    A violin

    interesting..... I actually wanted to see how people see prices base on visual inspection. Of course, I bought this violin in a well established shop, but I did wonder, how do people price violins if we put the maker aside? It was made by Josef bitterer (authenticated with papers, if it matters)

    Decided to buy this from a private seller around $2k+ it sounded good to me and it so easy to play with. So what you guys think? origin? it seems to the craft is ok on this one.

    I was the under-bidder (absentee bid) of this lot. I think it is genuine. long story short the top bidder defaulted, and this particular lot is offered to me with a hammer price of 15 percent rather than 25% directly through the auction house. I was wondering was there something that the previous bidder saw that I missed which made him withdraw his bid. A Fine German Violin by Paul Knorr, 1957 - Jul 14, 2021 | Guernsey's in NY (liveauctioneers.com) I was comparing his work and it looks like it is close to similar, I could be wrong.
  5. There are times, where I felt like not practicing at all (and this hinders my practicing in so many ways). Maybe because I work full time and do a lot things besides practicing (going to school). I usually practice on average an hour a day (I am not a professional player). It also feels like doing the same thing everyday (same routine). Do you guys have some advice? what do you guys think of giving a day or two off and how will you go about it? maybe I am feeling burned out?
  6. What do you mean by "English workshops"?
  7. Any one can tell about this particular violin maker. I have one in position. Thanks in advance kind strangers!
  8. This guy is offering me this klotz family violin. I am hoping if someone can verify its authenticity
