Does anyone know anything about Andrew Schroetter violins?
Nope never herad of the feller. What's he done ?

I'll see what I can do to help.
I put it on the search bar and there was something about $450. but their price was $336. Thats as far as I got. sam.

I tried to post the whole site but it was to much for this space so here is the link.
I hope it helps and if it doesnt I can find other sites.
Please let me know...Mike
Well, it looks like they are all made in china. I was hoping for a better quality one for the price. The only thing I know about chinese violins is that they were not known for their bright crisp sound.
Update, the paper actually says
"Andrew Schroetter Geigenbaumeister"
"Mittenwald / Bayern 420 Model, No. 17405 4/4, Jahr"
now geigenbaumeister just means luthier, which means someone who makes or repairs stringed instruments.
Strange, thanks for the help, keep digging if you would! Maybe not actually chinese somehow?
made in 1988, unless the chinese are faking inscriptions on these, I wonder if it was one he made solo, then sold his name and design to the chinese company that makes them now?
Mittenwald / Bayern is a place in Germany, Jahr means year (1988). I guess I may have to take a chance on it.
