Yes, the UK violin trade is essentially finished along with many other previously thriving sectors of our economy.

Martin, as a dealer do you think this is bad enough of an issue to consider relocating to mainland Europe, or are you waiting to see what trade deals might be made in the future?

Perhaps you could retire early on a reduced pension:)

You can buy a 400 gram packet of digestives for 31p in (well known supermarket) and they are absolutely scrummy.

That's almost 2000 calories for 31p.

No reason for anyone to starve in Blighty in 2021.

They even go well in a salad if you think you need the extra fibre.

One new French auction and catalogue added.

Please let me know if there are anymore auctions to add. It is quite difficult to keep up sometimes as there are so many.

The results of the latest Bromptons Auction look devastating for the firm. Only about 1/4 of the instruments on-sale sold. Many had no bidders. I have never seen such a poor results from a major auction house. 

With Tarisio moving from London to Berlin, it would not surprise me to see Bromptons move, too.

It does look like Brexit is going to kill the fine violin auction industry in Britain.


Edit: Oops! It looks like bidding is still open - it wasn't refreshing in my browser!

Some of the recent Bromptons auctions have had similarly poor outcomes, I'm not sure it is an entirely new issue for them.

The Tarisio UK auction did well, the Ingles and Hayday auction is currently doing very well and Amati usually do pretty well.

Brexit is obviously a key factor, but I do feel Bromptons may need to look at how and what they sell more closely in the future.
