|Me with my current violin at a recent school concert.|
I will, of course, still play my current violin after I purchase a new one. The one I have now will serve as an at-school instrument, and the new violin will be for practicing at home, playing at Olathe Youth Symphony, and for performances. I am seriously considering a couple of instruments from KC Strings, and we intend to return to Beckmann's Violin Shop sometime during the course of this coming week to look at yet more violins.

|Perusing a lovely Chinese make with a Kansas-finished varnish.|
|My final two selections. Top: The Chinese make shown in the above picture, with a rich, open sound. Bottom: Made completely in KC Strings, this violin has a gorgeous, resonant, warm voice. Love at first sight?|
