Some of you have asked to purchase the Amazon violin! Click here if you can't afford $285k: 

Buy "Hallelujah" on iTunes! 
Buy "Thunderstruck" on iTunes! 
Buy "Hallelujah" Sheet Music! 

MY GEAR HERE (Loop Pedal, Shoulder Rest, Pickup, Rosin etc.) 

Why are some violins so expensive??? I went into Peter Prier and Sons in Salt Lake City, where I put to the test a violin I bought off of Amazon for $62, and an antique Italian violin for $285,000. Scroll down for answers on what makes these instruments worth so much.

The first song I play is Hallelujah, and the second is AC/DC "Thunderstruck".


Thank you to Daniel Prier! 

Supply and Demand: One reason the value of an antique Italian violin is so dear is because there are so few of them left, and they are no longer being made. Simple economics dictates that when there is a demand but little supply, value increases.

The Quality: Musicians have long believed that the antique Italian violins are superior to other violins in quality and sound. It’s believed that cooler temperatures from the 1200s to the mid 1800s contributed to a denser tree bark, making the wood that was used in constructing these instruments of a higher quality and offering a better acoustic.

They’re Fashionable: Owning an old Italian is a status symbol in the world of music, thus increasing its legend, value and price.

The Conion and History of the Instrument: Any of these violins are between 100-300 years old, making it an historical icon as well as an instrument. If the instrument is also in excellent conion, the value increases.

Vincenzo Panormo (1794) - $130,000
