I think I’d cry. I’ve never won anything, & I can’t afford a better violin than I have. (student model, slightly better grade) I can’t even afford lessons right now, & I’m teaching myself through YouTube at the moment, to at least get myself started. And I know how important it is to have an instrument you don’t have to constantly fight to get good sound from it. With a better quality violin, I would have an easier time knowing if the reason something sounds off, is me & my playing technique & not that I have a ‘Violin Shaped Object’.
