Gliga Vasile violin

Instruments: Is anyone familiar with this violin? Does anyone know how it compares with the Andreas Eastman 305 reviewed in the "Strings" article?

I am an adult beginner student, and have only been taking lessons for about a few months. I have been renting a typical school band type instrument and am now interested in buying a violin. I've read the article in "Strings" which gives a guide to purchasing your first violin. I'm trying out a Gliga 'Vasile' violin right now and like it, after having tried several vioins at a local, reputable music store. But of course it is a noticable improvement, even by my beginner standards and ear, over the rental instrument I had. So, I have two questions: Is anyone familiar with this violin? I know it would be more than fine for me now. But I want to still be happy with it as I ever so slowly, tortuously, improve, in say 10 years. Does anyone know how it compares with the Andreas Eastman 305 reviewed in the "Strings" article? I have the opportunity to try one of these when the store gets it in and exchange if I prefer. But again, at this point I don't have much background to try to judge. Thanks for your thoughts.

Read about Vasile Gliga violins in the archive, under 'Instruments', the title is "Have You Tried Maestro Vasile Gliga Violins".

I play a Gliga and I love it! The tone is beautiful. I am also a beginner and noticed a difference in my playing after picking ip this violin. I couldn't part with it.
