In my search to buy a modern violin, I'm discovering how impossible finding the "right" violin actually is. I want something with great tone but what is that exactly. I'm finding that I can love the sound of a violin from afar but dislike it under my hear, or love it under my ear but dislike it from afar. My question is what are the qualities of great tone both from afar as well as under the ear and what were the tonal qualities, specifically, of violins that you've played that were great both under the ear and afar?
