My son needs a new violin apparently. He has a basic one but now needs one to go up to Grade 8/diploma. What is a reasonable price to pay? what makes do you suggest?
I am no expert by all means, but I own a violin which I know is ok to grade 8+ (possibly up to diploma level) and I am happy with, it is an Otto Jos Klier 72, it came with bow and case at £700
ps, you might want to ask moderators to move your thread to the strings forum 'just in case'? but you should get enough replies on here too.
