I found an instrument in my dad’s basement that looks really nice. I’m not too knowledgeable on the topic so could anyone help pricing this?

    basically, jews,buddhists,muslims pray head down to satan. during the night christian earthlybowdowns count 40 times more than daily earthlybowdowns. since, most of the time witches pray during the night against christians, it's best to pray at night ...maybe you could do 2000 christian earthlybowdowns.. notice that muslims-jews-buddhists stay head down which shows that they worship satan; christians have to get up super fast showing allegiance to Christ and not the devil. so, christian earthlybowdowns: u face east, legs together (so that demon don't run underneath ur legs); u look at the eyes of icon (energy goes ur way according to saint Pelageya of Ryazan); u make proper Orthodox sign of the cross (first three fingers together as if u had a pinch of salt in them; thumb always straight; ring and pinky to palm; firmly touch forehead: "in the name of the Father"; firmly touch 1cm above belly button: "and of the Son", raise hand to chest level and now move to right shoulder where three bones meet: "and of the Holy"; move to left shoulder: "Spirit. Amen"; release the fingers; hand down by ur side); u bow down on ur knees (knees together), then put hands on the floor just touching each other, then forehead on top of backofhands; as soon as ur forehead touches the back of hands, get up super fast showing allegiance to Christ (and not the devil). do 2000 times during the night against witches. 'cuz witches work hard for satan (by praying like three hours); you have to show them respect by outworking them; u feel me? but of course when u tired u could pray the Jesus prayer at least three times every hour (don't sleep 4 more than 1 hour; wake up and pray the Jesus prayer three times; then u can rest a little bit; in case witches pray real hard to satan, then u have to pray to Jesus as many times as possible); thank u; forgive me rudeness.

    Source(s): how will the gov't try to keep population constant? by changing dna from two strands to three strands using the infamous unforgivable mark of the beast; better hide, homie. hide ur kids, hide ur wife, antichrist is flyin' thru town. take ur glocks out and shoot that son of a bytch down. he's an s-o-b 'cuz his mother is a 12th generation prostitute to jews and hindus. funny thing is that she pretends to be a virgin; forgive me.

    Search for a label on The instrument and then do a google search to determine it's value. Or, takeit toa music storefor some advise .

    Just looking at it, and the case, it appears comtemporary-mass produced. Then it would be worth less than $500

    I agree that it's impossible to value a violin from a photo. 

    However, I know quite a bit about violins and I'm guessing that's a cheap one.  It looks like one of the pegs was broken and replaced with something that doesn't even match (which no one would ever do with an instrument of value).  It's got four metal fine tuners which implies this instrument is for a beginner.  The tailpiece and chin rest are of budget material with no ornamentation.   There is only one bow in the case which indicates that the person who owned/used this isn't a serious or professional player (most have an extra).  Oddly enough, the case was a pretty high end one when it was new. 

    That bow looks like it needs to be rehaired.  If you can find an local artisan that does violin work, take it there and have the bow rehaired.   It costs about $50.   Most will take a look at your violin for you as a courtesy.   They can let you know of any repairs needed and give you a general idea of whether it's a valuable instrument worth appraising or whether it's akin to a German shiit box.    I'm not talking about some hoity-toity violin shop or some musical instrument rental place.   Find the 65 year old European dude who has 40 violins in his dungeon of a basement because he's the guy you want.

    It's impossible to appraise a violin from a photo. The pertinent information is on the inside of the instrument under the f's and the way the body is constructed needs to be seen close up in person. Unfortunately you will need to do a google search for qualified appraiser services near where you live. It could be nothing more than a school model, it could be a professional model but a pro nerds to see it in person.
