A simple table to understand the violin value! The ultimate lazy version!


How to accurately judge the violin value is a very complicated matter.

We have also written a number of articles on this subject:

1.  How do you know how much your violin is worth?

2. Why are violin bows so expensive? How much should I spend?

3. Basic knowledge of violin wood 1: the organizational structure of wood

4. Basic knowledge of violin wood 2: wood processing

5. Basic knowledge of violin wood 3: the wood of the violin

6. How much does a violin cost? Take a few minutes to easily understand the violin price system

Many friends wrote to say that the more information they read, the more confused they become, so we compiled The ultimate lazy form. Apart from the reputation of the master, the biggest cost of violin production is wood, and the most intuitive reflection of wood grade is the pattern. Maple is the best material for the back (spruce is the best material for the top, but it has no pattern), so you can roughly judge the value of the violin by looking at the pattern of the back.
