If anyone cares,

Number 1 is Asa Warren White, Boston 1870.

Number 2 is Andrew Hyde, Northampton, MA.

the third, is JB Squier, Boston 1909.


These makers are becoming more and more sought after and their violins are beginning to be recognized as the quality instruments they are, albeit often quirky. For those collectors and players who want an original, handmade vintage/antique violin with character and history, for a bargain price, I think violins by these makers cannot be beat. Nice examples can often be had for under $1000. Compare that to the price of a quality violin by a good maker today, and it is clear they are undervalued significantly. I think White, Hyde and Squier are some of the best of the Massachusetts makers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Thanks for your indulgence.
