When choosing an instrument, the age of a violin is a point that most musicians particularly think about. In general, an old violin is better in sound than a new one. This is true only if it is a hand-made instrument and has always been in constant use, with care.

The purchase of a really good, old violin at a moderate price, or more accurately, a price that the player can afford, becomes more difficult every year. Only at a really high price can one be sure to get an authentic instrument from one of the unrivaled masters of the past.

Age is not the only quality needed for a good instrument. An instrument which has not been properly manufactured from the ground up, Can not produce a first-class sound, even after a century of maturity.
