  1. Alright so I've been looking to find a violin to replace my cracked cheap student violin that I've had for about 10 years. Its a $400 Ideale without any real noteworthy sound. This instrument is for sale on auction and pricing is inching towards $200. I definitely understand the risk involved with buying from an auction site and I'm willing to take a risk if well enough calculated. The tag inside shows it having sold at one point for $1200 (in theory). Based on the pictures below and knowledge that a. the soundpost HAS fallen and b. the bridge might be missing entirely, what are everyones thou
  2. Thank you for the feedback! I'll keep that in mind
  3. Hm. Doesn't sound super positive. I held back on the purchase. Thanks for the advising
  4. This is a HOPF violin for sale on an auction site with about five hours left to go and I am looking for advice on the predictable quality of the instrument. My current violin is a cheap Gewa Ideale student model that I purchased new for about $400 maybe 10 years ago when I first began learning. I've wanted a nicer sounding instrument for a very long time and after dropping my case for the first time my current instrument has a split in the back seam. The already tinny sound has been made even worse and I've been looking for something old at a low price that I can take care of for years to come
