Scot Tremblay commented on Michael Schreiner's status
"The last Panormo I worked on was from 1835. The fingerboard had a uniform 20' camber/arch from the nut to end of fingerboard at the soundhole. This seems to be fairly consistant with the half dozen or so others I've looked at or worked on."

"Those that I have seen are cambered but it's fairly gentle. I can't give you a specific radius but it's greater than a typical steel string. The ones that I do are around 25"."

"I am doing fingerboard work on a 1831 Panormo. It is in rough shape. Is there a consensus on the type of arch he used - or even flat?"

Chambure Bridge

"I meant to attach this to my response to Feiga's question about the Chambure vihuela bridge, but it worked out his way. It is a photo of my copy of the instrument. "

"Hi Feiga, I was in the Paris museum when Carlos Gonzalez was finishing his drawing of the Chambure vihuela. It lay open on the bench next to mine. It was a marvellous and fascinating experience. Shortly after I built three copies. At first sight the…"

"I saw Pavel Steidl and Bernard Kresse last weekend in Cleveland. Steidl played a Stauffer by Kresse who spoke the next day on his guitars."

"Hey Michael, I get them from Rubner in Germany. Ask for "Halsschraube fur Gitarre". I think they are part number 150-000-504.   Rubner also handmakes the Stauffer style six to a side tuners (Staufermechanik) in both Brushed…"

Profile Information

About me:
I have been building lutes and early guitars for 40 years. During the last 15 years I have concentrated on theorbos, archlutes and baroque guitars. Occasionally I have had time to build a late 18th century or early 19 century guitar; Aubert, Benedid, Lacote and Stauffer. I'm also writing a blog on my building activities; http://schreinerlutesandguitars.blogspot.ca/

Hey Michael, I get them from Rubner in Germany. Ask for "Halsschraube fur Gitarre". I think they are part number 150-000-504.

 

Rubner also handmakes the Stauffer style six to a side tuners (Staufermechanik) in both Brushed nickel and brass. Rodgers are still the best but these are very good, are delivered in a timely fashion and at a reasonable cost. The photo here is one of their brass sets. I like to believe, in my own little world, that  I was instrumental in getting them to re-issue them a couple years back (In actual fact I think a number of early guitar makers were) so I let everyone know about the tuners so they'll keep them in their cataloque.

Hello Michael, I just wanted to say thank you for your blog!  I am building a lute in evening classes and I have found your blog very interesting.  I am also making a mould at the moment so the most recent post is very well timed!  I look forward to seeing the progress on the Jauck lute.

Hi, Michael. Welcome to the early guitar site. I'm playing Piccinini on your 10-course. I'm steadily working through as many pieces as can be adapted to the instrument. Piccinini sounds very good on the Unverdorben. Thomas

Welcome Michael. It's nice to see a fellow Canadian luthier here. I look forward to your input.
