Hello I recently just started playing the violin again. The violin i currently have is 3/4 size. I was going to order a new violin. I'm 5'0 and thinking of getting a full size. Should i get a 3/4 violin or a full size violin? Help me please T_T

If you can possibly use a 4/4 violin I would go with that.  The difference in the sound is very great.  If you just can't seem to be able to use a 4/4 try to find a 7/8. My daughter is 41 and 4' 10" but she can still use a 4/4.

Thank you. You helped me decide to go with the 4/4. smile
