Hello all, Just wondering if anyone out there is eyeing the current Amati.com auction listings. I am a complete novice but have seen a few nice bows and violins. Any opinions/thoughts on the following lots. I haven’t been able to attend the viewings so going on my gut instincts. Lot. 73 I really like the look of this bow and the low reserve suggests it will hit a bidding frenzy? My hunch is it’s a nice JTL bow. Slight warping can be straightened so not an issue. I think it will reach about 1,200 euros (my guess) Frog looks nice and flush. good condition. Lovely head in my opinion. Wood looks to be good quality from my eyes. Lot. 71 Lovely looking Hill bow. Clean repair to back of head. So for a player it will be a good value. Good Broken bows are still sought after so I think this will get a good price. I have a repaired Lamy pere that I bought on the cheap and works a treat. Lot 65, 66 two nice childrens violins. I think both will have a good tone. Bargain price for my students if I can win either of these. Problem is they sell for much higher in Japan so I will be up against the big guns. Lot 9. Betts violin looks nice although not sure of the starting price. This is just my humble beginners eye opinion. Any experts please feel free to offer pearls of wisdom. Thanks,
