Well, some are not cheap. The cheapest is around 100 dollars. That's usually just a child's first violin. It's quality isn't ever really that great and you can probably find someone selling it in the classifieds or a garage sale. One that costs 700 dollars has a tonal quality that is much greater than a cheaper violin. Of course, professionals tend to buy instruments that are up to $15,000.00 and sometimes more.

Another answer

Violins can range greatly in price. For a starter instrument you can often find them for as low as $100 (£60). Another option for beginners is to hire an instrument which negates the initial layout for something you are not sure if you will keep up.

More advanced students will then need a more expensive violin and these can be found for about $300-500 (£200-300). This will normally last a couple of years. With my own students moving up beyond this point I recommend the minimum spent is $1600 (£1000).

It is now often the case that to enter a conservatoire program to study as a violinist, you are expected to have an instrument in the $24,000-$32,000 (£15000 - 20000) range.

The most expensive violin on record?

The Lady Tennant Stradivarius violin was sold by Christie's New York in April 2005 for $2.03 million US dollars. The Stradivari Society, a private Chicago-based organization that purchases rare violins and loans them to promising young musicians, values some "golden era" (post-1700) Stradivari violins at $6 million each.

No. Violin strings are much thinner and shorter. They have to be because the violin is smaller. Because of this they make completely different sounds. Also, there are six strings on a guitar and only four on a violin.
