The Fiddlershop Family
Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and revolutionizing the string instrument industry? We believe that music and instruments should be accessible to everyone at a price they can afford. Our founder Pierre Holstein (a.k.a. "Fiddlerman") works directly with makers in many different countries to produce only the best for our customers. With over 40 years as a professional violinist in orchestras around the world, he brings unmatched expertise in music and business to everything we do.
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! Every Fiddlerman violin is set up and tested in our workshop to make sure it passes our rigorous 10-point inspection. Our incredibly talented team is here to help answer any questions you have, and make sure your instrument arrives safely.
It was really easy, so informative as well. Really enjoying my violin. Looks beautiful and shipping was so fast .
I decided after being semi retired to learn to play the violin and I am very thankful that everything I needed for this new experience was in this package, because I really had no idea where to start so thank you very much, I love my apprentice violin and everything was all set up and ready to go which made it easy to start my lessons thank you very much.
Following is an excerpt of my last email to you: “The details and presentation of your violin are exquisite. The sound is beautiful, and the carbon bow adds so much beauty to its tone....! The case‘s comfortable compartments, bow tag, beautiful shoulder rest with box, letter of adjustment inspection, precious rosin, case keys, case tag, mute piece, and violin cover all make one realize the amount of care and love that goes into your violins for the satisfaction of your customers. I already thanked the teacher who recommended you.”
Our daughter started playing violin this year, and we were lost on what to purchase and from whom. After several google searches we called the Fiddler Shop...we were blown away. They answered all of our questions, and we felt confident that the Apprentice Violin was the answer. Then the product arrived. It was amazing. The packaging ensured our daughters violin arrived in perfect condition, and her instructor was extremely impressed with the quality and care that the shop had taken in setting her violin up for her (It's beyond beautiful). Thank you so much for ensuring our daughter is setup for success with her new violin!
I have been keeping an eye on this violin for months, and my anticipation didn't go to waste! Overall, I'm very pleased with this outfit and I do recommend it, especially if you are using a cheap violin, you are not aware of what your missing lol Hats off for the amazing customer service, they respond fast and are very patient and kind, I also want to include the packaging team, I received my violin from America while I live in Israel with no scratch, the bridge was perfect, the violin was almost in tune, so I had to do just little tuning, If that means anything, It means that every customer needs are treated with upmost respect, every violin treated with a lot of care, so, as this is my first purchase, I doubt It will be the last (: The over all look and feel of the violin is pretty amazing, it feels very very expensive, the varnish looks so fancy, fine tuners are so easy to turn, they also did an impressive work on the peg box, the bridge is amazing, I can go on and on talking about this amazing violin! I have used a Chinese violin for years, and it feels like I was using a VSO (violin shaped object) all this time ( I don't want to mention the brand)! The sound and the playability is so smooth, even when the mute is on, It still sounds amazing! The violin case is amazing, looks fancy, it has a pocket that fits my violin sheets without the need to fold them (which I hate very much) there's enough space inside the violin for the shoulder rest or any other stuff. The silk bag looks so fancy, It keeps the violin away from dust, they also provide a thick velvet piece to cover the violin to keep it safe. There's a lock with keys which was a nice surprise for me, there's a nice tag as well. Five stars >3 >3 >3 >3 >3
