Cincitaipei Posted February 7 Report Share Posted February 7 I was looking at the T2 auction which has a couple of days left on it. As background, I have two kids playing violin and we have several good Chinese violins. We haven't crosses into the $2000+ range. I was just curious if anyone on here has experience buying personal use violins at auction. In the T2 auction there's a 1923 Albert Deblaye currently at $1300, a Joseph Sneider 19th c. violin at $2000, what looks like a $2000 2008 Italian violin, etc. These look playable. I guess I am asking several questions at once: 1. How many of you have bought <$3500 auction violins and what's your experience been with that? 2. Have you gotten a total dog buying like this? 3. What don't I know that I should know? Is there a primer for buying at auction? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
