Does anyone know the value of BEL 1001 MKV?

Double blind test on Strads
It's great to see that todays violin makers are able to produce excellent sounding instruments at an inexpensive price point comparatively. Good news for all violinists/violists that want great sound but don't have the megabucks to spend.
