Fiddlerman Concert Violin Review
How does the Apprentice compare with the Concert?
How does the Concert compare with the Artist?
The Fiddlerman Concert violin astounds with its big, open and clear sound. Players will immediately enjoy the deeper tones compared to the Apprentice Violin.
Each instrument starts from carefully selected aged tonewood, real ebony fittings, and the hand applied varnish brings out the natural beauty of the wood. The violin is well balanced across all the strings and Fiddlerman synthetic core strings deliver a wide tonal palette to draw from.

I told my husband, "If I had a violin, I think I could play it!" He said, "Go for it!" I ordered the Concert Violin Outfit after chatting with your staff; and when it came OMG it was packaged so beautiful and it is so beautiful! I almost cried! Thank you so much, and after one month of lessons my teacher said that was a years worth of learning....I am determined, and having too much fun! Thank you so much, Judy with Ozzie the Wonder Dog! PS...Ozzie comes in and listens while I practice
I am a 72 year old man who hasn't played the violin in over 30 years. After much research, I chose the Fiddlerman Concert Violin Outfit. It was everything and more than I expected. The sound and tone are amazing. It came shipped to me in perfect condition. I am playing the violin again better than ever before. Thank you Fiddlershop. In my opinion you are the best.
I ordered this violin not knowing what to expect. I've never played the instrument and decided to take up a new hobby during quarantine. I was amazed at all the purchase included. It really is a beginner kit. All the elements included are well made and easy to handle. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to start playing the instrument. It's a great value.
Been looking at the Fiddlerman Violins for some time now, finally decided on the Concert Outfit....I'm impressed. Ordered on a Friday and it was in my hands (in Central Florida) the next day. The quality is excellent, I love it! Brought it with me to my next Violin Class (beginner) and my teacher loved it as well....I had her play it and she was astounded by the craftmanship and sound quality..She was looking thru the f hole to see the maker..lol. She also said it was one of the loudest and brightest sounding Violins she's played. I had made a few calls to the shop and asked some questions on the chat and everyone was very professional and answered all my questions. You'll have me as a repeat customer for sure!
It looks and sounds beautiful! We love it! The case is also very very nice as well! My daughter and her violin teacher are very happy with it! Customer service staff are AMAZING as well! They worked to find a solution so that the box wouldn't come marked with fiddlershop on it (since it was a present for my daughter). Super impressed all around! Will definitely make all future purchases through them! Thank you!
