Okay guys and gals,
Although I will be eternally grateful to my CVN-200 for getting me started, I really don't like the build quality of the instrument. One of the seams is beginning to slowly part, the finish is unattractive and chipped in a few spots, and even when it is in tune playing an open string with Fiddlerman recommended Zyex stings the sound it produces is not appealing to my ear.
I have been saving for a while and would like to upgrade. I have around $500. What would be a good investment? I am not worried about all the accessories like a case or bow, just the instrument itself. Thank you in advance!
Never mind maneuvers, just go straight at them.
You probably know your best bet is to play several different violins in person. In the price range you are at, you will probably get a factory instrument. Many have learned that all violins created from the same factory are not equals. Also, more expensive is not necessarily better. I've heard of a great shop a couple hours from my house which a friend has recommended highly, where one can try out many instruments, or ask the employees to play for you.
Of course I'm a bit of a gambler. I got a good deal on my instrument on ebay. Just over $200, and I never had to leave my house. Pretty convenient!
Raymond from this site bought a K550 in which he loves.
I haven't seen him around for a little while but check out the violin and his review on the site. Kohr violins are great and 100 guaranteed.
Wanted to ask about this violin.
Did someone hear it. I was looking for a video in the internet to listen. But no luck yet.. My teacher wants me to have a "concert" violin and i know that my current violin is a cr*p, but i don't know if i have enough skills to play a good violin though... I'd like to buy this violin too in a couple month..
