Searching for a specific violin(s)
I am searching for violins of a specific maker. Is there some way to search without sending a request to every shop and/or luthier in North America?
First let as many people as possible (like all of us here, and Maestronet Pegbox) know the name of the maker, see what pops up and go from there.
Depends on what you are looking for.
The name of the maker is Paul Jonas Bame, he likely signed his instruments PJ Bame. I have found one instrument that was sold at auction in 2017. Google searching has been difficult because Bame is a common British acronym meaning Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic. Bame is the American anglicized spelling for Bohm or Boehm.
Some other ideas in addition to the (of course) good suggestions already made. I can't certify that any of these are fabulous ideas but this is in case you're still looking for more specific suggestions after your post of exactly what you are looking for...
