Choosing a violin for yourself or for someone else can prove to be a daunting task. You find yourself faced with a number of questions. Which option is better, getting a used instrument or a brand new one? Do I rent or buy? And with the prices ranging from reasonable to “deplete all your savings,” what is the first step? Before embarking on a search, there are a number of things you need to put into consideration:

  • How much are you willing to spend?
  • Is the instrument for a beginner or an experienced player? And is the player an adult or a child?
  • Is the violin for taking lessons, solo performance, teaching, professional use, school orchestra, gigging or for all those uses?

You can either choose to rent or buy a violin. This is determined by a number of factors. What are your musical and financial needs? Will you have easy access to upgrades and repairs? If you plan on using the instrument for an extended period of time, then the viable option is to buy one. Zaret and Sons, Inc. has a wide range of violins for sale.

When it really comes down to it, the most important thing is to get a violin that you actually love. Never compromise by settling for something other than what you want as far as looks, sound or even cost goes. You should be proud of your instrument. Remember, if music is your passion, you might as well make your long-term investment worth it.
