I have not been here in a VERY long time, I was learning Fiddle songs on a Violin my brother bought at a yard sale that I bought from him sadly he would not stop asking if I was giving up yet ready to throw the fiddle away etc over and over SO I gave it back to him
Now I am in the market for a new Fiddle/Violin to learn on that will grow with me. I am not into classical I lean more toward Bluegrass and Irish music so looking for something that will sound good in those genres. Also looking at a all electric or acoustic-electric (to use with a Looper) and while I would LOVE a Skyinbow S1T4 Green Transparent (My favorite color) While I can afford my dream Violin I am not sure it is fit to learn on but maybe a future reward for my progress. I do not plan to play in public or a band this is for my own pleasure as it relaxes me. Any suggestions? I would like to stay below $1,700, I already have a case but will need a suggestion for a good Bow as well.
I also like the Mark Wood Concert Deluxe acoustic-electric because of the Wittner fine tuning pegs
Let time fly I am having fun.
I'll bet the Mark Wood deluxe would be a fine instrument. The Realist 5-String might not be a bad way to go either. As far as bows go, I've heard great reviews for the CodaBow Joule for the electric violin.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
