The Fiddlerman OB1 Violin Review

How does the Fiddlerman OB1 compare with the Fiddlerman Apprentice?

The OB1 is one of our top recommendations for beginners on a budget. It is well crafted from aged tonewoods, finished with a beautiful dark brown varnish, set up here in our shop to perfection, and produces deep and brilliant tones.

The OB1 is possible because of the combination of great connections and strong buying power! The fact that we can offer a quality violin that will last for years with an advancing level outfit is truly AMAZING. It's not uncommon to find this level violin for $300-$600 at other violin shops, (and that is without a quality outfit). Each violin is tested and will arrive ready to play out of the box. 
  • Every Fiddlerman instrument undergoes our famous 10-point inspection!
  • Lifetime Structural Warranty and Free Lifetime Adjustments (Contact Fiddlershop)
  • Solid-carved spruce and maple tone woods
  • 100% ebony fingerboard, pegs & fittings
  • Carbon Tailpiece with 4x Fine Tuners
  • Hand-carved french Aubert or Teller bridge
  • Spirit-based durable dark brown finish (no thick lacquer)
  • Wood dried a minimum of 4 years
  • Installed D’Addario Prelude Strings (teacher preferred)
  • Great for Suzuki and NAfME students
  • Precisely measured string height for easy and comfortable playability
  • The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box
  • Available in sizes: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 4/4
  • Strong, responsive, high-grade Carbon Fiber (far superior to Brazilwood)

  • Genuine mother-of-pearl inlays
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.

Great beginer outfit

The violin was still in tune when it arrived, the packaging was excellent. The violin holds tune and the pegs don't slip or stick. The bow, case rosin, mute and shoulder rest are really good. The only issue is the finish on the violin could be better done and a small portion at the top where the scroll meets the neck on the topside seems messy and the neck and top sound board area looks messy. The tone is great and mellow and not crazy bright, it is easy to play and very responsive.

Lost and Found Fiddle

After weeks of comparison shopping, locally and online, I decided on the Obi-Wan. The order process was made easy by PayPal and correspondence from Fiddler Shop was immediate. I watched the progress of the shipment as it moved cross country. All was well until we received an email stating the fiddle had arrived. It was nowhere to be found. We contacted the red, white and blue delivery company to see where it was dropped. No response. We contacted the Fiddle Shop and they confirmed delivery to our porch. We asked neighbors and patrolled the area. 24 hrs later a young lady knocked and asked if this package was mine. I rewarded here $ for her trouble and she tried to refuse. I insisted as Obi-Wan was very precious and I felt the need to show my appreciation. In the end I am very pleased with Fiddler Shop and the way they conduct their business. I do wish now they had a shipping option for the brown and gold delivery company as they are more consistent with the correct address. Thank you Fiddler Shop! I love my OB1 fiddle and all your videos
