Since Viba wanted to hear my $40+ violin, this is how it "sings" (note: I'm showing the scales and the vibrato, you can comment my mistakes{intonations and vibrato}, thanks :) ) even though it's a cheap one, i love how it sounds :) :

(btw, I'm still practising Paganini's cantabile...I really dunno if I can finish it this weekend, but I will try my best :) )

Hey, that was good.  I love the sound of your violin.  There are many "better" violins around that sound worse.  ( They are called "A violin for the advancing student" as opposed to someone in reverse (?)

Hang tough !

Did you really pay about $40 ?  From where ?

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

@Fiddlestix, ok, thanks for bringing that to my attention , gonna tweak that later smile , gonna try practising scales with a tuner, should be good :) , my finger chart was already in my brain...patterned to my fingers, but looks like some of them are wrong....thanks fiddlestix :)

@Oliver, lol, actually, this is the cheapest brand of violin that i can afford here, the more expensive ones are $70 and above, i've changed the E string...and it sucked...well, gonna look for some new strings tomorrow, hope i can buy one :)

cheers! - ⁰ℨ

Nice sounding violin!  "Cheapest" is not always automatically "worst".  At about 40$, I'd say you got quite a good bargain there.  Very pleasant sound.

You're sounding good, Oz.  Coming right along.

Well done, that IS a nice winding violin.good buy!

I just bought a cheap chinese imported "antiqued" violin.
Was gonna send it back coz it has a couple of "issues" but a local luthier set up the sound post for me and I played it for the first time today. It's now definitely a "keeper"!
Just goes to show, price isn't everything!If someone told me, before I knew, it was worth a thousand dollars, I would have believed them!

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

The sound of the violin is quite good IMO.
Congratulations.

I realize you are just demonstrating the sound, and your intonation is not bad, but figure out which key you would like to play in when playing a scale and apply the right intervals (accidentals).
For example, if you are going to play a G major scale, play an F# and all the other notes natural.

You have a nice tone, and it's impressive to see that you are starting to play vibrato already after such a short period of time.
