I am not very familiar with violins in general. I have been playing for a couple months now and still have an instrument from the music school but I plan on studying abroad for a while and since I can't take the borrowed instrument abroad I would have to buy my own one.
But I can't afford a few thousand dollars still I would like to have a relatively good instrument.
I am not under pressure right now to buy something. I just want to keep my eyes open and it would be really helpful if I knew what to watch out for.
Is there a special wood that is rather good or one that I should avoide...etc. Things that I can maybe see with my own eyes or find out by reading an instrument description.
Everything would be helpful.
