I want to purchase a 1/4 size violin for my niece, but I don't want to spend a lot of money. The most I would want to spend is $300. I am in the New York City area and so far I've either found dealers who are out of my price range or ones who have their own monetary intentions. I've been browsing amazon.com, and since I've had a good relatioship with the company in the past I've been considering a few of the instruments they have, specifically Molinari N301-1 Romanian - High Quality 1/4 Size Student Violin Outfit (nitro finish) and the Molinari 301-3 Romanian - High Quality 3/4 Size Student Violin Outfit (oil finish). The latter is out of my price range but I'm willing to buy it if a few people here tell me it is a good buy. Oh, I need it asap.
