  1. I sold a fine (and very rare!!) Joannes Gagliano c1790 last year. By chance I have another c1800. Similar to Joseph in quality. I'm not feeling it with the violin pictured..........
  2. As someone whom buys 6-8 new instruments each time I visit Mondomusica...sadly I won't be going. Unless a Vaccine is found. No one has enquired about violins under £100K with me in the last 3 months........I have sold some top end stuff, but business would appear to be dead as a Dodo. Musicians need to hold onto their money........! For obvious reasons.
  3. With £10K I would be buying a new violin. You will get more violin for your £ . Unless you want to pay a premium for an average antique.
  4. Leandro Bisiach for $80 000 is a bargain...........nothing stupid in buying his extremely fine work!!
  5. It's Frere if you are buying and pere if you are selling ;-)
  6. I played the Pressenda....sounded horrible IMHO
  7. looks good to me.....
  8. yes, early work good..later work falls away somewhat!
  9. Bows made by Bultitude during his Hill period are really fine. However, I've seen probably 50+ post Hill bows and yet to see something that is even close to todays top makers.
  10. makes it hard to buy and sell Poggi now.......
