Have you ever wondered how to find the perfect violin? Weather it's more of the comfort than the sound or the sound more than the comfort. It's sound. You never want a violin that sounds scratchy or something similar to that. Other wise it is never going to sound good unless you pay 150 dollars on getting it re-strung. You want a violin that makes a ring ing kind of sound. It is really hard to describe it in words. But if you heard it than you would understand.
If you've worked on the sound then your ready for comfort. If you liked the sound of the violin but not the comfort that can always be fixed. If it's uncomfortable than it's the chin rest. You can always fix that. If you are also looking for a proper shoulder rest than you never need top worry. All shoulder rests are the same.
Now let's talk about a bow. Some bows are heavy and some bows are light. Again, it's not about the comfort. It's about the sound. The sound always needs to sound smooth. Just like the violin. Everything needs to sound smooth. The weight you can always get used to.
Now the case. The case is the most simple of it all. All you need to do is get a couple different types of cases. One that is rectangular and one that looks like the shape of the violin. I reccommend the one that's it the shape of the violin. It is so much lighter. You want to get the one that's lighter because if you have a bunch of music to carry then you won't want to carry around something heavy as well.
This is the best way to get what things are right for you and how to get the right violin.
