What is the difference between the beginner and intermediate violin?

Simply put, the sound is nicer on the intermediate violin. Since the wood has been aged for around three years, the sound is more beautiful. Now, you're probably asking,
"Well, I'm only a beginner. Do I really need to spend the extra money?"
No, our opinion is that there is no reason to spend the extra money if you're just learning.
The Model 12 and the Model 16 violins can be compared to a Toyota and a Lexus. If you're learning how to drive, it really doesn't make a difference if you start with a Toyota.

Compare the sound of the two models:
