We've been looking at 4/4 size violins for my daughter. The luthier we've been working with gave us 3 to try. I was wondering if anybody knows any of the makers and the general quality of their instruments.They are F. VanDerveken year 1900, Amadee Dieudonne year 1927, J.B. Colin year 1892. They are all in very good shape, with individual diferences in tone, pleasant- but I can't find anything exceptional- even though I have to admit that I am far from being an expert. The prices are between $8,000-10,000.I would appreciate any comments as to the asking price. Also, if anybody has any sugestions regarding very good instruments/ dealers/makers that would fall into that price range. Thank you.
