Notes on Purfling
Prices per set (for one instrument). Violin and Viola (same) 3 pieces, Cello 7 pieces, Bass 10 pieces. Each piece is 81cm (32") long.
Fiber is black, Pear wood is somewhat reddish, and Maple is white or stained black. All violin purfling is made of three layers: dark, light and dark. Fiber purfling is generally recommended; the blacks are blacker, it is much easier to bend, and is much stronger (is better suited to binding the edges of the instrument, discourages splitting and cracking of the plates).
Sizes: 3/6/3 indicates that the outer black strip is 0.3mm and the center white strip is 0.6mm.
Italian style (standard): 3/8/3, 5/10/5, 5/15/5; French style: 3/6/3, 5/8/5, 5/12/5
