So I'm thinking more and more about purchasing a cello from a maker or seller online. And while recommendations for a reasonable place to do this are welcome, this post is mainly addressing my concerns for the delivery of said instrument. How are instruments shipped? (I'm in the midwestern US if that has any impact) What dealers ship reliably and pack them well? Do you guys trust online delivery and returns? Of course most sites claim to have integrity and to thoroughly pack and protect their instruments, but I'm curious if everyone's experiences are overall good or bad. Especially since Cellos are a lot riskier to ship than smaller stringed instruments. I've heard people say their setup was compromised, or that their instrument arrived safe and sound and even in tune. Thoughts?
Hey guys, I've searched google for info on buying violins in the white and have come up unsatisfied. I thought that directly asking the question on a popular forum like this one might help me get the answers I've been looking for. Which websites sell violins in the white/unfinished violins? I've seen the ones on international violin and a few other places but I would really appreciate the names and websites you've heard of or used to buy or view violins in the white. Thank you! Also, I'm interested in violins in the white to practice my varnishing skills. I'm into using spirit varnish and feel fairly successful with it so far (on my first violin), but if you have any tips or helpful techniques for applying spirit varnish, I'd love to hear them.
