What's so special about this violin?

It sound resemble much like a viola to my ear, what do you think? And no evidence that the recording was the same violin listed. :)

A seller can set a price any way he wants but a deal can only be made

if the buyer would agree. Many Czeck makers can make excellent violins.

How this particular maker could beat them all, it is something remained to be seen..

Once sometime ago, I had an opportunity of trying a Czcek violin in a shop, $2K-$3k range, It was a surprise that it was so good, I could not put it

down. I would expect a lot for a few thousand dollars violin. As for a $ 150K violin, it must be "out of the world" kind.

Has anyone even heard of this maker? I googled his name and no information on him popped up.

MN Price Guide shows a Benjamin Potocka sold in 1996 for a tad under $2000 so I think this seller is a bit optimistic about what his is worth.

There should be no surprise that a German violin would sound good but the tonal properties usually have little bearing on the price.

I do not know the violin but the violinist who played the sound sample was pretty good.

I think he could play any violin and it would sound good.
