Restoration of a violin "Ramón Parramón 1931 en Barcelona”
This instrument suffered a blow on the scroll and its handle was loose. Examining carefully, it was seen that the upper cleat was cracked, so a simple re-bonding was not enough to save the problem.
The box was opened and the cue removed completely.One of the contraaros was loose, and part of the ring detached so the whole set was returned to its place with a lot of patience and a little bit of glue.
The rest involved re-fitting, respecting the original inclination of the handle, gluing it, screeding the edge of the scraper and varnishing, trying to adjust as best as possible the color of the new varnish to that of the original.
Once the upper rings were secured, I constructed a new block with the rings properly arranged, I adjusted it to the rings and to the bottom and I encolé it in its place.Then it was rounded and the box closed again.
And this is the result, this beautiful violin ready to play.
