Musical Choices

I intend to buy 2 musical instruments over the next few weeks.

  1. A practice chanter for bagpipes. I don't know if I'd like to play bagpipes, but I enjoyed playing recorder in middle school.
  2. A violin or string bass. I played both of these (at different times) in school, and I'd like to play them again. I prefer (and am considerably more skilled at) bass, but it's a less practical purchase (moving it to wherever I go next will be a pain) - I might put off buying one to some later stage of my life.
If anyone knows of sweet (ideally local) deals on either of these, possibly used if in good condition, let me know. I'll be checking out music stores in the meantime. It looks like a new fullsize Bass would run me about $1k, a violin about $500, and a practice chanter about $100.

(in a more ideal world, I'd also be looking at pianos, but buying one would be completely irresponsible right now and I've been using my accordion so far mostly as a tiny bizarre piano anyhow)
