Old Violin House active?

December 6, 2017, 9:59 AM · I've read some positive things about Old House Violins, so I decided to look around. From what I've seen, they are primarily an eBay store, but more recently opened up there own storefront site via Oviolin.com. It looks like they had a sale in September, and have yet to update their inventory (every instrument is sold). Are they still active? I tried emailing and messaging via their Facebook page, but no luck. I also noticed an AliExpress storefront with the same name, and, seemingly, same instruments but a message from that page said they're not affiliated with Oviolin.com (which seems to be the original Old Violin House).

Any of you know if they're still active? Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Edited: December 6, 2017, 2:49 PM · Sure, that's a possibility. I've gotten the impression, by reading previous posts, that their instruments are on par with instruments sold in the US under other 'brand' names that end up costing hundreds more. I know they've got to be set up, so that's a cost I've already considered.

Are they allowed to have strikes?
