I also play this violin.

Kurt Rank, 1893

It plays beautifully and am trying to find out more about the maker.

Any information would be appreciated: Janderson995@yahoo.com

Expertise

I am a violin maker, trained in Salt Lake City at the Violin Making School of America. I have built, repaired, and restored stringed instruments for nearly 20 years, violins/violas/cellos for the last 10. I can answer questions of repair, construction, identification, and history.

Experience

See above. I am submitting this after reading many of the answers to violin questions. Many of the answers are at the very least short sighted, and some just wrong.
