zefir68 Posted May 26, 2010 Report Share Posted May 26, 2010 There are so many wonderful makers on this forum, coexisting with people looking at eBay listings got me to wonder: what are modern violins really worth? What if a Burgess, Carlson or Holmes were available on an eBay listing? Is anyone willing to test the market among these makers? From my experience, these guys are worth every penny, but there are so many "Italian" makers with names ending in vowels these days that it is hard to really assess the worth of 'modern' violins. My question: what are modern violins really worth and what is the basis for their price? Provenance is out, workmanship is also out since these guys are excellent makers and sound is often discussed here before it becomes irrelevant when the techies weigh in with (in my opinion) totally useless graphs.
