Whether renting or purchasing, no matter what your budget or playing ability is, and even before considering tone and looks, it's important to get an instrument that is playable - one that can be tuned and isn't a literal pain to try and play. In this episode of the Violin Geek Podcast, Laurel Thomsen gives tips to help improve the likelyhood you'll come home with a healthy violin or viola and not one of those VSOs (violin shaped objects). Enjoy!

Please email Laurel at laurel@laurelthomsen.com if you have a violin, viola, fiddle, music biz, or practice related question you’d like answered in the blog or on a podcast, have a story or insight to share, or if you’d like to inquire about violin, viola, or fiddle lessons with Laurel, in-person or via Skype, FaceTime, or Zoom.
