  2. That's OK. Just asking. For the record, I'd pass on the fiddle. You can do better.

  5. I would call it High Risk, Low Reward unless it is really cheap.
  6. I am still waiting on 1/3 of my Eastman Fall Billing order. All cases.
  7. Yes. I have one in the shop right now for rehair with the same arrangement.

  9. Maybe you don't want to start with a Long Pattern Strad. Perhaps something more standard.
  10. Accessories - String King Web Shop - music accessories from Aquila, Despiau, Fiedler, Herdim, Stretto, Wiessmeyer, Wittner, Milo Stamm I have found the tailpieces and chinrests to be acceptable, but have not purchased a fingerboard from them.

  15. I would consider outside or inside of the bridge foot dangerous, and perhaps too far back from the bridge as somewhat dangerous. If you don't know how to measure these things you should consider a visit to a luthier.
  16. Buy the violin, not the label!
  17. I didn't say that it was bad...
  18. One of these was listed earlier this week and sold quickly, and I realized that I had one, too!
