      Hi guys

      I am new to this forum and just someone who is only now learning the Violin.

      I was earlier using the violin provided by my class teachers but I think times I buy my own and start practicing at home as well.

      I don’t want to buy a professional, very expensive violin but also, don’t want a toy. I do have a few in mind but I’d love to know your recommendations.

      P.S. I hope this is the correct forum for such questions

      Hi Alinaviolin and welcome to the forum. I would recommend you take a look at the Beginner violins at the Fiddlershop:

      The Fiddlershop has an excellent reputation, is reasonably priced, and has good quality violins, and their customer service is excellent. I searched and searched when I decided to buy my first violin. It was so confusing for me. When I found Fiddlershop, with all their information and videos, I decided to buy from them, and I was not disappointed. My first violin was their Concert Violin. I bought a second one from them too, an Artist violin. Search around the internet; you will see that the Fiddlershop is the “go to” shop for many violinists and fiddlers.

      Hello Alinaviolin,

      If you are in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, I highly recommend John Montgomery’s shop in Raleigh. You can go and get expert information and opinion. John will ask you what your budget is, he will bring out many violins within your range, and not a penny more with some under budget. I think John brought out about 12….lol. And the one I purchased turned out to be under budget. You can play them all, (you are in a private room, by the way) giving you opportunity to discover which one speaks to you. You will not be rushed or pressured in any way, and all are excellent instruments. My friend and I went together and just had so much fun there. We both found instruments that spoke to us personally. Good Luck!
