I currently own a ~$8,000 violin, but I'm thinking about looking into getting a more professional violin (in the $15,000-$20,000 range) before auditioning for grad schools (I'm a violin performance major). This is what my professors and peers seem to agree is a good range, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. Is this too much to spend on an instrument at my level? Also, if it's not too much to ask, how do other students find the funds to purchase such expensive instruments? I've tried to do my own research regarding financing, but I can't come up with any actual helpful information. I would really appreciate any and all opinions on this topic!
