Thread Name: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
Subject: RE: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
I have a violin which has a label inside with a turtle (I think its a turtle) it also says "copy of Andreas Amati 1901"

Its a nice fiddle and used to be quite quiet. When I went to music college my tutor suggested having the sound post moved. So I did and now its a loud fiddle. It has a nice tone. It was left to me by an old teacher of mine when I got a scholarship to college.

I am so glad that it wasn't stolen when the house was broken into. I wouldn't part with it ever!
