1st time violin buyer
Great! I made my decision based upon their online videos and other violin instructor's online reviews. It is a great instrument. I think it is much better than all of the other beginner instruments I have heard and handled. Our private tutor even stated it has a great sound. His first comment was, "Wow, that sounds good! Where did you get that violin?"
Very pleased with everything.
When I called to discuss ordering I was very pleased with the informed and kind Custer service I received. I am still very new to the violin and was unsure about many thing, however the customer service representative was able to give me the understanding and help I needed. The violin came very quickly and I was please from the very start. All I had to do was some minor tuning and went right to playing. The sound is excellent, so much better then the instrument I was playing. Shortly after receiving the violin and bow, the new bow had a problem. I called customer service and within days had a new bow to replace the damaged one. Very please and intend to use them for all my violin needs.

Amazing sound and feel!
I recently purchased the Artist outfit and haven't looked back for a second. This was an upgrade from my $200 student violin and the difference is astounding! Really excellent sound and feel to the instrument and this has by far been the best investment in my music learning journey. With the cheap student violin it was such a struggle to get an ok sound out of it; half my effort was trying to make the instrument work rather than learning technique. Now with the Artist it is almost effortless drawing the music from the strings, bow bouncing is basically gone, long beautiful sweet sounding notes - everything feels and plays even and sound just absolutely beautiful. If you are looking to progress from your first student violin purchase to a proper instrument you can grow with, this is a very good option for your upgrade.
