PostSubject: [VIOLIN] B> First Violin   Fri Feb 25, 2011 5:54 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for my first violin. I resorted to either just ask here if there's anyone selling and looking at shops in malls because I'm too afraid to go to Raon (haha!) and no one can accompany me so...

My budget is around 3k. I can go (maybe) until 3.5k.

If there are any other places to buy you can suggest (that are fairly safe to go to), please tell me! I'd love to have a lot of options before I buy.

Thanks so much!

Raon is not too dangerous kung wala kang dalang malaking pera and you act like you know the establishment. LOL!

Nagpapasama si prometheus sa akin sa Quiapo to look around for violins. Puwede kang sumama. PM me na lang ;)

@albino Bukas sila Saturdays, pag Sunday ilan-ilan lang ang bukas.

@banned by admin Oo nga ano. Kung sino pa man ang gusto magpunta ng Raon puwedeng magpalista na. :D Mukhang sometime first week ng March ang target namin, so may time pa kayo na mag-usog ng mga sked ninyo. Kung weekdays, I am okay 5 pm onwards. Kung weekend ninyo gusto Sabado lang puwede kasi sarado ang karamihan ng shops doon pag Linggo.

Nagpunta ako sa mga MOA stores kanina at nakakita ako ng 3,150 (sale hanggang March 7 only) na Bachendorff; 3, 200 na Giuseppe at 6,750 ( ) (beginner violin na German made daw). Worth it ba na bumili ako ng 3k+ na violin na china made?


Sama ako sa raon! Nakaka-confident na na pumunta doon at may kasamang marunong sa violins. Haha!

yes mostly naman po nga mga beginner violin made from china pero may mga nagsasabi "Parts nila galing sa mismo country ng brand nila" ewan ko lang kung totoo, pero so far happy naman ko sa alfred stingl by Hofner ko na made from china, and mostly mo nga mga professional violin ng mga ibang PVees made by Chinese Luthier (Violin makers)

@Halimaw_Sa_Banga
haha pwede ka na po pala magtayo ng travel agency for violinist..

Congratulations on your violin and best wishes sa pag aaral mo!

Ginamitan mo na ng shoulder rest?

Naset-up ko na rin *** bagong violin ko, and napaka decent na nito for the price... kaso ginugulpi pa rin ito ng Hofner ^^;

@ clowreed11: hinde ka kasi sumama eh.

Subukan mo gumamit muna ng bimpo na tiniklop para lang mabago yung elevation kung wala ka pang shoulder rest. :)

@ banned-by-admin: Hinde lang sumama, nag perform pa... YES! mayroong first class demo kanina sa Lyrics he he he.

@ clowreed11: Kamusta defense ninyo? ano? may nag iyakan ba o smooth naman :D

@ Halimaw_Sa_Banga: Ay hinde siya nakabili ng shoulder rest kanina?

@ Merry Crystal: paano nanakit ang leeg mo? *** pag gamit kasi ng shoulder rest ay para hinde gaano mag bend ang neck mo or umangat ang balikat, either way mauuwi ito sa pangangalay ng leeg. try mo mag shoulder rest or *** payo ni Halimaw_Sa_Banga gamit ka ng bimpo o paddings para ma elevate ang violin.

@ merrycrystal
- Tal's right. You should buy a shoulder rest. I remember my first violin and had been playing for months without a shoulder rest, it felt really uncomfortable plus, I couldn't play it right (parang may hinahanap na tamang position yung violin sa shoulder ko.) I tried using a towel but it always falls when I move a lot while playing. I bought a shoulder rest then, and then, it felt easier to play the violin, minus the tension, plus the ease of playing. Aja,

muhkang kailangan ko na nga dahil kahit anong kapal ng towel ko, weird parin ng feeling ng violin. kahit ako lang magisa nagtuturo sa sarili ko haha.

baka mag enroll narin ako sa formal lessons dahil una, kung ano anong lesson ang tinitignan ko, at sabi ng mga tao ay mahirap tanggalin ang bad habits. feeling ko may bad habits na akong nasisimulan

haha.... actually gusto ko magpaturo talaga.... si T@l pwede daw sya sundays.... kaso ndi magtugma sched namin eh.... haha....


about sa mute, i haven't tried pa yung metal mute, pero based dun sa mga napanood ko na vids, sobrang hina talaga ng sound compared sa ultra practice rubber mute..... super effective yang metal mute based on reviews..... downside is mabigat daw???? hehe.....


nga pala, sana bummili ka na rin ng shoulder rest......

ay oh? shucks haha di rin ako pwede ng sundays (cramming time )

di ko masabi kung mabigat talaga kasi parang di parin ako sanay sa bigat ng violin haha! di ko rin masabi yung sa sound since di rin ako nakatry ng rubber mute pero malaki ang nababawas.

malapit na ako makaipon from tira-tirang baon para makabili ng shoulder rest. i hope makabili na ako soon dahil sumasakit na ang collar bone ko haha!

masasanay ka rin sa bigat ng violin mo... haha.... ganyan din ako nung una, mas lalo na nung gumamit ako ng shoulder rest..... medyo bibigat sya, pero mas magiging comfortable ka na... actually 4 months na ang nakalipas simula ng mag-start ako... i-less mu pa *** mga vacant... haha.... to sum up, a month or two cguro... haha....


tama, ipon-ipon na muna, well, *** magandang shoulder rest na ang pag-ipunan mu, mga nasa worth 1k based sa nabasa ko.....

@merrycrystal
- Tama si clowreed, mas maganda kung yung magandang shoulder rest kasi bukod sa hindi sya masyadong magalaw e mas comfortable pa. Gamit ko yung FOM na wood shoulder rest, mga 1k something un. Di ko na maalala since 4 years ko nag gamit yung FOM. Binili ko sa LYRIC at sobrang comfortable sya compared sa mga past shoulder rests na nagamit ko. Pero since you are a beginner, you can try buying cheap ones pra makapagsimula ka na. Aja! =)

@merrycrystal
- Yup. I think he's right. Ilang beses na kasing na damage yung mga violin ko dati dahil sa dati kong mga shoulder rests. Malambot kasi yung plastic and syempre, my screws sa ilalim na gumasgas sa back ng violin ko. Aun, nakakadamage nga sya. Kaya if you have the budget, invest on something that's worth your money and saving time. =)

@ merrycrystal: wag ka matakot magasgasan ang violin, dahil hinde ito maiiwasan, natural ang wear & tear ng instruments lalo na pag palagi ginagamit :D

Just remember, habang ginagamit ang violin, paganda ng paganda ang tunog nito, Alam mo ba *** mga "antique finished" na violin? bago pa lang pero panay gasgas at uka uka, pero ito *** binibili ng karamihan.

Kaya laspagin mo lang ang violin mo, kung nagmukhang luma iyan within a year, aba talagang nasulit mo siya, at nandiyan naman ang mga luthier para pagandahin ang appearance ulit. :D

@clowreed: i guess after a while kailangan rin palitan ang shoulder rest kahit hindi pa sira noh? naghahanap na siguro ng bagong position ang leeg or something :P


@tal: ngayon lang ako nakarinig ng antique finish. shucks kailangan ko pa mag research. :P

sana nga at masatisfy ako sa tunog niya after a while (at magmuhkang ewan narin haha!) at para malaman kong sulit nga ang violin ko haha!
