Hello! Ive been reading the threads on this site for months and have learned SO much. This is my first posting.
I am 20 years old and am about to start violin lessons. I am really attracted to the deep, rich sound of gut-core strings but they seem to be geared towards advanced players- am a bit concerned that starting on them could be inappropriate. I have no idea really. Im leaning towards the new Pirastro Passione's.
I think if I had a brand new, shiny, cheap violin I would go for regular strings, but mine is around 200 years old and gut-core strings just seem so fitting.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
