Thread Name: New Music store, need fiddle advice
Subject: RE: New Music store, need fiddle advice
I play fiddle and if I was buying one from a shop I wouldn't want to buy a new instrument, I would want a second hand one that had already developed some character.... have you considered getting hold of a selection of 'old' fiddles? Not sure how it would work in the states but in the UK there are auctions and dealers in second hand instruments, plus plenty of stuff around online (ebay or other).
