I'm interested in hearing from people who have consigned a stringed instrument to a violin auction house. What are your experiences? Are these houses usually honest and provide a useful service or would I be vulnerable to "getting taken"? When an auction is held for moderate priced instruments, who attends? Just dealers or would orchestra players and students attend an auction to find an instrument? Is anyone glad they consigned their instrument to an auction or is it a last ditch alternative?
