I had claimed this fiddle for myself after it was first built and played it for years. I felt like it was the best one I had built to that date and still feel like its in the top 3 of all of them I’ve built until now. I recorded an old timey record with my band “Wooden Nickel” in 2016 and played it for the entire album. Please listen below to a cut from that album. I’ve always felt that it was everything I’d ever wanted in a fiddle..crisp highs, deep rich lows, good balance across its full range and great response. I would challenge anyone to find a better fiddle on the market right now in this price range. The owner is offering it with Bobolocke hardshell case and a Coda GX Diamond graphite bow, which has a value of over 850.00. He’s asking 2500.00 for the whole package, an awesome deal for sure! Please contact me with any questions at all.
