I share with you valuable information so you can select your ideal (playable and payable!) instrument yourself and distinguish it from unplayable instruments.
With this information you can select a violin, viola or cello that supports and rewards you, not an instrument that hurts you.
Here you can find all the video’s in this series (click on the links):

Violinist and Skype violin teacher at Violin Lounge
I've learn violin for 5 years. My first violin was a factory made one. The good thing is, it's not wound my fingers. I'm using that violin for almost 5 years. My teacher told me to buy the cheapest one because it doesn't matter for the new learner. Now I think he's not really right, after read a few articles about this in violinist.com.
I just bought an about $800 violin. That's all I can afford at the moment, and I can see the difference. The pegs, strings (even if I'm using the same set of strings for them), bow, body, the shape, even a little detail make a difference! The sounds are really different.
And I hope every one who want to buy a violin (spescially for the first time) watch your video before get one. Because it's true!
@Ann Marie Thanks! These are my first baby steps making video's... frankly: these are made with the photo camera of my boyfriend, haha! I am already saving money for some better equipment, so the focus will be better.
