I'm excited...I'm watching my tracking info for a UPS shipment. I've bought a new violin that's coming from Albuquerque and it's in Salt Lake City this morning. Should arrive on Friday. I'm hoping it will be THE one I've been looking for. Here's the man who made it: www.whedbeeviolins.com . He concentrates on cellos now, so his violins can be hard to come by. Here's a picture of the bow I bought a few months ago (it's like the Justin Poirson bow pictured--same maker, but that is not the price I paid for mine): http://www.indyviolins.com/in_stock4.htm . Now I have to go out and get lots of work to pay for my new equipment.

Me, too, but contacts are so necessary. How long have you been waiting? My fiddle was supposed to have been shipped last Wed., but it didn't even get to the UPS store until Sat. The owner was sick. Then they didn't get it on the truck until Monday night. I'm playing another one while I wait that I'm considering buying instead...It's on loan for a week. I have a week with the other one to decide whether I'm going to keep it. It's supposed to be a great instrument, and I'm really excited.

Thier thats pretty darn exciting!!! What will it look like? Did he give you options for color? Do you get to pick certain sound nuances of it? You know.... could it sound 'warmer'? What kind of wood? What kind of strings? *ahhhhh.... CHOOOOOO!!!!*

Argh, I still feel crappy.
