Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and blowing away its competitors?
Fiddlerman himself tests and curates all our instruments, 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 instruments directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you! Each Fiddlerman cello is set up by our talented luthiers in our workshop.
Musically, this instrument is great. Comes with decent mid level strings, a fantastic bridge that is shaped very well, an excellently shaped fingerboard and nut. The setup is pretty nice. However, the varnish and craftsmanship leaves a bit to be desired from a varnish standpoint. On the scroll there is drippings of dried and cured varnish from hasty and overly applied varnish. The pegbox has a similar appearance on one side. On the top plate, there are a few teeny tiny dings scatterd about. I think maybe I just got a "seasoned" one. I'm still a repeat customer and have purchased from them some things before and always had great products and service.
The cello arrived in perfect condition. The action is just right which enables easy playing. The finish is beautiful. The tone is very nice. I have no complaints whatsoever. I would recommend this cello outfit to any beginner or intermediate cello player.
Absolutely perfect! The package was so very carefully wrapped, nothing could have damaged it! My cello is beautiful and souds wonderful. The bow is also premium quality. All and all, very happy customer. Thanks
Amazing! Kind, helpful, professional. We are new to the cello. We found the web sight very helpful. My 15 year daughter spent her hard earned money on the instrument of her dreams. She had her first lesson and is very happy with the cello.
I was extremely hesitant to purchase an instrument online but decided it was worth a try because of the free return policy! I researched numerous cellos for months before deciding on this one. My son had only been playing a year so this was a scary and expensive investment but seeing him completely light up when he started to play it made it all worth it! The sound is beautiful, the instrument itself is gorgeous and the bow and case complete the package! There are few sounds as wonderful as a cello and this one doesn't even sound bad when he messes up! I was completely satisfied with the information provided and the service available.
