  1. Ebay has one that looks to be in good condition for 3 grand: https://www.ebay.com/itm/334132347358?hash=item4dcbd701de:g:TPQAAOSwdAdhLoMi
  2. Jeez! Sold for 33 grand! Guess the soundpost crack didn't hurt the value TOO much!
  3. Seven year old kid playing at some competition, but what is she playing? To me it looks like a piece of maybe French factory junk complete with a broken corner. All I could think was would she sound any better on a Strad or Guarneri?
  4. Has anyone ever documented the effect of soundpost cracks on an instrument's sound? I mean, looking at that photo, I have a hard time imaging THAT could do much to the sound.
  5. Has it been stripped and revarnished? What is with the "splotchy" appearance of the varnish?
  6. P.T. Barnum would be proud.
  7. One needing some TLC sold recently at Goodwill for $3600: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/127080718
  8. .;..featuring Janine Jansen: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9917467/Twelve-Stradivarius-violins-worth-146m-combine-record-expensive-music-ever.html
  9. I could see Bakelite as a possibility.
  10. Anyone know what it SOUNDED like? I could care less who made the instrument. I would just want it to SOUND like it's worth 50-60 grand.
  11. I considered "model" but nothing there looks like a "d."
  12. Okay, first there's a large brand saying: "reproduzzione antonius straduarius andreas morelli" ...and below that is a label saying: "andreas morelli hand-made reproduction antonius stradivarius anno 1724" ...and on that label is written -- see the photo. I can make out "violin" and "serial number 792" but what are the first and third words?
  13. I don't get it. It says it sold for 16,000, 18,800 with premium. However, they SAY the premium is 20% which would be $3,200, so the WITH premium price SHOULD be $19,200. Did I miss something?
