bestviolins ebay "Italian" violin in The Auction Scroll Posted May 18, 2009 · Report reply well, coinsidentaly I was looking for a full size violin for my son on ebay and came across bestviolins listings. I wish I could go to a violin shop and have my son try several violins, but we don't have a decent shop around here and financially, we just can't afford thousands of dollars right now for a violin. So, I need someone's honest opinion. I don't care if it's a fake Italian or German. But are these violins decent quality as far as the pictures show? They certainly look beautiful although I don't have vast knowledge in judging good violins. I can tell some bad ones to a certain degree like really cheap ones. My biggest concern is the quality and the sound. I don't expect ones being top quality as good as the violins that cost thousands of dollars when I only pay hundreds, but are they decent enough for my son to play for several years until we can afford buying better ones for him? Your input will be greatly appreciate it.
