Ron from New Jersey, just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to the forum. Started learning about 3 months back and loving the journey so far. Stumbled upon this forum while looking for an affordable carbon fiber bow to replace the one that came with my starter violin. I ended up being so happy with the fiddlerman CF bow, that I stopped by the fiddlershop when I was in Florida last month and picked up a Holstein Traditional Cannone. So even though I'm New to the forum, I feel like I'm already part of the fiddlerman family. Thanks again Pierre, I'm loving the new fiddle.

Welcome @RCall !

Good luck with your violin journey, and enjoy the forum thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Hey Ron, Happy you signed up for the forum.

Also happy to hear that you are loving the journey so far. Not many members have had the chance to drop by and visit as you did and we are always happy to meet our members.

I very glad that you love the fiddle and look forward to seeing you again next time you are in town. 🙂
