Early 1900s Czech - George Klotz Copy violin
Mid 1900s JG CO. violin
The Artist and the JG are going on the block after christmas. I'm thinking of a Scott Cao 800 as a stepping stone on the way to a David Palm.
The Czech is a real sleeper. Not particularly well made, not very good looking, and sings like an angel. I'm going to do a little more set up work and hang onto it for a beater. It's a great yard party and camp fiddle. If I had any common sense I'd put some money into it and skip the Cao.

the pate is now sitting on the couch in the computer room collecting dust...i really really need to sell it...me needs a new bow.
anyhow...i found "THE" instrument. I've had it almost a year now...crazy. its made by Lawrence Furse of Salt Lake City, Utah. he was suggested to me by Bein&Fushi oddly enough. i love it...it keeps getting better. currently using a Coda Classic; currently wanting something better.

When we sold our house and made a lot in equity I informed my husband that I was taking some of the money for a violin. Our local luthier had a beautiful William Chadwick instrument that I purchased. The only other owner was a little old lady who played it as a teenager and adult. When she passed away her family sold it to the luthier and then he sold it to me. It was made in 1909 and is a beautiful honey/wheat color with bold/dramatic flaming on back. It has a very bright singing tone.
I had trouble finding info on Chadwick violins of London until I searched old posts in this forum.
Belated thanks for those posts that gave me some information on my lovely violin.

and some 1996 Gibson Highland pipes.
I guess that I like those "cut through the din" kind of instruments!
