Although I play the pipes, I've always loved the violin, and I've owned and tried to play fiddles for the last 20 years or so, beginning when my daughter was learning to play. But now, I have a collection of antique violins,differing qualities and all beautiful in their way, which I love. In order to justify having them, I should sell one or two, here and there. I have a great room with beautiful sound for trying them out - call and make an appointment to visit - 087-2606751.
