  1. Hi, I've done some searching for previous posts already. However, I would like to hear more first hand experience. I am looking for a violin for my daughter, 2nd year violin, 12 yrs old. I want something nice, good value that will last her until at least high school. I've read the stringsmagazine.com 's recommendation of 18 violin outfits. One of the largest dealer in Houston is H&H Music. I've visited them, they seem to gear you toward Gunter Maiback. I think they sell alot of these. They said they would match a competitor's price, since I told them the Scherl & Roth R302 outfit's price from Music123.com is cheaper than their price. For me to spend less than $1000, which should I get Scherl & Roth R302, Knilling (which model?), or Wm Lewis & Sons? Those 3 i've read are good student violin. H&H said that Scherl & Roth is not that popular unless you buy their $3000+ range violin. Then they tried to show me the Sandner & Maibach. I would like something European made. Please help. By the way, this would be a full size. Thanks,
