Hi All, Here is a list of upcoming musical instrument auctions WORLDWIDE for anyone that is interested: (I think this is most of them but please let me know if there are others) In general I will only list auction houses that either regularly sell musical instruments or are selling over 10 instruments that are in some way interesting. I will try and be inclusive of all types of musical instruments but it is likely that these listing are more strings focused. For Auctions with small numbers of instruments for sale at general auction you are best to look online
I was browsing a site called the-saleroom.com in the hopes of finding a nice instrument listed in a live auctions. I searched for a Scottish violin hoping to find a few armature made or cheap antique Scottish violins. I found one at an auction in Glasgow which seemed like just what I wanted: 'SCOTTISH VIOLIN early 20th century' was the description so I waited for the auction and made a bid. The violin went for much less than I thought so was happy with my purchase but a little suspicious. The violin on the picture looked in good condition with yellowish varnish, a light wooden tail piece
