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!
We ordered this at the recommendation of our music studio. Ordering was easy and the violin came right on time. It is a beautifully crafted instrument. We had to replace the rosin, as the quality wasn’t great. Other than that, it was an excellent purchase.
Fiddlershop is great and i do recommend them however i can not say the same for the towerstrings. I did send it back and was refunded. I do plan on buying a better violin when i can afford it through them
My 8 year old wasn't impressed. Or was I Didn't like the quality of if strings and the shoulder rest was worthless It's sturdy and good otherwise but she's not encourage to play because the sound isn't as expected.
I've always been fantasied over string instruments and did so much research to find the perfect violin for me. I never played the violin before and I wanted to pay for the amount I received since it was going to be my first violin. I'm 18 years old so I purchased a 4/4 violin. It came SUPER fast which I was so surprised by the amount that came in with the violin. I didn't however receive the Ultra Practice Mute, which I wanted to give it a go. Other than that, It was the best violin I purchased by far! I HIGHLY encourage beginners to invest in this item.
I was looking for a cheap violin as at 42 and with fickle attention span I was not sure if my desire to learn fiddle would match my patience in practicing daily. This was a great option as a starter- it sounded really good to me in the fiddlerman review vids (some violins just hurt my ears but this is rich). Only been using it 3 days but so far am loving it! It had a peg issue but fiddlershop was awesome and fixed the issue right away and it was a blessing in disguise as I learned about and upgraded to geared pegs... seriously the best choice ever for a beginner. I purchased the cheapest thing at the store but the shop treated me like I purchased a $18,000 Stradivarius. If only all customer service in the world were this good. As for the violin- for the price it is great quality and has a nice sound that I really like and am happy to have next to my head to practice with over the next year.
