There is one in the local 2nd hand shop and it looks canny old, will it be worth owt ?
Let me be the first to say, dinnar
From what I have seen on most flog its and like are they are normally reproductions worth about £30-£50.
Sometimes if it has a really old bow then the bow is worth more than the violin.
Sometimes the older they are the more expensive and valued they get, but that depends on how good it was in the first place. Thats about as much as I know
Thought you would know about git owld things!
Take a picture, get some details, ask them to play it.
Check the sound post especially.
Happy to advise when you have more info
Something old in a second hand shop!!!!!! WOW!!! I'm nee Arthur Negus bur probably not.
It's got née strings and née bow and it looks a bit battered but av just got a feeling about it.
Cat what name is to look for ?
I looked inside and the was a name and numbers 1737
Barry Siddall bought one thinking it was real but it was fake he paid a bit of money for it so went to the Echo they ran the headline “Siddal in the middle of fiddle diddle riddle
I hate violins. I hate any kind of aggro.
Look if you can't play it you can't knowif it is good, like spinal tap with the sustain and flame. This can work in your favour as you can bring the price right down and say unless you hear the tone you can't pay more than ten quid.
Sounds like a fiddle mate
It's only £15 I think.
You got no names to look out for? And I will go have a look again.
If it is 15 and you have a yen for it I'd offer 5 for it.
There are loads of names without any characteristics being named I can't really help.
Smell it, look inside, check the joins and what colour the glue appears. The varnish is important. Look inside, seeing a bit of dry kind of mould is a good sign. Hold it right up to eye level and look in the f hole and down and check there is a small post under where the bridge is/should be.
Actually thats £150
It was summat like that actually.
That looks bad to me from that pic.
Looks canny new to me.
Well it is difficult because if the bad pic but it looks all wrong to me. I still say £10
