  1. We may never know since we don't know many things about this particular bow... But that raises an interesting question that comes to my mind - assuming the bow is a real Nürnberger, how does one determine the value of such bow and how much it actually is worth? Is there a go to source for people to track how much is too much ($800 in this case?) or just right or they're getting a good deal because this bow really is worth thousands of dollars..? I did a quick search on ebay and was delighted to discover there are several bows by this maker and they were listed anywhere from $1000 to $10,000

  3. Hello everyone, I'm new to the community and I wanted to ask a basic question - is it possible to find an good instrument that won't cost an arm and a leg at an auction like ebay, tarissio, etc..? I'm looking for a violin and bow(s) for myself and not to resell. Where should I begin acquiring knowledge/information on how to go about doing this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
