Has anyone got one? I think I would do better with one. I'm ooooooooooold (well, 30), but small... 5'0 with tiny hands (can just stretch an octave on the piano as long as there are no notes in between!!), and I've been playing a full-size violin since I was 15ish. (Haven't grown since then...)
But it just *feels* too big. Or maybe it's just my playing, and I could learn to grow into it and feel comfortable?
How much are 7/8 size violins? I bought a new violin a couple of years ago...treated myself to a semi-decent one (£500) after I'd struggled through to Grade 7 violin at school on a beginners instrument!
Do you think a 7/8 size would be a good investment for me? I'm just about to re-start lessons.
