3年ほど前に、アルペジョーネの情報を探していたら、ニューヨークの近代博物館, Art-collectionにあるということがわかった。
さっそく情報提供をお願いしたところ、学芸員 ケネス・ムア氏((Mr. J. Kenneth Moore)からご丁寧な情報をいただいた。

次回のアルペジョーネ製作については、この博物館にあるモデルを目指そうと思い、再び情報を確認してみた。

Notes: In 1832 Staufer and his son patented a model for bowed instruments having the bridge positioned exactly at middle of belly length; therefore F holes are higher than normal. This instrument seems to have such proportions and so may combine the idea of the improved violoncello with the arpeggione, invented in 1823. The adjustable neck and patent pegs are typical for Staufer. (Rudolf Hopfner, March 1997.)

The stamped mark D.R.G.M on the endpin clamp refers to a design registered by the Deutsches Reichs Gebrauchs Muster, in effect until World War Two.

Constructed according to Viennese inch measure.

Catalogue information compiled by R. Hopfner (1997).

From Harvey Turnbull's The Guitar from the Renaissance to the Present Day: "In 1822 the German violin and lute maker George Staufer was granted a license to work in collaboration with Johann Ertel on improving the construction of guitars. Two of their improvements were the raising of the fingerboard above the table to create a better tone and the use of an alloy of brass, copper, silver and arsenic -- used by button makers in the manufacture of white buttons -- instead of silver or ivory for the frets to provide a more durable material." (See references card)

The arpeggione's adjustable neck is very similar to those seen on early C. F. Martin guitars (from 1834 on); C. F. Martin, the famous American guitar maker, worked with Stauffer (sic) in Vienna, becoming foreman of Stauffer's shop before migrating to New York in 1833. Stauffer was originally a guitar maker. See Mike Longworth, Martin Guitars; a History (1975), pp. 3, 16-17.59.105

"no reason to question its authenticity" F. Hellwig (May 1978).

For information on Staufer's invention and description of another arpeggione, see Georg Kinsky, catalogue of Musikhistorisches Museum von Wilhelm Heyer in Cöln, vol. 2, p. 174-175; further on Staufer in Paul de Wit, Geigenzettel alter Meister...(2nd ed., 1910), part 1, p. 14 and table 33; see also Anthony Baines, European and American Musical Instruments, p. 23, and ill. 141.
