Hello there guys! First time on this forum however, ive been watching Fiddlerman's videos for quite some time and i was quite impressed with the Cremona Kreisler 1730 copy that he showed off. As im going to Hong Kong for vacation in a month or so, id like to know which model number the violin is listed at. I have checked the GCV website itself for that specific violin but it gives me quite a variety like so

http://www.cremonaviolins.com......asp?sid=10

Id just like to receive some clarification on this matter. Thanks

"Bourree series Kreisler 1730 model V750ES" says the label.

Thanks. By label, you mean the sticker within the violin body itself?

I don't understand what it is you are asking, the number is 1730. If you look at the site you sent it is listed right there. The other numbers are for the Bourree and the Fanfani models.

I'm interested in this violin as well but I, too, find the model numbering to be sort of confusing. The fact that HP stated it was a Bourree 750ES seems at odds with what's listed on GCV's own website. I suppose it could be an oversight in GCVs website.

 

Sunny, did you end up buying this violin? I notice, from another forum, that you're probably just down the street from me.

 

Thanks,

Charlton

We are getting 5 at the end of this week or beginning of next. They've been out of stock for a while. Don't get hung up on the label, unfortunately, GCV ships them without labels now allowing for the distributor or retailer to label them as they wish.

The one that the FM demo is a replica, it's under replicated.

For other models, the bigger the number, the higher end and more expensive (supposed to be better quality), and E stands for European wood and A stands for Asian wood.

 

Sunny, you are lucky to be in HK for a month. The GCV has a store or a factory in Guangzhou, may be you could go check it out there. I was in Guangzhou last month, but didn't get a chance to check it out, otherwise I probably would have picked one.

 

Contact them before you go.

actually i was at their shop in guangzhou. tried all their violins from the 600A and above. very high quality and given they dont have any sales tax or anything and that you can bargain for the most part, i picked up 800es  1714 Soil copy for what would be 1600 dollars with a case, and pretty decent CF bow, and a set of larsen virtuoso strings.

 

i didnt go to their factory however (although i could have)

Hey guys! I have recently bot a very nice and expensive violin, and it has 733 model number. I am that kind of person that believes in different theories, horoscopes and number, and I have read on link has been removed by Cid  about it's model number meaning. It's written that this angel number 733 sends a message to always be polite even to those you feel you do not need. I think that it's a very nice piece of advice, and I will try to be very kind in the future. What do you think about such meanings?

(Please do not respond to the above reply post. If I find for sure he is a spammer, the post will be deleted and the poster blocked. I replied below with a warning and question to check on legitimacy. Thanks. Just trying to keep your use of the forum enjoyable, without blocking a possible new member before I am positive. 😁)

@brisgstaff, I have edited your post above. 

1. It was not a legit link. Upon copying and pasting, there was some crazy horoscope reading stuff and also a “file not found”

2. If your post is meant as spam, you will be blocked if we see one again. We are a nice group of stringed instrument players, enthusiasts, etc. We do not respond to spam posts and are diligent about eliminating spam posts and blocking spammers. 

3. If you are a new string enthusiast member, you will understand the importance of and appreciate numbers 1 and 2 above. If that is the case, welcome to the site, but please do not post links similar to your link I removed. Please read the forum rules at the top of the page. Thank you. What brand and size violin do you have?

4. If you are a spammer, please refrain from posting, it is really not wanted here and is a waste of your time.

Yeah, this is really weird, but it's real. Everything that is said on Link Removed By Cid is real, these are not just simple numbers. Do you really think that it's a coincidence ? It happens to me all the times, I am sure that it's a message. It may look crazy, but I really believe in such things.
