I found these two on craigslist for $60! The lady I emailed said that her mother in law bought the cello off of ebay for like $150, I just asked about the violin and im waiting for a response.

Can cellos and violins be super shitty quality around these prices? The lady acknowledges it's for a beginner and theyre not of high quality, I just dont know to what extent

any help?!

That sounds amazing to me. I'd go for it.

Edit: These should give you a good idea of how good of a deal that is. They're both set to go from low to high, so the ones on the top are the cheapest ones on the site.

When it comes to classical bowed instruments, don't even waste your time with the cheap stuff. Any DECENT violin/cello or combo of the two will run you up to atleast a grand, if not a lot more. It'll probably fall apart in your hands in a matter of weeks.

That's what I'm saying; you've stumbled upon a great deal.

Trust me, they can look beautiful because they're such simple instruments. The quality suffers at that price. If you want something to fool around with, go for it. If you're looking to take it seriously, you might as will be ordering firewood and with strings on it.

For decorative purposes, these will look great.

For someone who wants to fool round with a new instrument for a while, these will be good.

Anything more will be pretty much out of the question, but its still a top deal. I would jump at the chance, personally.
#10
Sounds like a great deal assuming they aren't broken.


I'm sure they're very base models, but since you're just looking to get started I'd buy them.

i used to play violin,

and like any instrument, yes their are varying qualities, and unlike guitars where the top of the line is usually around 2grand, violins can easily get up to about 15grand for a top of the line.

looks decent, youll want to make sure hte neck is okay, and youll want a collar bone/shoulder rest, it also has fine tune adjustments which is a plus as they sell for 15$/each and there are 4 of them mounted as can be seen.

How common are the designs and shapes of violin instruments?

I asked the same question at Harmony central and someone posted this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGeD8_YCcCA&feature=player_embedded
It looks exactly like the one in the video, and im pretty sure it's the same stop piece and he said it was $400 and a china model

The woman I emailed said her husbands mom bought it for him after his got damaged, so she only guessed that it was a $150 cello
What do you think the chances are I might be hitting a homer for spending $50?

well like i said the fine tuners are worth more new than her asking price,

and really, for 50$, just go try it out and see how it looks and how the neck is, thats really not a lot of cash.
