I guess you make a good case for chasing better sound in a violin as long as one can afford it. Nevertheless, I am enjoying my year-old violin and my credit card bills are still barelymanageable; I just do not want them over what I can afford. However, it is more about the fact that I need to be sure that my house budget in the long run could afford having a $3,000 violin at home.
Perhaps with my earlier reference to Megabucks–which is not everyone’s dream but many’s, of hitting a really big Megabucks jackpot here, there, or anywhere but in Vegas–I obfuscated the real issue: living and playing fiddle within one’s means.
Is it indeed possible to try playing a $3,00 violin for a trial period? Just is more than an idea or a rhetorical question.
