Report on kid's violin purchase
FYI-some time ago i asked for suggestions on finding the equivalent of "Seagull guitar brand/maker, but for violin instead of guitar", for my daughter who was moving up to 4/4 size. Anyway, we took a chance and bought online the Fiddlerman Apprentice. After several months now, we are still very happy with it(though it seems loud enough for her to blow out our windows if shehad a mind to). I think she'll be good for at least a few more years now. Esp since her main is piano. Thanks again everyone (i had forgot my password until now)
Congratulations on finding a suitable instrument for your daughter! The folks at Fiddlerman know their stuff! I've bought a lot of things from them, although not one of their branded instruments. Very easy to deal with and very nice.
Sounds like you found the necessary Strat-O-Various. Congrats!
