After reading the reviews, I had decided to buy the violin. It came at around a few days, maybe 5 or so. I was very excited to get my hands on it. Came in a nice cardboard case, safely packaged with some tape. Inside lie the violin case, with a rubber thing outside the handle, with 2 straps.I eagerly opened everything up, I was surprised to find the violin was in perfect condition. Some people have said there were extra strings, but mine didn't come with any, I didn't look much to it as I decided it didn't need new ones.I loved the boxwood fittings on the violin, looks very great. The finish is very glossy though, I dislike it, but for 100 dollars, it was okay. I was glad it came with two bows, both made of Brazilianwood and a mother of pearl lining. The hairs are okay, I have gotten a few that come loose but no biggie.The sound is good, not the best. I've played this for about 13 weeks now, when winter finally hit. Things then went downhill..The pegs became loose, especially on the G and E, I needed to push them in a bit but they'd still become loose from a bit of pushing. Now I suspect it's possibly from the cold weather. I got them all tuned up except for the E, which keeps slipping out of place. The rubber casing on the case handle came off, possibly from me sliding it up and down a lot. I'd rather have it like a hard handle, like most durable triangle shaped violin cases. It was extremely light, easy to carry around as well. Love the color on the inside, isn't very harsh and dark, like a very light crem� color. I love the rosin, however the case broke apart. The sides broke off as if it were held in place by sliding it in, and then the rubber like material on the outside that lifted the top ripped, and thus it became useless. I threw it away. Overall not bad of a violin, you get what you pay for after all. Now seeing all the other cheap) violins on the website, maybe I shouldn't have been so anxious and been wiser in my selection. Oh well, maybe next time I'll get enough money to buy a new one, huehue.
My daughter needed a violin asap for school, and I searched endlessly for one that could get here in time and one that was affordable as well. I received the violin in less than a week and didn't have to break the bank to get it. All in all, my experience was great and my daughter loved her new instrument.
It was such a pleasure to shop here. Everyone is super nice, professional and knowledgeable. They have the new showroom now too which looks spectacular!
We are very pleased with our instrument purchases and are looking forward to a long relationship with you. I was very pleased with my whole experience with everyone at the Fiddlershop. Thank you so much for your generous support for our non-profit program!
To start with, it was delivered in 2 days. The finish is well done, the string spacing & height is comfortable & easy to play. Both bows are even & easy to tighten, draw well. I fits well to the shoulder & the sound projects well & clear. Thank you.
