My teacher has informed me that I have outgrown my violin, a Ton-Klar Dancla that I got for my 12th birthday or something. I played for 7 years then quit for 7 or so because I was preoccupied with school. Now I`m back at it and apparently a $200 violin isn`t really cutting it.

I like to think I have some skill and that this is something I`ll continue with. I`m really enjoying it and have been fairly dedicated at practicing. My teacher is pretty amazed at how much I am remembering.

The point of all this is, I`m looking for a new violin, probably in the $750-$1500 price range. I notice people seem pretty excited about Gliga, and not just on this board. So, I am really interested in either a Gama or a Maestro. I`m mostly interested in what people have to say about the difference between Gama and Maestro, and whether it might be worth it to me to go for the Maestro. I don`t want to get a violin I couldn`t properly appreciate at my skill level. Also, what is a Gama `Super` and what makes it super?

Thanks for any advice!

get a Gama. The difference in tone between a gama and a maestro is not huge and we have even seen gamas that outplay Maestros.
