How does one choose a good violin or string instrument ?

 

There are plenty of options ranging from online shops of $50 dollars to top Italian makers of $80,000 . But what does a beginner really need? Here at Salient Strings, we believe that the early stages of learning a stringed instrument is the most important part. For a beginner,  there are 3 important things to look out for , playability, quality and price.

 

Playability:

The moment you put your hands on the strings and press your first notes, there should be no doubt that it is with complete ease. Often times, a child or adult stops learning the instrument because the pain is unbearable and distracting from creating a good sound. As such, they would end their journey of this wonderful experience.We set up our cellos in the shop so that every layman will be able to play the instrument with ease along with some guidance.

Quality:

Is the price you are paying for worth the quality? Many of the cheaper quality instruments are labelled as Violin Shaped Objects(VSOs) because they are made up of random pieces of wood with less than ideal workmanship. What you end up paying is a box which makes sound. You are giving up tone and gambling with the hopes that you get that one in a milllion that works.
All the instruments at Salient Strings has been curated and professionally set up by our Resident Luthier and all aftersales adjustments are covered by us. So you can have a peace of mind that we are providing the highest quality instruments at the most reasonable price.

Price:

Buying an instrument is an extremely personal experience. Are you planning to learn the instrument for a long term of 2 years and more? If so, investing in a good quality instrument will give more bang for the buck than buying a cheaper range one. We carry instruments ranging from $500-$60,000 so we are sure to be able to find a matching instrument for you. For the budget minded learners, we recommend the VL80/ VC90 which retails for udner $700. The instrument is a completely handmade instrument with healthy projection, optimised comfort and beautiful tone.
