I am going to Italy next summer to visit a couple of cities an plan on stopping to cremona. I have been playing violin for 3 years now, and my violin needs an upgrade. I taught it would be interesting to buy a violin in cremona. As anyone had previous experience of shopping in cremona. I am also wary of the prices I would have to pay... I have a budget of around 1500$ with a potential increase to 2500$. I would prefer to stay on the lower end of this scale. I already have a nice bow (carbon fiber that works like a charm).
I am stopping to Cremona as the last city of my trip after venize and florence. Should I start by cremona and if prices are too expensive go to florence to find a violin?
Thanks for any input.
