Quality Viola

Thinking of buying a viola on ebay or amazon?

I've read many reviews recommending to NOT buy any instrument on those websites because of their horrible quality, but my parents are not willing to buy me a quality viola due to how expensive they are. I just want to know from your experience if the violas from ebay (especially the brands Mendini and Crystalcello) can last a year or at least 10 months. That's all I need it for. They also sell violas in different colors, would that affect how long it will last, or affect the sound in any way.

not those brands.

please tell your parents that this is not a good way to save money.

i've had students who show up with the $79 ebay instruments. all but one had to take it to a shop and spend more than that again to get it playable.
some examples of the problems.
- pegs are not fitted to instrument. impossible to tune or keep in tune.
- nut is too high, hurts to hold down the string with the first finger.
- bridge is curved wrong, impossible to play on middle string without hitting the string next to it
- bridge feet are not shaped to top
- strings are terrible, already "false" when new.
- fingerboard is at wrong angle, neck has to be adjusted and reconnected differently
- fine tuners dont work
- sound post is wrong length, falls out and cannot be fit back in properly

here are some cheaper brands that tend to actually function when you get them
about $300 once you add the case and bow: http://www.swstrings.com/product/instruments/viola/111
a little more: http://www.kennedyviolins.com/violas/ricard-bunnel-etude-viola-outfit/

those shops also have decent return policies if there is a problem with the instrument.

if you only need it for a short time.. why not rent a better one?
a $1000 eastman usually rents for under $40 a month!
