      Included Accessories:

      This outfit was really meant for higher level instruments, but we made it happen! You'll find a nice Oblong case, followed by our Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow, shoulder rest, and rosin. Products that alone retail for over $200. We strive to offer this kind of quality outfit with every Fiddlerman violin we sell.

      The Fiddlershop Family

      Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and blowing away its competitors?

      Fiddlerman himself tests and curates the violins and works directly with the maker to produce only the best. With over 40 years as a professional violinist of orchestras around the world, he knows what he's doing. We buy our violins directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you! Each Fiddlerman violin is set up in our workshop.

      Excellent Violin

      I purchased this violin to replace my Cecilio because I was tired of the scratching I kept hearing and moving up in skills I just wanted a better sounding violin. Well, I got it. Shipping was fast, I got it within a week of ordering and it was everything I expected plus some. The case is amazing and has plenty of storage. The violin itself just needed a little tuning out of the case but it was already set up and ready to play. The bow is of nice quality. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting a quality violin at a decent price. I've been playing for about 4 years and this is my 3rd violin. I am thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship and quality. You can't beat the sound for a beginner violin.

      Beginner Violin

      Very good experience. Easy to use site, straight forward ordering and free shipping for my order! Everything arrived quickly in perfect condition amd the one question I had was answered quickly thru their online chat program. The one issue I had was: it appears there ia no way to call and speak to a person directly. This can be frustrating as it can often be preferable to speak to a person instead of email or chat.

      Love it!

      This violin has exceeded my expectations. It’s my first violin and i’m so happy i chose this one. The satin look is beautiful and the quality of sound is unbelievable. I am a beginner and even my teacher has commented on what a nice student violin it is. Comes with everything you need to start playing including a very nice shoulder rest and carbon fiber bow. I highly recommend this package.

      It’s beautiful

      This is my first violin and I’m so happy I purchased it from the fiddlershop. It came in the mail very quickly and in perfect playing condition. When I am ready to upgrade to an intermediate violin I will definitely purchase it from here!
