About two years ago, I started renting a student violin from Music and Arts and after about a year, I bought the rental. It cost $700 without the additional fees that I paid for renting it. They had a policy where you can use the money that you spent to rent the violin towards your final payment. In total, the violin was around $900-1000. After looking to buy another violin for my brother, we realized that many student violins were nowhere near that amount. My violin is a Strobel ml 85. http://www.strobelstrings.com/instruments/strobel-violin-ml-85/
That is the link to the model. I feel like I paid too much for my violin since I am looking to get an upgrade from this student violin. Please tell me if this was a bad deal or not.
