We have two beginner violinists in the family. One measures slightly above 24" one measures 1/8" shy of 24". Can we buy a full sized instrument for the two to share? Will that 1/8 " make a difference? The one who is just shy of 24" won't be growing (shrinking would be more likely - ha!)
Renting is not an option.
And where do we start In selecting an instrument? We have no dreams of playing in a symphony, we just want something to learn on and enjoy at home. It doesn't have to be pricey, but it shouldn't sound horrid either - something enjoyable. How much $ can we expect to pay? Should we look at used? I'm really not wanting to leave the hundreds.
Any other accessories selecting tips that a newbie wouldn't necessarily know?
My selection may be limited to the local Long and McQuade.
