The fiddle is spoken for already.
This fiddle has a Juzek Prague label in it (Pre WWII), and it looks like every other Juzek violin I've seen, so I'm thinking it's the real deal. Sure sounds good. It has had the scroll repaired; that's why the price is so low, along with the heavy wear on the varnish. (Look closely at the pictures.) The repair is solid, as strong as new IMHO, and otherwise the physical condition is fine. If you like fiddles with character, this should fill the bill. Should be a keeper for someone.
I'm posting this for a friend of mine - one of my jam partners, a pro fiddler and mando player. Great guy! It sounded good to start with, but I thought it had more to offer, so I did a new bridge and post, and got a little more sound out of it. Now all it needs is someone to play it.This one's got Zyex strings on it. I think they suit it well
Give it a listen: You can hear a high quality mp3 here: [url]http://home.everestkc.net/woodwiz/music/jl001.mp3[/url], or you can click on the "more info" link below. Best to listen with headphones or ear buds, volume up to real word levels. Computer speakers won't tell you much. Be patient, it may take a while to download, depending on your service.
The recording is a 320 bit mp3, recorded in a practice room on a Zoom H4 by an expert fiddler, with no EQ or any other effects. The room is very flattering, and the fiddler is a very good professional, Pat Ireland. Unless you are a top professional, this fiddle will NOT sound like this for you, but it CAN, if you have the skills.
Satisfaction is guaranteed.
