OK, I have been playing for a year now and I think I am making progress. I definitely need to practice more, but who doesn't?
The violins I have are good for me and I like playing both. One is a Scott Cao beginner/intermediate violin that my teacher likes. The other is a Yamaha electric, for silent practicing.
The problem I have is that I get an irrational itch to upgrade stuff every once in a while. I think it’s a guy thing. That itch has started for a new acoustic violin. I notice some weird tones every once in a while on the Scott Cao, but these are caused more by my bowing technique than the instrument. What should I do? What do you think my teacher will say if I show up with a new violin at the next lesson? I can aford something around $1000.
