I'm trying out a really nice handmade violin that is just tons better than my old "Suzuki Violin Co." violin. I really love the difference in sound and playability that the new violin makes, and I really think it frees up my technique considerably. However, I don't know how to explain to my parents exactly why it is worth it to shell out a pretty large chunk of money to get this violin - in other words, what specifically is it about a better violin that is making it so much easier to play? How exactly is having a good violin going to make a difference in my playing? Any specific points I should make?
