The buying experience from Royce Burt was one of the most gratifying experiences I've ever had. His YouTube videos practically sell his fiddles, as he is a good player, not in the violinist sense but as a fellow fiddler who plays the same songs us fiddlers do. The hard part is deciding which fiddle you want! They all sound great.
In dealing with him, he is like dealing with friends. Never pretentious, he's there to help you find what you're looking for and goes to great lengths to get you there and make you a happy customer.
If you're looking for an upgrade or even a first fiddle, you'd be amiss if you didn't try at least one of his fiddles.
Just go to YouTube.com and search for Royce Burt. Prepare to spend a lot of time watching and critically listening, you're bound to find something you like.
