I have played them both. Can't say that I prefer one over the other. They vary a lot from one to another. We (fiddlershop) have chosen not to sell them.
Just make sure whomever you buy from will allow you to make a return if you simply don't like the sound. You can never be guaranteed a good instrument no matter what we tell you about these instruments.

One thing about how I work. I have tested thousands of instruments but I only review the ones that I like for the money. I would rather not review an instrument than to tell the world how bad it is. It's not fair to the maker and distributor in case it's just a fluke that it was bad.

Thanks:) Anyone else who has an experience with the rental deals concerning these violins? Can you like tell me the downside of renting these violins from these places specifically? There are litterally thousands of reviews for kennedy and i think they are not fake so what do you say violinists?I live in asia. I'll have to get the violin shipped specially but i still will be buying on rental. It suits me financially:P

Where in Asia do you live?
80% of all violins made today (including Kennedy violins with 99% certainty) are made in China.
I don't think you'll find a US dealer willing to rent a violin to someone in Asia but I'm not completely sure.

Pakistan. China shares a border with us:P I did hear that a lot but i thought it wasn't true for all the violins(it's funny when you realize that the same violin that might have been made right next to my country travelled all the way to america and will be coming back home) According to Pakistani ideology, every other thing is manufactured by China. You have any suggestions relating to the fact that china is so close to my country and thus i should get the violin maybe idk ? They have no sites that i could find nor do i have anyone over there who could help.

Fiddlerman I appreciate your help a lot. I pondered over what i infered from your reply. This is literally the only good site that i have come across. The violins on this site are like strange copies of stard and such. I have like around 250 dollars. Can you go through this site and maybe see whether there's something worthwile? http://store.old-violin-house......ll-violins

I'm sorry but there is no way I can know anything about that shop. I could guess but I would rather not. For you it's good that there is a dealer in Shanghai.
