Reghin 3/4 size violin

Hofner three quarter size violin

This violin is at least 10 years old, but has never left the warehouse after arriving in the country, so it's brand new. Made in Romania, this is a good quality instrument. It sounds pretty good at the moment, and will develop much further with some use. This is the sort of instrument worth keeping in the family and if looked after will see many students through to their full size instrument.

Comes in lightweight Hofner case, with good quality bow.

No idea what this sort of thing would retail for now. Around $500 I imagine. This Price: $240.

Josef Holis Violin

Josef Holis Violin Josef Holis Violin

This violin is around 15 years old. It was used for a few years. Has not been played for many years now but received lots of compliments when my son used to play it. When this and various instruments like it were brought in they retailed for around $2000, though I can't remember what this one cost at the time. As the label shows, made in Czecholsovakia.

It's an excellent instrument that would suit a serious student, and is worth checking out if your looking for a good instrument.

Comes in a case as shown. Does not include a bow.

This Price: $770.

G.X.Deng Violin

G.X.Deng Violin G.X.Deng Violin

This violin is around 15 years old. I never got rond to playing it, and has only been played for about 30 minutes or so in it's life. This is the sort of instrument that started being imported from China when they started making seriously good instruments. Unfortunately many people have yet to appreciate how good these instruments are, and are yet to move beyond their ill-informed prejudice regarding instruments made in China.
