Reply To: my fiddle is sick
Thanks Richard! I’m pretty certain now that it’s a loose seam. It gets sort of higher pitched and rattly around the chin rest when I do the knock test. I have two places that said they’ll give me an estimate w/o bench fee and it looks like it will cost around $100 if I’m correct. My violin might not even be worth that much, but it’ll give me time to not rush buying a replacement, so I think that’s where I’m headed. It feels a little decadent to spend cash money on an instrument when I’m not talented at all, but I love playing so well, and it is my savings account after all, so I’m going for it!
