I really like my Glasser violin.
This violin / fiddle is truly a great bargain. Although expert, classical/purist violinists might not find the tone subtleties quite as good, for those (like me) who primarily play just Old Time Appalachian fiddle tunes and styles (Round Peak), and frequently play not only in standard but also in cross tunings, this 4/4 fiddle is exceptional. The geared pegs and setup it came with make for effortless playablity, and the tone and volume are outstanding. One can't go wrong with this. Many thanks, Fiddlerman Shop and Glasser for making this product available at an extremely affordable price.
Surprisingly good sound, looks good and good quality. Makes a good travel violin.
This violin was ordered to gift to a lady who was headed to the mission field in Honduras. The ordering process was very efficient and the shipping was timely (we had just a week to get it into her hands before departure). She loves the instrument and reported that it is perfect especially for the environment she is now in. Thanks for a great experience.
This is a totally serviceable fiddle, and a good value for the price. I’m not about to let go of my old wood violin, but this is a good choice when durability is more important than sound. As for the sound of this violin, it is totally playable, but lacks the warmth and depth of tone that a good wood violin has. The carbon seems to have a sort of thin sound on the high strings and a deep “thumpy” sound on the low strings. It is very resonate and the low strings really do like to get going with sympathetic vibrations, which can get kind of muddy for delicate tunes in standard tuning. However, those qualities also make it really fun for cross-tuned old-time fiddle tunes. The combination of the mechanical tuners and the resonate “thumpy” sound have made this my go-to fiddle for tunes in open tunings. When you also consider the durability of the instrument, it really does earn a place in the quiver for summer festivals where extremes of weather or whiskey might threaten a finer instrument.
