The hardest part in the search for the perfect violin is the vast number of options that are out there. I am currently an intermediate to an advanced player, and the violin that I have now was passed down to me as it is a family instrument. That being said, I have never had much experience in finding my own, and I feel that I have graduated from the one that I currently have. I'd appreciate any advice on qualities a good violin should have, and if you'd prefer a new violin over an old. My price range is $3,000 or less. The violin brands I have been interested in include Snow Violins, Jay Haide, Ming Jiang Zhu, and makers that live in my area. I am open to any suggestions, and appreciate all advice given.
