I went to Bein & Fushi in Chicago the other day... Played on this violin made by Georges Chanot a Paris. The retail price they called was $23,000.
I was looking forward to purchase an Old italian instrument if possible, but for the price i thought the sound was more reasonable than how much they price the old italian violins' sound of about the same sound quality.
So i'm just wondering... Anybody know something about that Georges Chanot maker? How much are those violins' current market value if in near perfect condition? And if i don't have enough budget to own a really fine old italian, is it better off looking for an old French?
Thanks a lot!
