Re: Violins & School Rental programs?
To put it into context I bought a violin a few years ago. It's a good student model, full-size with a case, rosin and a basic bow. I bought new strings for the violin and the total cost was £240. For $200, I wouldn't bother. I would simply go and look for a used violin. My violin is better than most rentals would be and I can resell it for most of the value. If you buy something used, then chances are that you wouldn't lose much on a resale if she loses interest or outgrows it.
