what do yall think of the mendini violins on the kk music store? the one's that are 69-75 dollars.
and gals 😉
Are you actually thinking of getting a violin or what gstretch?
Mendini 650 is good. The lower budget ones will probably get you in trouble learning violin because of the lack of quality control in China and not knowing where to get the violin setup to sound alright. Mendini is made by Cecilio but I think they are using cheeper builders?
I think I can recommend a violin with traditional finish as opposed to a colored or painted one. I have a blue Cecilio violin. In addition to the paint on it, it also has a layer of primer, and I think a topcoat of Polyurethane. All this conspires to kill the amount of sound coming out of the instrument. It sounds ok, but it could be better. I bought the blue one because I figured, I might as well have fun! So far so good!
I saw fiddlerman with the 650 and what I read into what he said was (with time to settle in and a better set of strings this violin could have a really sweet sound and be a real good buy) This is going to be my choice with the close grain of the wood, the solid back it sounded good to me. I'm 63 this will be my first violin. But what I have learned is not to defeat your self. If you buy to cheep you will never stay with it long enough to find out if it is You or the tool your using.
