In my opinion, that depends on what you want to achieve. If you want your instruments to sound like an instrument, you would pay good money. An affordable violin can be used for recording music without damaging the quality of sound. This isn’t to say that an inexpensive violin won’t sound good. The problem is that you must realize that you are going to be buying a piece of equipment to play that can make you feel in great shape. If you don’t have that great sense of taste to know when you are playing your best, and that is just as important as having excellent music-listening skills, it is very likely that you will get a piece of instruments that is too expensive for its worth and that you will not enjoy playing.
There has been a great deal of interest in the cost of a violin. What is this price, and how does it relate to performance? Can an inexpensive violin become an instrument that everyone wants to play, or is it still too expensive?
This all depends on what you want to do with your violin. Is your instrument for private practice? If so, what is your budget and how are you going to earn your income? If your aim is to have your violin to perform with in your living room, why not play it yourself? Can a violin with lower quality sounds be played with a violin that is not expensive? Or is the best price you can get a viola or grand, depending on your budget?
Do you want to go on camping trips to explore parts of the world such as Europe, Japan, and Africa, or can you afford to have your instrument professionally cleaned or repaired by experienced craftsmen? Is it worthwhile to hire a private violinista if you can’t afford to pay someone personally? If you are on an exchange program, will an affordable violin change your life for the better so that you can learn to play another instrument and not have your violin go broke while you travel? If so, can you tell me more about how you are dealing with the cost of your instrument? My answer to all of these questions would have been a clear “no”.
Can you afford to buy a new violin if you want an instrument of exceptional quality? For some people, yes! They are buying a piece of equipment that they consider to be a masterpiece. I have seen some fine examples of great violins used in public, for which the buyer had taken out several thousand dollars in credit card fees, and now spent that extra money on a new violin. They
