Student Instruments Contact Tel: 07977 263617
The student instruments are categorised by Price Range, rather than by playing level, as I think a student's chance of progression is directly proportional to the quality of their instrument.
While I would always advise buying the best instrument and bow possible, you need to ensure the instrument comes with a full set up and not just direct from the factory. A full set up will ensure the instrument is comfortable to play and gives as good a sound as possible. Expensive instruments without a correct set up are quite often 'outplayed' by cheaper ones with a correct set up.
All instruments leave my workshop with a professional set up as standard.
