What should be included:
Additional costs:
  • Violin strings can break unexpectedly; it's good to have extras at $5-$50 (or more) each or $20-$200 or more for a set of four.
  • You'll need a music stand for practicing at home; they start around $10-$50 but can run $100-$200 or more.
  • Rosin for your bow will run $2-$25 or more, depending on quality and quantity.
Shopping for a violin:
  • Strings Magazine lists seven things to consider when buying a violin while eBay.com provides detailed descriptions and photos of what to examine when selecting a violin[2] . It's always a good idea to have your violin teacher or some other expert examine an instrument before you buy it. (Be aware that teachers are sometimes paid commissions when their students buy from local music stores.)
  • Lists of violin sellers or makers (called luthiers) are available from Strings Magazine and Violinist.com[3] .
