I don't know anything about violins. No, actually, I don't know anything about music, so this is rather basic:
Despite it looking terribly hard, I decided to learn to play the violin nonetheless. I went to a shop and someone told me
it seems you could use a 4/4 one, which currently we're lacking. However, we do have smaller ones that have the same sound and can play the same notes, they're just smaller
Whatever, I left the place in search for a 4/4 somewhere else. But what I was told got me thinking:
Are there different types of violins (perhaps, in size) that can only play certain pieces while others can different ones?
The reason I ask is because something similar happened to me with a digital piano. The case with the piano was rather obvious: it lacked some keys, so clearly there were pieces I couldn't play with it. Now then, this doesn't seem as obvious with violins.
Bonus: that man told me that they had smaller ones that had the same sounds etc. Is that really right? I find it hard to believe that a smaller violin can play the same things as a bigger one.
