Sound Qualities:
I am a professional violinist and I have played this violin for about 1 year.  I have played it at auditions and contests it has served me well; many have commented that it is beautiful looking and sounding. I would describe the sound as very rich and sonorous. I am selling it because it is a fine violin that deserves to be played and I recently upgraded violins and no longer am playing it. If you would like sound files I am willing to make a recording/video and send it to you — please contact me to arrange this.  
 
Shipping and Packaging:
Shipping to the USA only. The violin will be carefully packed. I will put the bridge down, tighten the strings so the post does not fall, wrap the violin in a soft cloth, and put it into a simple, bullet style case.  The case will then be placed into a box and packed so that it is suspended in the middle of the box with lots of padding on all 6 sides. It will be shipped USPS with insurance for the purchase price, tracking, and will require a signature upon delivery. I will share tracking information with you and monitor tracking to watch for delivery signature confirmation. You will need to set up the bridge and tighten the strings at home upon arrival.    

Price/Returns:
Please, serious inquiries only. The price is based on excellent condition, age, sound, feedback from several sources, and similar violins offered for sale online and in shops.  You can purchase through cross-post on Reverb, or I can email you a PayPal Invoice.  Item will not ship until payment shows as made.  No returns, I simply do not want the hassle. Please just contact me with your questions prior to purchasing and I will be happy to answer so that the need for a return is not necessary. I strive to be upfront about all.
