NEW VIOLINS in ALL SIZES:
As a teacher, I know how important it is to get a good sounding yet affordable violin. Violins from most violin shops are good sounding but not affordable. Many of my students have spent $600 to $950 at Sydney violin shops for a beginners violin.
Online violins are affordable but not good sounding. I personally have to spend 2 hours to make an online purchased violin playable and sounding good. This involves adjusting the height and thickness of the bridge and the height of the nut for easy playing in first position. The position of the soundpost is also adjusted to improve the sound considerably. At Strings2u the beginners violins are still affordable at $200 to $300 and good sounding. Rental violins are also available for $30 a month and a refundable $200 deposit.
