Fiddlershop is currently looking for a 7th repair/setup/luthier technician to join our team. Send PM if you are interested.
I am now an intermediate violin player. I am looking for ~$2000 classical violin. My favorite types of music are classical music, waltz, ballet. I love Tchaikovsky. I would like to find the violin that has a sound which is perfect to play the Nutcracker, the Sleeping Beauty or even the Swan Lake. Could you please help me to find a violin based on my description? If you have a recommendation of the violin, could you please send me the link where to get it?
Thank you very much.
I can only refer you to the fiddlershop, and the demos that Fiddlerman (Pierre) has do e for many of the instruments they sell. Personally, as a relative beginner, I have no other frame of reference but there are dozens, if not hundreds of short demos by Pierre of violins from the most basic 90, or was it 100 dollars WAY up to the many thousands of dollars - check em out on you tube as a starter for ten,....
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
If you are going to spend +$2000 on a violin I would suggest you go in person to a dedicated violin store and try out several instruments and string combinations to find what you love. If your interested in buying a Fiddlerman instrument or similar (aka online) then I would strongly suggest you find someone who one near you and try it in person... because for that kind of money, personal preference in the sound is key.
