I Am 15 years old and have been playing the violin for 6 years and is doing diploma level ABRSM standard.Our family are quite poor so we can not afford good instruments I have used a $300 violin for 4 years and get very frustrated every time I practise. I get very unmotivated when I play with this violin. I am play sant seans condo capriccioso,mozart violin concerto nm4 and kalebleskys violin concerto. This is the general music I play. Yesterday a friend of my violin teacher kindy lend me a violin worth $3000 in till I do my diploma exam then I have to give it back but to me the violin sound more like a $2000 violin since.of it's tone also it is very difficult to play on this violin in the higher positions on the g string which kind of set me of. I have tried a lot of violins in the $3000 from old to new one at violin stores and my playing instantly improved. A lot of my friends that play in y orchestra have this price range of violins and sound much better than the one I have now. My school is trying to figure out something on helping me fundraise a violin for me but they want to know a suitable price range of a violin that can last me for years but in my opinion $3000 is not enough. What are your thoughts if $3000 I enough for a violin for diploma student
