Buying a New Violin

December 27, 2005 17:02

Question... is it possible for a beginner to own a violin that is too much for him/her? I am considering buying either the Kallo Bartok or Michael Todd II violin from Stringworks. I was told the that the Kallo Bartok is less forgiving than the Michael Todd II. Thanks everyone. Let me say, I am impressed with the talent I have seen on this board, and everyone's considerable youth!
