buying a violin

Recommended Posts

I am looking to purchase a violin, willing to spend

~ $10,000.

I have the names of several dealers in Philadelphia and

NY.

Does anyone have any advice on how to go about purchasing

the instrument, how to deal, how to negotiate the trade in?

Does anyone have anything (critical or commending) to say about

any of the dealers in these cities? Are there any that

I should skip over?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Consider buying something with some age and good future upgrade potential. I see a good future for the best Roth violins from the 1920's as well as the best Collin-Mezin violins from before the turn of the last century. These instruments should more or less fit your budget and there are other good prospects as well.

What do consider the "best" Roth violins from the 1920's? I have been looking at a 1929 Roth that the dealer wants $3500 for. I believe it is an Amati copy as opposed to a Strad copy.

Certain Strad and del Gesu model Roth's from the 1920's are the most desireable. Amati model violins are in considerably less demand.
