It's time for me to upgrade my violin, and I want an instrument that will be permanent, so I am looking for something of great quality. I don't want to commission an instrument because of both the wait time.
So who are the best modern makers out there? I live in the middle of nowhere, so going out and finding instruments to try is difficult. Which makers/businesses have instruments they can ship out, and I can play on the violin for a week or two to see if I fall in love with the instrument?
I know of Shar, but their website form doesn't work for me. How good are the instruments available at Curtin & Alf, and what other makers have available instruments?
Thanks for any help!
