Inexpensive starter violin/fiddle?

flapjack 1,386 129 September 5, 2016 at 11:32 AM
I'm looking for an inexpensive, yet not "cheap" fiddle to learn on. I've been playing guitar for 30 years, but have always wanted to learn the fiddle. Of course, searching eBay finds them for $30 shipped, but of course, if it's so cheap it won't stay in tune and whatnot, I won't waste my time.

I fully expect to hear the "just get a nice one argument or you'll never want to learn" argument, but at the same time, consider I learned on seriously the most shitty guitar ever made, and kept with it. To this day, I still bang around on the $30 kid acoustic mine have all grown out of, just to see if I can make it sound good, lol.

Any advice on a starter fiddle would be great, along with any other tips the SD community would like to share.
