Six months ago I had more freelance work here in the U.S. than I could handle, now I am thankful I fall go back to Greece for a regular philharmonic job.
I also have a rather pricy early 20th century Italian that I cannot move (I'm hoping to buy a great modern in its place).
I wonder if this recession is hitting the great modern makers? Someone told me Robin in France is not doing that well, but then again he was coming out of favor when I left Europe a few years ago, so it may have nothing to do with this recession.
Will prices go down at all? Will more want modern fiddles because of the huge difference in price between older fiddles and newer ones? Especially since the best makers today are making some HUGE sounding fiddles!
In other words, how will this affect the modern fiddle market?
