I have been playing a violin bought of Ebay for about 2 years now and I really need a new one. My mum was talking to a violin teacher (not mine) who said that Chinese violins are good value. She said that if you pay $2000 for a Chinese violin the instrument will be of the same quality as if you paid $4000 for a German or French one. Does anyone know if this is true?
I want a violin that will last me the rest of my life and will get me through a Bachelor of Music at Uni. However I don't ever expect to be a famous soloist and I am a student so I do have a bit of a budget. Is there anything I should know? What should I be looking for? And how much should I be expecting to spend?
