I have a cheap (and bad) violin. I bought it used and it was a bad decision: it doesn’t worth the price I paid. I’ve playing it for 10 months.
Today I visited a luthier, a young guy who makes beautiful violins. He has offered me an used one, and I am shocked for the difference with my instrument. I can try for a month, and then decide, but it’s hard not to keep it, because my violin sounds awful comparing with this.
First I bought was 200€, although we think it’s a 100€ quality, no more. Now I have this violin that I can buy for 1300€. It’s another universe.
So, quality is quality, new or 2nd handed. You have to decide how much you pay. I’ve had this bad violin but it has done his job. Now I now much better what I want.
