Any particular client, maybe not... a particular group of clients especially IN THIS PRICE RANGE, absolutely. While I don't normally trade instruments in this price range now, I did so earlier in my career. To be clear: What I said was it might have something to do with appeal, not value. Some attributes tend to appeal to a larger set of players than others. Yes, I've purchased many violins I've liked (quality/build/maker/etc) before I've heard them... but after getting them set up and tweaking what's needed to get them where I feel they should be, I've rarely been disappointed... and I have a really good idea of which clients might like them. I've been doing this for a while... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
