Hello and welcome to my blog! I have long believed that the secrecy and hoarding of information which has been the norm in the violin world in the past has done a disservice to everyone who cares about fine instruments including the secret keepers. Fortunately, this secrecy is rapidly becoming a thing of the past! As my friend Sam Zygmuntowicz said "we have reached the end of the age of privileged information". I intend this blog to be a forum for the kind of information sharing that raises the standard of our art/craft to the benefit of all. If you have any questions or observations that you think would be of interest to other visitors to my website, please post them here and I will do my best to respond.
Jim Ham
