Gliga upgrade

May 8, 2018, 11:16 AM · Hi,

I'm looking an upgrading my Gliga Gems 1 violin to the Gama model.

Would the Gama be a major improvement to my Gems 1?

Although some people suggest that you try unaffordable violins to get a feel for great instruments (it's a great idea), some people have greed issues, so please consider your personality before following this suggestion.

Edited: May 29, 2018, 7:09 PM · If you are in the Pasadena, California, area, go to the Gliga shop and try out various instruments. I generally like Gliga instruments for students, but I do find them to sometimes be inconsistent. I once found a lesser-ranked Gliga much more appealing in its performance, sound, ease of handling, than the top of the line instruments they handle. Let them know you're coming so they can have a dozen or so set up for you to try.
