Whether you are buying a new violin or fiddle, you should examine carefully the features of the instrument. Whether you choose a new or used instrument, you should examine the sound and tune of the instrument. A number of other factors, such as strings, tuning pegs, and the quality of the wood and components are also important factors when buying a used or new instrument.
Many local violin shops or private fiddle dealers may be able to provide information about used instruments that they will not be able to show their clients. It is a good idea to seek out this information. You should also check with the Better Business Bureau to find if there are any complaints against the violins or fiddles that you are considering buying.
Although you can often find violins for sale at rent-a-bows, these instruments are often very expensive. Most people will not be able to afford a new instrument. If you are buying a used one, you should look for a reconditioned instrument that has been cleaned and repaired. An instrument that is not kept in good condition will present a danger to your health and may need to be repaired and adjustments made for proper playability.
Many violin shops will rent instruments at a very affordable rate. If you are looking for a good instrument, try to rent one or two at a time. Always ask the owner to take a quick look at the instrument. Look at it carefully. You may find that it does not play well. If you are not comfortable with the instrument, you should probably consider a different instrument.
If you do not plan to play the instrument but plan to give it as a gift to the person, you should be willing to allow the shop to select a better instrument for the gift. The cost may be somewhat more than a new instrument. However, the savings will be well worth the cost. It is not necessary to buy an instrument that is difficult to play. Try several instruments. You may find that some models are good for you and not others.

———–Choosing Guitar Tunings——————————————————————————————————-
If you know the notes on the guitar, you can tune the guitar by ear. Find the lowest note on the fretboard and then its related string. Use the tuning peg to adjust the string until the sound matches up with the note. The lowest note can always be found at the bottom of the guitar.
You now have a way to tune the guitar. Check out these tunings:
- A – AAd9—–0-3-1-0-0——-
- A – DFu-Q—–0-3-1-0-0——-
- E – EEx-5—–0-2-1-1-0——-
- E – DGetr-6—–0-2-1-1-0——-
- A – IV-3—–0-2-1-0——-
- E – Gbum-5—–0-2-1-1-0——-
The placement of the tuning peg for the 6th string ( bottom ), between the 6th and 5th frets, relative to the low E string, of the guitar is the same. In this case, do not tune-up, but rather tune down.
Tuning the 5th string, 1st fret to the open 5th string, which is a C.
Tuning the 4th string, 4th fret to the open 4th string, which is an F.
Tuning the 3rd string, 3rd fret to the open 3rd string, which is a G.
