I currently play on a $500 European made violin and a $300 bow. This instrument is better than the cheap chinese VSO that I once had. However, I do not feel fully contented with the tonal richness and quality of my violin. I am infatuated with the timbre of fine instruments. I have plans to trade this one or purchase an expensive violin in the future. Is it worth it to order one from Corilon or take a vacation to Germany or Italy when the time comes and make a purchase there? I don't feel satisfied with the ones at Shar and Southwest Strings and intend to purchase an old/antique instrument. I hope there are no downsides to this.
Any other suggestions would also be deeply appreciated
