~~~Violin~~~ Singapore Violins are $+++ ???

I find that of the whole world, Singapore Violins are one of the overpriced ones.
You can get a good decent violin for 5,000 SgD in overseas if you know how to choose which... and that 5k one is sold for about few thousands more expensive in singapore... >.<

or is it that Violins round the globe are known to be over-priced in history???

But i think for Strings, its cheaper...

I think shipping and handling makes it more expensive. Some more, the shape is irregular and material fragile for typical shipping.

Music essentials? I bought my violin from there and it costs about...800 bucks.

for beginners....maybe around 45-60/hr. It's quite easy to find a s'pore violin teacher...haha.just google.

the violins at music essentials would cost at least 350? I forgot the exact price. It's a bit pricey for a beginner but it's worth your money. XD

Oh...music essentials is at le meridian, orchard. You might want to change the E string to get a better sound.

Not to mention that ability to find the right luthier to repair violin properly is even tougher!!!

totally agree with overpriced violins. but trust me, some parts of the world are even more overpriced. I think its mainly due to our rental.
