I have seen this violin online and was wondering if anyone could recommend it? It would be for my daughter who will need a 3/4 size violin after completing her grade 2 exam. We only have one small music shop which sells a limited range of violins nearby, so can't try before we buy. This violin should only last a couple of years (taking her to grade 4 standard) before she would need a full size violin and I want a decent violin, but don't want to spend too much at this stage.
Her teacher wants her to work on her bowing technique, so thought that the composite bow included in this outfit would be a good idea.
The online supplier offers a standard set up or an improved one with a strings upgrade - is this worth it, bearing in mind it would then be send in the post? Or is it a better idea to buy the standard set up and take it to the local shop for better strings if they're dire?
Any advise would be much appreciated.
