Deciding To Buy A Vintage Violin

By Dennis Perry


A lot of people enjoy playing musical instruments for pleasure and others professionally as a member of an orchestra. Beginners will usually start with a mass produced budget instrument before moving up to a better made model. Many experienced players will choose to buy a vintage violin and there is a little homework to be done before making a purchase.

Most professional players and music tutors will tell students that the more they spend on an instrument and the higher the quality, the better they will play and sound. All hand crafted violins will have an individual tone like no other as well as looking and feeling different to the player. Before making a final decision and buying a valuable instrument you should always spend a little time playing it to ensure it suits you.

Rare and valuable instruments are not cheap and will always cost more than modern mass produced models. A few different things will determine the cost of an instrument and some care is needed when making your choice. There are reputable instrument shops in Huntington Beach, CA who deal in older violins and will be happy to guide you in your search for one.

The first thing to work out is how much money you want to spend on an antique violin. With prices ranging from a few thousand dollars to millions for the very rare ones it is important to make the right choice. A number of things will affect the value such as the maker, country of origin, woods used in the construction and the year of manufacture.

A store is usually the best place to find an instrument of this kind and there are many offered for sale in stores worldwide. The benefit of buying form a shop is that you can try out the violin and inspect it personally before making a decision. Also the trained staff will be on hand to assist you and any purchase will be covered by their guarantee and after sales care.

Antique instruments are also offered for sale by a lot of internet retailers and auction sites. Some care should be taken when buying from these places especially if you cannot see your potential purchase before buying it. Any vintage instrument should be checked for authenticity by an expert as over the years many have been faked and many people have made costly mistakes.

If you choose to buy a vintage instrument you should always speak with the person selling it and ask about its history. Ask them where they got it, check serial numbers and try to get as much paperwork to prove its provenance. Ideally a violin should be offered for sale in its original case as this will add to its value.

The last thing to consider when planning on purchasing an antique musical instrument is its insurance cover in case it is lost or damaged. Most homeowners will have contents insurance but in most cases this will not be sufficient to cover very valuable items. Specialist insurers are in the business of covering musical instruments and rare valuable items.
