How does one choose a good violin
or string instrument ?

Online shops offer plenty of options ranging from a cheap mass produced instrument which costs $50 to a $80,000 Italian-made treasure. But what does a beginner really need? Here at Salient Strings, we believe that the key to having a strong foundation begins with your instrument. Here are 3 pointers to look out for:

 

Playability:

Without the right instrument, the discomfort and pain which easily distracts one from producing a good tone deters many people from pursuing music. A musical instrument should feel like an extension of your own body and the dynamical response between you and the instrument plays a vital role in determining its' playability.

Our instruments in the gallery are thoughtfully set-up for learners of every level to ensure a smooth learning experience.

 

Quality:

Did you know? Many of the cheaper quality instruments are labelled as Violin Shaped Objects (VSOs) because they are made up of scrapped pieces of wood with a less ideal form of workmanship. Many amateurs tend to gamble with cheaply-mass produced instruments in hopes that they would find a gem amidst the crate of empty sounding boxes.

The instruments in Salient Strings are professionally set up by our resident luthier to create a sound experience unique to you.

 

Price:

Depending on the amount of investment, an instrument can potentially last for a lifetime. Salient String carries a range of instruments from the price of $500 to $60,000 - Surely, there will be an instrument within your budget which caters to your learning abilities.

For the passionate learners with financial constraints, the VL80/ VC90 is able to bring you to the intermediate levels of learning. At an affordable price of under $700, the optimised comfort this instrument provides encourages a smooth projection of tone.
