Continually building a network of other dealers, collectors, institutions & musicians as well as buying, selling, & trading instruments and bows has giving Matt expertise in the collectability of certain vintage instruments and the "Fair Market" value.  Holding virtually every job in the violin world has giving Matt the tools and experience and lead him down this path of becoming what a local news paper coined him as "The Violin Merchant".  If you are looking for a particular instrument he can find it for you!
