This subject was touched upon in another thread. I think it is worth pursuing further.
If one was to purchase a new violin today, how long would it take before it had a "mature tone"? 5, 10, 40 , 50, 100, 200 years? What do readers think?
I think new and old violins sound different and I am not wanting to debate which is better.
I have both old and semi- modern violins. I prefer the semi-modern which is thirty years old.
