin's gonna be mine for a very long time, and i don't want to have a heirloom for my future children to be an antiqued violin with a modern label.....so, it's more on the aesthetics when it comes to this labelings......

In any case, your label looks more thematically consistent with your instrument than the "Lazer" label. As the others have said, it's your instrument - do with it as you like.

"Lazer" sounds too ... 80's-glam-metal-band to be a brand for classical string instruments. Maybe something Bill and Ted would buy to play in their band, "Wyld Stallions." ("Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" circa 1989)

 

We should make up a list of equally inappropriate* brand-to-product pairings. Like:

Dragon's Fire brand antiseptic ointment, or:

Prancing Purple Pony brand Rat Poison

fainting-1344

(*inappropriate here means the pairing and not something my kids can't read, if you catch my drift. I had to self-censor myself several times on my first suggestion)

I was just joking, LOL! If i had an idea of "how label can help the sound" i would be serious... but not yet...

An antique violin with a phony label would be greatly devalued. It would be of 'unknown origin'.  And if it where an antique the label wouldn't be 'modern' anymore.

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm
