  1. Any feedback on the Yahoo auction. What are these brand new violins that are less than $100. Are they good starter violins or are they just junk worth less than $30? What should one avoid?
  2. : : I am having trouble changing direction at the nut while playing a continuous note. How does one get that fluid change of direction? I've tried to relax and keep my hand loose , but I still have problems. I am also having trouble with my bow skipping. I have the bow tilted properly and try to keep the right pressure. Could my bow be too light? How do you know when you have just enough rosin?

  4. I was looking at a 1998 Santaro Lucci model violin with Chicago String Instruments on the label. The 1999 label also said Chicago String Instruments but also "from the workshop of Christopher Pu." Is the 1998 also from the Pu workshop? The price was around $2,200. Has anyone had any experience with these violins?
  5. There will always be a violin that sounds better. Even if you scrape and get the more expensive one, you may find one you like better a month later at a different shop. However, if you get the cheaper model, the one you like will be gone when you go to upgrade because violins with good sound are almost always sold a month after you encounter them if not sooner. Spend what you can afford at a shop with a vast selection so when the day comes when you hear another gem and you have more money, you can jump on it. What models were you looking at and what were the prices?
