This came up when I googled 5th position pure tone violins.
I am getting ready to upgrade my $5300 violin as it is not getting the clarity of tone I want when I need 5th position (Meditation from Thais). I am never going to be very good — started from zero at 68 and now at 78 I practice a lot and take lessons, but realize I am very limited. However, I do NOT want air in my high notes — I want clarity of tone.
Do you have recommendation o buying the violin (names makers, cost to expect, whatever?) My teacher will go with e.
There are some Romanian ones coming in to the music store 1018. Do you think this is good? Any help is appreciated. Jone
