Hi Bergonzi, I have just now run across your very old post. I have two martin Karall violins, 1991 and 1992 that I've owned since they were made. I got to know Martin, and what a lovely man he was. I'm selling one of them now, as I retired from the VSO 7 years ago, and now am retiring for good. I'm wondering if you ever did your display of his violins?
