Howdy ,

 Ever wonder if there's any markings inside yer violin not seen readily ?  Any cracks that don't show outside ? Old repairs / patches ?

Several violins I've inspected / worked on had un-repaired cracks in both end blocks ...no wonder they wouldn't hold their tuning ...

Here's a pic of the lights I use ..note that the small light will not fit into the F hole but the big one does for thorough inspection ...mirrors come in different sizes as well... violin-1267

Which of your lights work the best Tucson1? I have one but it's not all that powerful.

I'd like a cool light like this to get in there and check stuff out...but I guess it is only curiousity...not like a real need. Cool pics.  Thanks for posting.
