allie kiwi Children's violins - any suggestions? (8) Tech: Children's violins - any suggestions? 27 Apr 04

My four year old son is interested in learning the violin. As well as my full sized violin I have a 3/4 size violin from when I was learning, but obviously this is far too big.

I've seen various violins on sale, but really don't know what sort of quality they are. I vaguely remember my teacher looked down upon various mass produced ones - I think one of those was skylark (?) - but really I have no idea. I've also seen 'hoffman' advertised.

Has anyone any suggestions? Are skylark any good, or are Hoffman better/worse? Other brands I should look at or avoid?
