Garth E. Posted July 2, 2020 Report Share Posted July 2, 2020 If I see a violin in a case at a yard sale, I'll probably buy it. That's the problem. I'll add it to my other violins and then see another one on E-Bay I need to buy. That kind of collecting may be the worse case scenario. Over the years I've tried to curb those buying urges and just appreciate the violins I have collected, for better or worse. I suppose had I spent $20,000 on just one, I may not need to look elsewhere to find something better. However underpriced/overpriced violins are everywhere and collecting is rampant. So I did manage to put the brakes on my obsession when I got very lucky with one violin. I was looking for an 18thc. violin and by sheer luck I picked one up under $1000. That scratched the nasty itch and put a stop to my mad collecting. Now I buy violin related books.... yikes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
