Please forgive this question if it seems naive, but I am an adult student, who has only been practicing for 6 weeks or so.
Are there some standards procedures/protocal for shopping for violins particularly older ones. I've notice there are violins of all ranges from $500 to $30,000 at the local Violin shop. With many in the $2,000 to $8,000 range.
The other day I noticed some one purchase a violin and the merchant automatically took %6 off with out prompting.
Is haggling a general or accpeted practice in Violin Shopping? If so what's the general range of deviation from list price?
