PKNORR CORNERING MKT ON PRE-WWII GERMAN VIOLINS

Recommended Posts

He may well be a jerk. So what?

The question here is has he actually fleeced anyone AS A BUYER, which I still find a nonsensical proposition.

And is there, in the opinion of those who do buy/sell on ebay, anything wrong with selling and buying under different IDs? Note that was a question. Not a statement of support.

Describing those who question your propositions as a "herd of sheep" doesn't do much to further the discussion.

But knock yourself out. There's always the Ignore button.

I've had personal dealings with PKnorr and I assure you he's NOT a jerk. He is, in fact, one heck of a skilled buyer on eBay and elsewhere. I have nothing but the highest respect or him. The notion that he is somehow a bad boy for buying the occasional violin from Music-River for less than some here on this board deem an appropriate amount is ludicrous. He knows what he's buying and what price he's willing to pay. He gets outbid fairly often, a clear indication that he will simply not buy any violin at any price. Wake up!

Well, well. I did not think that my original post on pknorr would unleash such a torrent.

Personally, I am impressed with Pknorr. He is knowledgable, shrewd, and a risk-taker.

Now, I present a challenge to all takers:

CAN ANYONE PREDICT WHICH VIOLINS PKNORR WILL BID ON IN THE COMING WEEK?

Don't think PKNORR never screwed up. He once purchased an old violin from Dallas area that I have chance to examine the violin from the seller. The final sale price was over $900 and the seller told me that he only paid $20 from an estate sale. I tipped him off and never saw the transaction completed. Regarding attic(addict) that sells junk violins, I don't know she (Debra) is PKNORR's wife. I bought an old violin from her and the description is incorrect. It's not returnable but luckily it's only $150.

Well, I just won an auction this evening. And, I feel like I must have bid on a poor violin because the now famous PKNORR did not even bid on it.

Well, we'll see in a few days how good/bad my bid was. I'm actually expecting more out of the bows.

He has a violin shop. his STRAD article got me interested. but he outbid me on several.. He was honest and said he felt they were in generally finely crafted but agreed that tone in his opinion was not as good as the better french makers
