What do you think about this video?

NovaCygni: Clock in the background is in perfect focus...

zobots diys: Hey Alison how many violins do you currently have?

zobots diys: Wow she said £100 is cheap I got mine for £25 and my tutor says the sound is excellent

B. R.R: I got my first violin for 60 dollar and my second violin for 200 dollar and its chinese violin the name of the brand is scott and guan i dont know is it worth it to spend 200 dollar for chinese violin ?? And will you do a review on scott and guan violin please

Baron Calle: Got mine for 72$ student quality but sounds antique! Lovely rich tones and fantastic wood. Will buy dominant strings, thanks for the tips! Cheers from the Philippines~

manohad5: I got a cheap violin off ebay couple of days ago watching your videos my violin doesn't sound as good as yours kinda bummer
just a question , I have a right chin rest and I play on the left does it matter ?
I play without a chin rest

Cinematica118: My violin is a concert violin of a $400 worth and I have all the knowledge but for some reason I get attracted to your videos ._.

Jackson Cowan: I know people with 150 strings. Weird to think

YAN: I feel like all the money spent on these combined would be better spent on a higher quality violin.

motohead342: No worries, you're still gorgeous! It fact, you look 20 yrs old! LOL!!! It's an old trick. There is a youtube vid where a player compares a $65 student violin to several from the 1700's that are worth 100,000 to 200,000 dollars. I immediately thought the strings were cheap and would have narrowed the slim gap even more! And the vibration seasoning would have also narrowed the gap over time. I put a set of D'Addarios Orchestral on mine and it made a huge difference, for $35. Yea, they were half of what the violin cost, but that is what creates the sound(Bow + Rosin also), the body amplifies it. I play a 35" scale 6 string fretless electric bass that cost HUNDREDS of dollars and my Roundwound Nickel plated or Stainless Steel strings are CARVIN, by LaBella, and cost $16 a set. Go figure?!

The Fox Laboratory: I literally got my violin at a thrift store

luthier47: Alison, you have done more for my amateur violin playing in 3 days than the years they have been in my guitar studio. Thanks for all of the tips and ideas. I'm actually learning to play it. 👍🏼

Rach Martell: For violins that come without the bridge fitted, will that have an impact on the sound post?

Chris Jarkovsky: Do student violins stay in tune well or is it worth it to get better tuners

Julian Leon: I have a 4K violin

Danna Banana: i bought some strings for 99 cents and a violin for around 25 bucks, they work completely, but since im a beginner i probably dont have the ear for how it is supposed to sound

corabug8: i have a student violin but it was 800$ does that make it better then some other ones?

sgtcrab1: Pirastro Obligato, or dominant.

rich gouette: note to my fellow Americans: she's speaking with a British accent... so we know she's telling the absolute , unvarnished truth.
;p
no, J/K but, seriously we all love it, and your videos are priceless, dog yelping & all.
You do a wonderful service to the musical world: thank you!
I'm just about to pull the trigger as we say, on a cheapo violin..then onto 'pimping' (that never gets any easier to say)

Tayler Long: I think it would be really interesting to watch a video about demos before and after changing the strings and the bow, etc. To see how the sound changes and whatnot! I would love to watch that

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
