I have read your opinion and all the writings you have done to the Violin..., as always I have found the lack of true, probably by the ignorance of people who... or it may be the interest..., this is a true Nicolaus Amati..master of all, who teach many be German, Italian,...and many others ...which you and the Industrial Revolution destroy not only the wonder of this Teacher and Master but making your own when He is no longer with us, god bless this people, which have been teach by THE Master and their Mastering been unto others, which I'm glad to see, that still there, same of a few left with us, and each of them may have their beautiful tones and done for a particularly music, but always it is there, the signature of the Master all over,...No One can be Above THE MASTER...but you can EQUAL ,... never ABOVE, GOD BLESS

Please Note: For an accurate appraisal of your instrument's value or history, I must advise you to take it to a local luthier or string shop for an evaluation. It's really not possible to do this with any accuracy via email.

However, I am happy to answer other questions about violins, bows, violin playing, and violin/bow repair. I can also talk with you about what bows, rosin, strings, cases, shoulder rests, etc. might work best for you and your particular instrument. (There are some great new products on the market.) I've taught violin and fiddle playing for the past 18 years and will answer questions about playing and technique.


I've been studying the violin for over thirty years. I started teaching in 1996. In addition to my training at Lebanon Valley College and at the Violin Institute, I handle violins, bows, and customer questions of all sorts on a daily basis in my shop - J.S. Fisher Violins,


I hold a Bachelor of Music degree from Lebanon Valley College, as well as certificates in violin repair, violin maintenance, and bow rehairing from the Violin Institute at the University of New Hampshire.
