THE DORFFEL FAMILY HAS A LONG HISTORY OF VIOLIN MAKING. AS FAR AS VALUE IS CONCERNED, I DO NOT KNOW. MY VIOLA IS EXCELLENT, AND HAS THE SOUND OF AN OLD "GREAT" INSTRUMENT. EVERYONE IS AMAZED. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A VIOLIN HOWEVER. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OTHER DORFINO INSTRUMENTS.

MINE BELONGED TO A MEMBER OF THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA WHO DIED RECENTLY, IRVING SEGALL. THE VIOLA HAS BEEN WELL PLAYED AND WELL TREATED.

I AM NOW PLAYING IT IN THE GULBENKIAN ORCHESTRA IN LISBON PORTUGAL.
