I wonder how ones justifies a radical upgrade… in a violin from an intermediate to … perhaps just a more-expensive-yet-better intermediate violin.
It seems like one can be chasing a better sound through more dollars and would not the money be better spent paying off credit cards…
Sometimes however, I just hate having a mediocre violin even though my skill level might still still remain at slightly better than mediocre. I mean, what can I get in the way of a great violin for $3,000 instead of $1,500? It is a maddening bicycle. Since I live in Vegas I or you might as well go for Megabucks!
