    Not long ago someone on this forum bought a fiddlerman fiddle, but can’t remember who it was. So hoping you see this and chime in on your experience.

    Fiddlerman is having a good black Friday sale and thinking about getting one of his.

    Also been thinking for awhile of possibly getting a Gliga fiddle.  My next door neighbor’s Uncle who lives in Tennessee and visits once in a while plays one and it sounds so good.  And a fiddle made in Romania intrigues me.

    Anyway, I can’t decide which one I want to buy from. Fiddlerman or Gliga

    Like they always say, you can’t ever have too many fiddle…or maybe I just say that.

    I have a Gliga I love.

    Mr. Gliga is romanian, but I believe he is in Texas…somewhere in the US anyway.

    Is this fiddle gonna be from Santa or are you just treating yourself?  I have no idea about either one, but good luck deciding and congrats on planning for a new fiddle.  Show us when you get one or the other!

    According to This site

    I have a “Gama super”, aka “Gama 1”, aka, “Professional”

    Looks like it’s the first step down from a “Master” model

    I have 2 Gligas. Both play great. Even though I rarely play them now.

    Why did you quit playing them?

    Well sometimes life takes you in a different direction and I just got a good deal on an Andreas Eastman 305.  I have played on one before and I like them alot.

    I am now playing a Roth violin. It, to me at least seems like it sounds better. The gligas I have are 2002 models and that was before Gliga started giving them model names. The first one I got is really a beautiful instrument I have about $400 tied up in it and the other came from a pawn shop for $200.

    My favorite (and first) fiddle came from a pawn shop for $200 as well.   Turned out to be a Czech or German factory model, no label, but plays and sounds great.
