Purchasing an Italian violin with the budget of $15000

September 3, 2020, 12:41 AM · https://www.violinist.com/discussion/thread.cfm?page=4454

My earlier discussion thread was archived and can no longer add new response so I have to start a new one here.

I would like to thank everyone who has provided valuable insights and suggestions in the earlier thread. As someone has asked me to share the final outcome, I eventually purchased a Maurizio Bissolotti violin from Brobst violin. It took 2 full weeks for the package to travel from Virginia to Shanghai and it arrived at my doorstep today in perfect condition. I have played it and it has very nice sound. So, happy ending!

(I love looking at beautiful instruments, although in the case of violins I still don't really know how to use them, so I stick to my cheap one).
