Hey all. I just bought the Fiddlerman Concert violin, Artino practice mute, Resonans Shoulder rest, Meisel clip-on tuner, and have an extra bow - fairly decent Pernambuco, as well - along with the Fiddlerman Carbonfiber that came with it. All up for sale.

I was hoping to be able to learn but my body is just too messed up to continue trying, so - this beautiful violin along with everything listed above is up for sale complete. $500 worth of equipment basically brand new as I've only had it for a couple weeks now for best offer over $350. My loss is your gain.

Hey, Akiviri!

Those things in your list are very good choise, and looks like it was bought with careful thinking and love to the music.

Of course, i don't know what happened to You in theese 2 weeks, i hope nothing too bad, but maybe there's a reason to wait for a while and think of opportunity to get back on track with the violin?

If i'm wrong and your decision is done, then i wish You Good luck! And You're right, this is a REALLY great deal!

Yes, regrettably it is my final decision. I'm 47 years old and have rotator cuff damage to my right shoulder along with injuries to my neck. I was thinking that stretching and taking breaks would allow me to learn to play, finally - but that is not the case. The pain does nothing but get worse to the point that 15-20 minutes is too long now. So, I'm letting it go to prevent more damage and hopefully avoid surgery. But thank-you for the thought and support :)

I have an injury in my back and my neck. Fortunatly it does not affect me in my daily life, and I am also able to play the violin. But I posted a video on this forum with a man playing the violin like a cello, and I thought that if my injury should prevent me from playing one day, this is how I would try to play. Just a possibility :) I hope you are able to either sell it or get back on track:) 

 

Here's the link to the video :)

TY coolpinkone :) I'm back to bearable levels. Ah well - you don't learn, or succeed, if you don't try :)

Hey Akiviri,

I just saw this. You never need to take a loss like that when you buy from us and it's only been a few weeks. Just contact us and we'll issue a refund minus shipping costs provided there is no damage done to the instrument.

Very sorry to hear about your rotator cuff injury.

In case you decide to change you mind, there's always hope when it comes to playing the violin!  

In 2008, I was in a particularly nasty accident where I suffered 4 ruptured/herniated disks (2 in my neck alone), Dislocated right shoulder w/ rotator, labrum & bursar sack tears.  I had to deal with partial paralysis, a spinal cord stimulator, and a ton of surgeries and therapy sessions.  

I almost gave up at first due to the pain, but I asked my physical therapist and doctor about playing violin.  Surprisingly, they worked violin practice into my home exercise program! They felt that playing violin would help me maintain proper posture and increase some arm strength and mobility. Not to mention, it kept my mind occupied!  That was huge in my recovery!  

What also helped was properly setting up my violin with a chin rest and shoulder rest! I went from being only able to practice for 5 minutes at a time to nearly a half-hour overnight!  

Just remember, where there is a will, there is a way!  If you really want to play violin, I'm sure you'll find a way!  Even if the time is not right for you........right now! ;-)
