Can I bring my violen ??

Post by genuine_query » Thu, 16 Sep 2010 1:19 am

Hi folks,

Back with a query!!
> Can I bring my violen from India?
> Check-in baggage or can I carry it?

people often believe -"the older the instrument, the better the tuning is"

Thanks & Regards,
Aspirant
Note: It is almost a 20-year old dream...

I've always wanted to open a store and call it "Sax and Violins"

Ok, serious answer.

Stringed instruments are preferably brought in with you via hand carry. I know, I did this with my acoustic guitar. However, policies about instruments depend on the airline. For example, some may let you bring them in with no drama (just stow them in the overhead bin or the friendly FA will put it away somewhere more spacious and safer). Some, will charge you for the instruments like the sporting equipment charge some airlines do. For even bigger instruments (like cellos), you may have to buy an extra seat. Again, check your airline for more info.

It is not a good idea to check in instruments unless you have it in a special travel case.

It's probably better to hand carry it. Especially on some airlines......

Boy did United have a PR fiasco over this one. It went totally viral when it happened.

musicians play violin... It is no less than 'violen'ce till one learns to handle it... :)

There has to be a start somewhere... why not singapore ??
Finding a tutor, going to classes is secondary !
The thought & feeling that I have a pending desire to learn makes me feel younger !!

Immigration ppl never take my side... or rather my stereotype !!
So, wanted to make it doubly sure before I can bring in...

Or
Does 'courier' sound any better ??

P.S: Thanks for all your responses...

Unless you have a job, you aren't gonna get very far. In fact, I reckon you'll be on a plane back to India at the end of the first 30 days.
