Yamaha Violin for confused beginner?

August 9, 2005 at 05:57 AM · Hi, Im a beginner, and after a couple weeks of reseach, im still a bit confused as to what 'sort' of violin I should buy,

I hear the best violin comes from a violin shop, where the instrumenst are handmade, set up professionly, and well maintained by an actual violinist, but i figured theres no need for all that untill i have advanced a bit.

Or should I?

Ive looked and looked, and am not interested by the obviously cheaper brands like Enrico.

Im just trying to get my money,\'s worth

Im considering buying a Yamaha V5. Because I used to play sax, and from what i know, Yamaha is a trusted brand, at least for a student.


At the bottom of the page you can see the specifications.

Just wondering if for AUS $580.00, fully set up, with a case, rosin and bow, its worth it?

It doesnt seems too bad, from what I can read. :)

I havnt really heard anything about Yamaha violins and any information would be great..

If not can you reccomend a good student violin, is a Suzuki violin any good?

Thanks in advance!
