I've just begun playing the violin and have been working with the GCV Cremona Kreisler replica that Fiddlershop sells. I learned to read music last December and I have just been fascinated with the physics of violins. I took some pictures of the Kreisler replica.  They never seem to do justice to the instrument in real life. I've included a few black and white images so you can see the wood grain. The tiger striping is really nice to look at. Also on this model I chose the rosewood fittings and I think they look great.  Since I am still new to all this I can't comment on the sound too much except that the Kreisler replica is much more resonant an instrument than the the Cecilio instrument I was playing on from December to April.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning more from everyone.  Thanks, ChrisP1000811-2.JPGImage EnlargerP1000811.JPGImage EnlargerP1000814.JPGImage EnlargerP1000815.JPGImage EnlargerP1000822.JPGImage EnlargerP1000818-2.JPGImage EnlargerP1000816.JPGImage EnlargerP1000813.JPGImage Enlarger

Are you taking lessons?  I'm wondering if I should

Not yet. However, after about 6 months of learning the very basics I do think I will start taking lessons to make sure I'm not developing bad playing habits.  Unfortunately the you tube videos can only take one so far before you need a live instructor.  But at least I know enough to ask questions now so I think I will be more comfortable in a class.
