Please help me with a desicion about two violins

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

This is my first time on the Maestronet forums.  I enjoy

reading everyone's comments about violins.  I'm violinist 22

years old and have played all my life and I'm heading towards the

performing arts world more and more everyday.

My question is about two different violins that a family has

offered me.  They belonged to a concert violinist who passed

away and they want each to go to a violinist.  They'll let me

have either one for $1300.  I was hoping that some of you out

there could help me out by taking a look at these instruments and

tell me what you can see about them and which one would be the

better one to purchase if any. THank you so much for any help.

sincerely,

Nathan

Here is the first violin. It's a very unique instrument

with double purfling.

Inside is a label on that you can read: Gaetano Pasta Milanese

alieno dell Amati di Cremona alla Pallada in Brescia A1758

The backside of the violin is 36,0cm long.
