Lot's of great things were written about the August Kohr HC602 Violin in Strings Magazine so I decided to test it out myself. I could immediately see that this violin is set up and adjusted by skilled luthiers. The bridge is well cut without any excess wood, the sound-post is set right though it could undoubtedly move during shipping, and the pegs function properly without slipping or sticking.  This violin sings already after just being played for 30 minutes. During that short time the sound improved which leads me to believe that it will be considerably better in a few months as do most fine modern instruments. Playing this fiddle is pure joy and the sound coming out of it compares to fine Italian instruments. I can easily recommend this violin to not only students but also to professionals that can't afford to spend over tens of thousands of dollars to get a fine instrument.

What's the selling price?

SORRY   .... just found everything in your store.  I've got to be tempted at that price and I can show my wife your video and say I will sound just like that !!!!

I saw the 602 in one and two piece backs.  What's that about ?

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Here is the one that I did right after that one. I didn't practice it so it's not perfect but I had fun playing it. The harmonics didn't come out too well but I could have fixed it if I had worked on it for a half hour or so.
I am pretty sure you will be happy with your fiddle Aleive smile
I actually considered getting one as a second fiddle for outdoors and such. Had I not already ordered a CVN-300 last week to have decorated for me 🙁

Hehe.. I will when I feel confident enough 😉 Still got a ways. Been a musician for over one and a half decade. So I have certain standards before I go public 😛 But a month or so after I get it I see no reason not to 🙂

Oh wow that violin sounds beautiful compared to mine. Now I wish I keep my second violin all those years ago.
