Buy American!

Recommended Posts

As I understand it, things in the collecting arena are starting to turn in the direction of early 20th c. American violin makers. Ever since pknorr bought out all the Marknukirchen fiddles (aw, just joshin' ya PK!) the rest of us have had to figure out what else to appreciate that has been historically underappreciated. To that end I believe Jesse has been blazing the trail on Ebay, so I wanted to ask him for his opinion on these violins.

I prefer not to comment on ongoing auctions unless it is clearly fraudulent. After the auctions are over, I would be happy to give my opinions. But, honestly, I am just guessing based on previous experience. I never know how good something really is until I get it-even then it takes a while to really appreciate something.

When I begin to realize how good a fiddle I have is, it is an exciting time. Every once in a while a great one comes along, even in a popular price range. The great ones are less than 1 in 50 though.
