Looking for Viper Violin in Australia

Postby Julian Nichols » Thu Sep 17, 2015 12:55 pm

Hi Trockers...

I'm very interested in buying a 5 or 6 string Wood Viper Violin with frets. But I've never played a fretted violin before so I'd really like to try one before I drop $5k+ on something that I might end up hating.

I figure that you guys are likely to be in and out of music shops pretty regularly, so I'd like to ask if any of you have spotted a Wood Viper Violin (it's a flying V shape) anywhere for sale in the country? They don't appear to have any Australian dealers, but there might be one somewhere hanging in a music store somewhere, who knows?

Thank you! They have a 5 string Purple Sunburst listed on the website, and are doing 30% off so it would have come to $2300 (as opposed to $5k from the US) so I rang them and... it's not in stock, they have none :(

Ahh well, was worth a shot. They don't seem to think that there are any others in Australia.
