    There are so many excellent violins out there new and old. No need to spend very much of less you want to chase a famous name. If you love the sound search no more.. A mutt can sound much better than a Pedigree. The best soundings violincost me $200.The rest is just vanity.

  12. Bass Bar Curiosity

    I was surprised to see a slit bass bar in a violin I recently purchased. It is from the 1920's. It has a powerful sound that is warm and sweet, however the tone is also abit unfocused and diffused. This might be a design suitable for the amateur violinist, it is not judgemental.
