I have decided to put the violin aside and go back to piano studies after almost 7 years of violin. Maybe I could benefit from second opinions?
Actually, I have enjoyed playing the violin and I think I've made good progress for an amateur. I've played in church a few dozen times over the years and that has been fun.
I am losing the patience for the constant attention that the instrument may need almost daily. An example is my box of violin strings which I would value around $500! And I've lost track of chin and shoulder rests.
Do I own the violin or is it the other way around?
The point is that my violin never gives me a break for too long. What is the violin price point for consistent behavior?
What do the pros know that I don't know about violin maintenance ?
