Violin counselor

The violin is considered one of the most sophisticated instruments. Because learning is not so easy. It takes a lot of patience because it is not so easy to elicit the right notes from the instrument. The first matching tones require many hours of practice and experience. It is not necessarily on the violin when the first lessons are frustrating, the instrument just makes funny sounds and the fun is not quite ready yet. This is completely normal and is synonymous with high-quality, expensive instruments so.

The size must be right

Violins come in many different sizes. It is important that the musical instrument fits the height of the player (s), because the violinmust be comfortable between the chin and shoulder, with the hand and the slightly bent arm, the instrument is only supported. If too much force is needed in the hand, the notes on the strings may not be learned properly. The violin has no cuffs, such as the guitar, which could help with orientation. A rough orientation offers the following list:

– 1/16 violin with a total length of about 38 cm for children between 3 and 5 years
– 1/8 violin with a total length of about 42.5 cm for children between 4 and 6 years
– 1/4 violin with a total length of about 46 cm for children between 5 and 7 years
– 1/2 violin with a total length of about 52 cm for children between 6 and 8 years
– 3/4 violin with a total length of about 56 cm for children between 7 and 10 years
– 4/4 violin with a total length of about 59 cm for children from 9 years

Since children grow at different rates and the arm length in relation to the other body size is not always in the usual proportions, the child should try the violin just. If the posture is straight, relaxed and not strained, the instrument will fit.

Used violins are not inferior to new instruments

As extremely high-quality and well-sounding violins, which were manufactured in the past centuries. Age is not an acceptable quality feature, because like any other musical instrument, the violin depends on how it was traded. Storage, humidity, temperature fluctuations and, of course, use make great differences in sound quality and handling. In addition, of course, bad instruments were produced in the past centuries. Nevertheless, you can buy a used violin very well. One should pay attention to this:
– For a well-built violin, the angle between the body and neck is right.
– The length of the strings is important for a good sound, and the distance of the strings from the fingerboard is also crucial.
– Good instruments have no sharp edges, especially where the neck is glued to the body. Sharp edges are a sign of inferior production, even on industrially manufactured instruments.
– The swirls to adjust the strings should be easy to turn, but should not be adjusted when playing.
The material also has an influence on the sound: Violins can be made of solid wood or of locked wood.
– It is worth to pay attention to the paint: It should evenly, without cracks and without injuries protect the instrument from moisture.

The sound

How exactly the violin sounds is ultimately a matter of taste. But for a beginner instrument, good sound is important because otherwise the fun of the game is quickly lost. The violin should have a very strong sound and balanced sounds at the beginning. Sometimes the e-string sounds shrill: That’s not good. The notes of the lower strings should be clearly distinguishable and should not overlap in an indefinable hum. And of course the instrument should react quite easily to the bow stroke.
