Hello everyone, pleased to make your aqcuaintance.
Hopefully you don't mind me writing in English, since it feels more natural to me than Finnish does. I do understand Finnish but you can answer in either language.
 
Now, let's me get the show on the road then.
For a while now I've had a thought of getting a violin. Of course, when I inspected some of them on the Internet, I was shocked by their prices. There were many cheap ones too but by reading conversations I found out that they may be far from perfect. Frankly, I can't afford to buy a violin that costs 200$ or more. Everything's so damn pricy nowadays..
 
So, back to the topic.
I did find some that I could afford on my budget but I'd need some help on deciding which one I should pick and which one I should leave on shelf.
 
These are the ones that I could afford. I know, I know. I should spend at least that 200$ to get a decent violin. But as a student.. oh well, you get the point; I gotta live. Anyway, I'd like a violin that could last for years and serve me faithfully, without disappointments, but one that is cheap at the same time.

Please, feel free to recommend me some others, too.
 
Yours,

-Don't buy cheap electric. Their sound is awful.
 
-Problem with cheap acoustic violins is that even though it may be decent, the setup is almost always bad. You usually have to take it to a luthier who will do adjustments to get the thing even close to playable. And that takes money too.
 
My advise is that you look for a used cheap violin which really has been played with a decent amount of time. ( maybe save a bit more money too ). There's a good chance that the setup is already ok if someone has used it.
