Viol-winner: China has some of the best violins in The world though. It's just the factory ones that suck. My Chinese violin sounds better than a lot of American violins I've heard. It's like assuming all Americans are fat and unathletic, while the America has medals for athletics
Alberto Morales: im getting my 1st violin next year
Sally Taylor: You seem like a nice person but may I suggest a bit of pre video recording planning goes a long way. It's a lot of minutes 'wasted' when you repeat the same stuff over & over again.
OGstreetracer nissan: I bought a old hopf violin for $60. what can I do to pimp that out.
Paoze Chang: hey when you pimp out your violin can I please have them
matthew hernandez: I promised myself to start learning a new instrument this year. I decided Violin and I came across your videos super informative thanks for all of them!
Jason Gromov: I'm bad in English, so, please, explain, what is "pimp"?
monkee Adkins: Hey I've been studying the violin for years and I've loved classical music and strings for as long as I can remember. I play many instruments but never the violin until today! My wife bought me an Oldenburg 4/4 for xmas and I just NOW OPENED IT! I'm so excited to embark on my journey to become a violinist. Your videos are helping me in every way possible. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and skill
the Doctor: it changes because over time the Wood becomes more supple and it allows for the instrument to resonate better
Kenneth Nielsen: Very good, covering all the main points. Appreciate your help with this. I also would recommend that cheap violins may have pegs that stick or cannot be tuned easily... to take them out and scrub the contact surface with regular blackboard chalk... this will make them turn and adjust properly and hold tune also.
Matthew Walz: I'm in 7th grade and trying to learn violin,can you name some beginner level songs?
Jenna McGee: my violin was $44 that includes the violin, bow, case and rosin
Trinitro phenylnitramine: Before learning the violin, I played the guitar and the strings and the type of wood and craftsmanship are the main things that affect the sound quality. Is it the same for violin?
Trinitro phenylnitramine: The violin I just bought has a very scratchy A string. Thought it was the way I used the bow at first but the other strings were quite good, so it must be the string. I will buy a new set of strings and see if it helps.
Gorby459: Thank you,
Gorby459: Hi I recently bought a second hand Stentor violin for my son and being a Mandola player I know very little about violins. I did however notice when I brought the violin home the G string was a light gauge similar to the E string. Is this normal?
Lou M LL: I am 57, am I too old to learn?
Jacqueline Jordan: OMG I will admit an upgrade on strings make such a difference! I bought a Mendini MV300 . Not bad for a beginner violin however I just put on a set of Dominant strings and it sounds so much better. I do have one question, at what point does one start to upgrade. I personally wouldnt upgrade because I am very new at playing but I know that someday I will want to upgrade.
