@steveduf 

Link for wikipedia info

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik.....zo_Storion

This has a video of someone playing one:

I couldn’t find supertone. But I was wondering, could it mean that in 1931 this D H Steger dude did something to it to give it “super tone”? So that label is just letting future buyers know that  this violin was altered to give it supertone?

 

They call me, “Mellow Cello”

Thank you!  I couldn’t anything, must’ve been reading the name wrong.  I bought this the other day.  Their description was horrible and no pic of the label.  Now I just need to determine if it’s real.

heres how it was listed...

It looks like a heavy duty tailpiece like my German made Andrew Schroeder cello has.

@steveduf and others.  My guess is that the restoration work involved scraping some of the material off the plates and perhaps reducing the mass of the bass bar.  I think that work is now called regulation.

@AndrewH , hope you’re back playing...

All...

the violin is old with a lot of wear and repairs...

the labels appear old...

but even so, fake labels have been around forever,

still will be fun exploring possible authenticity.
