I have a violin that`s been in my family for years, described above. I`m not looking to sell it, I`m just curious about its history. Does anyone know anything about these instruments? Where were they made? Are they considered good instruments? Mine has clearly been well played.

Thanks in advance!

Well, Antonious Stradivarious was an extremely famous instrument maker hundreds of years ago. Then after, people have made copies of his instruments. You have a copie of someone named Milano in 1928. How much is it worth, hundreds??? I guess you will have to do more research.

Milano could be a city?

After further searching on the net, it appears that it`s just one of many instruments imported into the states in the early 1900`s - they used the model name "Strad" to encourage people to buy it, since the name was associated with expensive, exclusive instruments.

My best guess, anyway. Doubtful that it`s worth much. But it seems like a nice instrument, perhaps I`ll try to learn a bit - though the 3/4 size is a little cramped for my big bass-playing hands...

When people make an Stradivarious copy, they usually make a violin with the same dimersions as a Strad. Some Stard copies have been worth several thousand dollars, your violin could be worth anything.
