Customer Question

The value of a violin in good, playable condition, made by Caspar De Salo in Brescia in 1495?

Hello,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX X'll be pleased to help you with this question.

Gasparo Da Salo, one of the world's great violin makers, was born in 1542 and died in 1609.

Your violin is a late 19th or early 20th century German factory violin, probably made in Markneukirchen for export to the west. It has a Da Salo label, as most of these violins have labels naming the great luthiers, such as Stradivarius and Amati. These are still considered to be good student violins.

The price range for this type of violin is $300 to $1,000, depending on condition and tone.

The year on it is 1595, I typed the wrong date. Corrected it is;

Caspar da Salo in Brescia

1595

I apologize for bad typing. Does that affect your answer?

Hi again,
No - the answer is the same. If you had an actual da Salo violin, it would be a baroque instrument, and would look nothing like the violins you are accustomed to seeing.
