DO NOT purchase an instrument on the internet. If you do, you are setting your child up for failure. These instruments are made with low quality materials that make it impossible to produce a good sound, cannot be repaired and are generally unplayable. If you are not sure about the quality of an instrument you are considering….ASK a professional. We cannot stress enough that there is no such thing as a good cheap instrument. The internet can make an instrument look great, but the quality is poor and not fixable or playable.
