    Help Buying Violin

    What is your exact question on buying a violin? I think you're already on the right track.

    Why do you look for a violin by this particular maker.

    Aberdeen Violin

    If you're looking for a new violin, I wouldn't care about the maker too much. Rather, I would worry about sound, feel, playability and price to stay finnancially reasonable.

    What size of strings should I use?

    Try 3/4 strings. They'll do the trick.

    Opinion(s) on this cello?

    Hello, First of all, I wouldn't buy online if you can't return the instrument if dissatisfied. This is because you must make sure that this instrument sounds good and is easy to use. You can't test this without actually playing on it. Also, visual appearance won't tell you the exact qualities of sound, other than constructional oddness.

    Happy Easter! What's for dinner?

    Of course not if it's part of your culture.

    Happy Easter! What's for dinner?

    We don't really celebrate Easter, so it's just like any old Sunday. Just performed at a concert this morning. Happy Easter! M
  9. To answer your questions, every person is different. Some people don't mind placing their chins on the small tail of the Guarneri chin rest. Some people may use a pad to compensate.

    Cleaning your violin

    I just wipe rosin off the body with a dry cloth.

    Questions about a violin I plan on getting.

    I agree with Will. It is good to compare violins. Bring your Cremona with you and compare it with what you're buying.

    Violin by Joeseph C Cordell

    Are you happy with the sound? Why would you get it appraised (out of curiosity)?

    Questions about a violin I plan on getting.

    I agree with the above suggestion, but it's hit and miss. I've definitely had luck with craigslist, but it's not easy to find what you want. This could just be my area, though.

    What do you plan on doing with this violin? Selling it? Playing it?
