I'm looking into getting a new violin, and I have a couple choices, which is best?
My budget isn't too large, since I'm still in high school. If you have any other violin recommendations, let me know :)
Thanks for the help
Go to some stores and try as many violins as you can!
What Lyndon said.
Classical, The answers above are certainly correct. Even such great makers as Stradivari, whose 300-year old instruments are now selling for more than 10,000 times the price of the instruments you are considering can vary significantly from item to item. So, you must test the instruments you consider in person and also have time to work with "the one" at home before your money is finally committed.
Like above, go to a shop. Test everything in your budget range. Test one a little bit outside it just to see what the difference is. Narrow it down to your favourites, then... pick the one with the nicest colour. Ask to take it home for a week. If the week is up and you have nothing to complain about then there is your violin.
I highly recommend watching this video by TwoSet on the darker elements of instrument dealership: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAU_6huLGQ8
Cautionary tale, if it's at all possible take your teacher or a violinist friend with you to the store for a blind listening test. I almost bought the wrong violin last year as I was shopping with my eyes without realizing it. My memory conflated the looks of one instrument with the sound of another at my first visit.
Catherine's point is a good one. You want someone along with you to play the violins so you can hear what they will sound like to people listening to you. One that sounds good under your ear may not sound so good to those listening to it.
