How much do I have to spend to get a decent instrument?
At FiddlerShop.com, you don't have to spend much to get yourself a well-built and great sounding instrument. The Fiddlerman OB1 violin outfit (photo to the left) is only $290 and comes with everything you need to get started right out of the box. For just $390, you can get the Fiddlerman Apprentice violin, and for another $100, you can buy the popular Fiddlerman Concert violin. These are all great instruments for the money. Violinist Pierre Holstein, aka Fiddlerman, chooses and tests each violin himself to ensure quality. On top of that, all of our instruments undergo the famous 10-point inspection.
