Does Amati let you browse results?

Not that I am aware of.

One way to see all the final prices is to bid on every item, as that stays in your history and you will see the winning bid next to it ha ha.:D But you have to bid on the item it doesn't work for just watching.

If anyone is interested in metrics the sale rate for the Amati auction was about 73% which is good for a specialist one. Certainly a better result than the Bromptons one.

Maybe so, but why do they have to be from auction? Most of the best cellos on the market are probably for sale right now in shops.

Hi Wood Butcher,

If you have any reputable dealers/shops that are fair with the pricing I would be interested in paying them a visit once it's safe to travel. I'm still learning a lot when it comes to buying higher end cellos and like many people I thought auctions are a way to possible get a better deal and avoid the middleman. However, with each passing auction I've slowly realized that unless you truly know what you're doing there are so many traps and ways to get cheated. So now I realize that dealing with a reputable source is just as important. That's not to say that I'm going to avoid auctions completely. I mean if there is a good cello in good condition  and it's properly authenticated I will still be making a run at it.

I was loosely interested in something from the T2 auction which ends in under 24 hours, but with a rough quote of $600 for 1 violin shipped to to the UK I think Ill pass.........

What would you like to know? Google fxtourte.hk and that should tell you most of it.

I helped peripherally on the English translation for the auction site ...

Yeah ... I came across it through Facebook. Apparently machine algorithms know I’m into music auctions and this popped up as an ad, but yeah don’t know what to think about it since it does look simple and small. Hmm ...

Well I guess they are just focusing on a small number of higher end bows (at least at the moment). Martin has done some work for them as he stated above so I am sure it is legitimate.

Tarisio just announced they are pushing back their New York auction 2 weeks in the hope that people will try to travel and see the instruments. Their London auction also got pushed back to June just like Ingles. 

Wishful thinking but maybe it might work.
