Has anyone seen any concern yet on the US/China "Trade War" regarding the volume/cost of Chinese violins and accessories?  I already have a life time supply, but it would be sad if students (and their parents) were restricted from access to these instruments in the future as a result of this mess.

The only thing that we have noticed is that Rosewood is hard to get a hold of. Prices have raised slightly but not much. So far things are still good with instrument trade with China.
