  1. Hi i also play the violin in church, and ive been playing for 5 years now, and i have a brand new one full size SKYLARK is the brand name, it's a very good violin i started with the same brand and made it to all county with it. It's a orchestra where you try out for well i made it in 11th, 1st chair, with this type violin. So it's a very good beginner violin, i can sell a brand new one i have for 140.00 ((negotiable))

    it comes with a pathfinder case, all finetuners, strings, resin, and the bow for one price. So please concider this, i would be more then happy,

    thanx for your time...

  2. : I have purchased 20 violins of differing quality from sellers on Ebay. All of them required repairs, setup and adjustment, but that is why I bought them. I can get a decent German violin for $125.00 bucks or so, repair and set it up, and sell it for $500.00 at one of several shops that do my consignment work.

    : 15 of them were good quality student violins, 3 were very good French violins, 2 were actual master-pieces that the seller had not taken the time to research.

    - Can you tell us the 2 actual master-pieces? What were your diamonds-in-the-rough?

  3. I send a $8000 dollar violin to a maker for check up. He said that the distance from the tail piece to bridge is not right. And the tail piece will have to be shorten. Is it a big deal to cut the tailpiece? Is it going to change the style or the sound of the violin?

    One more question: Why does the sound post have to be behind the bridge?

    Thank you in advance


  4. I have started violin one and a half years ago. I started playing double stop with Sevcik's preparatory studies in double stoppinf, op.9.

    I am having trouble playing Third at high position. At certain position, I have to play on the the very tip of my finger, very close to finger nail. And I have hard time stretching my fourth finger at some places. Besides, I can't

    shift with ease. I feel tired after playing double stop for 20 minutes. I don't know how to solve the problem. How long is it going to take me before I can play double stops well?

    I really need advice on this!!!!!
