I've been playing the Viola for 6 years and always borrowed a school instrument. When i saw this viola i wasn't too sure about it but seeing more information about it and the return policy I though, "Why not give it a try?" As soon as it arrived, I was so excited to play it. Everything came in good shape and I absolutely LOVE this instrument! The sound is so beautiful and so is the instrument itself. I will cherish this instrument and take good care of it for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this product!
This instrument is not only a beauty but a very fine piece of equipment. My daughter looooooves it and we listened to many and I mean many different violas and for this to be a beginners instrument it is just beyond me. It sounds marvelous and the care taken in shipping it to us was impeccable. I would definately recommend and be purchasing more strings from Fiddlershop. It came as stated and ready to play right out of the box. Thank you Fiddlershop for the fine quality and craftsmanship. If you need a jewel on a dime buy from Fiddlershop its sure to be the right find.
This is the second instrument I've purchased from Fiddlershop, but is my first viola. I wanted to try something with a deeper sound than the violin but didn't want to spend too much for a "trying it out" instrument. I'd been looking at violas in this price range elsewhere and was concerned I'd get a broken instrument or something with a poor setup. The latter part felt even more important than it usually would. Due to social distancing, visiting a luthier isn't as easy as it once was in my city. Luckily, I saw this model and that Fiddlershop would inspect and do the setup. It arrived on time and ready to play. It looks and sounds beautiful and the accessories are a nice addition. I'm still surprised I got something this great at this price. Will definitely continue to look to Fiddlershop for my violin/viola needs.
For someone without experience in music, this is an excellent starter viola. It is easy to play and came set up. The shoulder rest is nice and rosin was appropriate for my location. Fiddlershop is FANTASTIC. If you are considering getting into music, this is the place to start!
I am thoroughly enjoying my new viola, and I am very glad that I decided to get one the Fiddlershop luthiers had set up instead of something just "as is" from China. The set up was great, and it was ready to play as soon as I resined up the bow. And that bow is better than I expected -- I will want to upgrade, but it is perfectly functional for a start. The little digital tuner that was included is also very handy. All in all, I am very happy with this instrument and the service I received.
