I am looking at upgrading my daughters violin. She is currently playing a Strunal 1/4 size Violin. I need to move up to a 1/2. There are not many local shops here that are very helpful with regard to helping me suss out the best quality/price. (Only one shop, and the help is clueless). So, looking for some input on picking up an instrument that not only sounds great, but is somewhat budget minded. Everywhere I look points me to the Suzuki Model 220. But, wonder if I would be only paying for the name, and if there are better options out there. I am looking to pay in the $200-$400 range. My apologies if this is the wrong forum. And feel free to move it if I offend. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone cares to offer up.
