After selling off an old (but good quality) cornet I'd had in the loft for nearly 20 years, I'm at last replacing my old VSO with a proper violin. 🙂

So my order for a Fiddlerman Master is now in progress! The only problem is it'll take 2 weeks to get here across the Atlantic. How will I contain myself for that long?!!!

LOL, Patience is a virtue. I'm on it though. 🙂
We probably won't ship until next week. Also, need to pick one for you and make that video that you requested. 🙂
Thanks for your business.

You earned it Pierre. I did loads of research before deciding to buy, and yours was the best deal for the money I could find (despite the unfavourable exchange rate at the moment).

Seriously, there's no rush - take all the time you need. 🙂

Congrats Jim on your new violin!  

I can sympathize with you about waiting for your new violin I don't have much patience either.

But when she arrives you will have forgotten all about the wait.

Look forward to hearing you play!   congratulations_png

I'm pretty sure I'll be making a video to show it off once I've got used to it. 🙂

That is what I love even more about picking an instrument for someone like you.

Thanks

Currently held in UK Customs in Coventry, so with a bit of luck I should have a letter asking for payment waiting on the mat when I get home from vacation on Saturday.
