Newly Added.. Anonymous Letters regarding dealing with the QUESTIONABLE trade practices of International Violin Dealers.

Follow the trail of victims overseas as Der Standard documents the many banks that loaned money to Dietmar Machold for what in reality appears to be non-existent deals of Stradivari instruments.
[Der Standard Articles]

International Scandal  of Systemic Violin Racketeering.
In the opinion of Mr. Graham Wells (founder of Sotheby’s auction’s musical instrument department), on the International Violin Business: 
"The violin trade has always been corrupt.
Compared with the rest of the art and collectors' market, and even with other instruments, only violins, because of their rarity, history and immense value, attract this level of corruption, with auction houses and the trade - and, of course, musicians who cannot afford these instruments - all suffering as a result." (The Guardian).
About 90% of string teachers, directors of orchestras and music administrators in schools and universities are employed on a 'commission' basis (i.e. kick-backs).

  Retired FBI agent  Robert K.Wittman writes about tracking down high-priced artwork stolen from the Stuart Gardner Museum in 1990. His book “Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World’s Stolen Treasures’’ tells his experiences while working in the FBI agency’s Art Crime Team. Stolen rare violins are now considered mainstream theft material in the world of Art Crime.

The Great Austrian Violin Heist...?  and Who Is Nikolaj Nantscheff?
(RIN:154, 155 A puzzle of legal title--a $21.3 Million question )
As Chicagoland’s oldest establishment of professional Violin Makers and Dealers, we are guided by the laws and by-laws of the AFVBM or American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers’ Code of Ethics. The heart of the code resides in a single sentence: "True ethical responsibility requires absolute commitment to honorable behavior and practices, even at the sacrifice of personal advantage."
Strings magazine Editor Mary VanClay, broke radical new ground in her article of November, 1996, entitled: "Mysteries of the Market" - Buyers and Sellers Sound off about the Stringed Instrument Trade."  Also see "Elegy for Ethics" by Susan Barbieri regarding teacher kickbacks.

Her report attests to the seamy and dishonorable side of the violin business. SEE ALSO Reuter's Focus Report which informs the unwary about many aspects of the violin business.  See what other have to say: Discussion Forum at Strings Magazine.

At Fritz Reuter & Sons, our uniqueness stems partially from the fact that we have informed and educated the selling and buying public for over the last 40 years, helping them to separate fact from fiction.  

As a business, we are unique. That is, we never have, nor will we ever, engage in the corrupting practice of paying "under the table" kick-backs, commercial bribes, or so-called "commissions" to third parties. These parties – most often the teachers, tutors, or administrators who refer their students to a particular dealer – violate a sacred trust. To be more technical, they breach their fiduciary standing. The practice of kick-backs, etc. turns into special, hidden mark-ups on instruments and bows. To read more about how kickbacks to teachers affect your instrument purchase, read our article on The Chicago Violin MAFFIA "RIN:131", and our attempts to make law officials aware of the hidden charges that are added to instrument purchases.

To give the buyer confidence and assurance for purchasing something of true value, we at Fritz Reuter & Sons have, for the past 40 years, issued a unique document to those who purchase their instrument and bows from us.

We are also unique as professional Violin Makers and Restorers. This uniqueness stems from the fact that NEVER, during our more than thirty years of providing high quality repair and restoration services . . . NEVER have we engaged in the common malpractice known as re-graduation. In the simplest terms, "re-graduation" involves scraping out the guts of an instrument. The "repairman" actually does irreversible damage to the instrument, weakening its very structure.

(WNYC New York) which talks about the power, corruption and conflicts of interest in the string instrument world [John Schaefer, Fritz Reuter and Drew McManus of ArtsJournal.com.
