Fiddlerman Apprentice Violin Reviews

How does the Fiddlerman OB1 compare with the Fiddlerman Apprentice?

How does the Fiddlerman Apprentice compare with the Fiddlerman Concert?

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.

Beautiful Instrument

I was skeptical about ordering a violin online but I tried a lot of violins in stores and they just didn’t feel right and the ones in my price range didn’t feel sturdy or they had a tinny sound. When I opened up the case I was amazed at the craftsmanship and when I tuned it up and started playing I was instantly in love with the sound. Thank you for offering such a great violin at a reasonable price. I am a customer of Fiddlerman for life!

Great violin. I loved it .

I received my violin few weeks ago. It came with everything all accessories. I am new learner and decided to buy a violin from fiddlerman shop after I read all the good reviews about this shop . I made the right decision . The only thing I noticed is that my bow had a little scratch in the middle but I just thought it was not a big deal since everything else was in great condition . I will buy from here again :) Thank you .

This violin plays itself

This is my first review I've ever written, but I felt compelled to do so! I bought a 200 dollar stentor outfit from Amazon that was recommended to me as a beginner, when I got it I felt something was missing, being my first violin I didn't know what it was... I looked and read every single thing I could about entry level violins and my research let me to the apprentice. The immediate difference I noticed right away was the weight, it's much lighter. The varnish isn't a laquer, it had a Matt finish. I then rubbed it and the action is way lower and much easier to play. The sound is far Superior especially on the g string. The stentor was really scratchy even with dominant strings. The apprentice holds a solid note all the way through the stroke of the bow with almost no pressure. It's a whole different experience. If you get what you pay for, and if 350$ gets you this, then I can only imagine what the artist sounds like. My only issue is weather I should have spent the extra 50$ on the concert violin..... The violin is set up beautifully, maybe this has something to do with the experience, but I love it, the color, texture, should, playability and the feel. The outfit is great, bow is awesome, great purchase!! It's a no brainier
