Thanks to my daughter I have rediscovered an old friend and started playing again. I'm trying to research my violin and would like to know when it may have been made. I recently had it to a local music store and had it checked out and repaired. The luthier said it was definitely worth doing. The tone sounds much better now.


4/4 full size violin 

William & Lewis

Made in Germany


"The David" model #168


My parents bought it used for me around 1979 or 1980.

Any information on when it may have been made would be awesome!

Thanks so much in advance,

- Paul

Check over on, The Pegbox. There's a thread near the top about how to photo the fiddle. It's something like "If you're posting photos, read this". Then post those there. Hopefully you'll get a bite or three. Even so, sometimes it's inconclusive.
