Instruments that work better than others.
Instrument Brands to stay away from!
Any instrument sold at a department or big box store like Costco or Walmart.
Any colored instruments – natural wood ONLY
Anything with no name
Brands that may work better:
Franz Hoffman Preludes or Etude (you can buy slightly blemished From Shar for cheap!
Shops to take a look that I highly recommend:
Andrew's Fine Violins
Strings that will make your instrument sound better:
A minimum quality well-made instrument will have a label inside and usually cost between $300-$500. Anything less than will cost more in the long run.
