I am an adult beginner, having played the violin for only 2 and /2 years, and I am a very frequent visitor to this website. I can say that I am at least as passionate about the violin as any of the other adult beginners who post to this discussion board. My question is about an instrument for someone like me. I would like to skip the stages of going through increasingly better violins as I progress (very slowly) towards a certain level, and just get the nicest violin I can afford. What I would like to know is how good a violin should I get, that would make a difference to me in my playing and practicing? And knowing that my technique will never be wonderful (in this lifetime), how good a violin is too good?
