The Fiddlershop Family

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! Each Fiddlerman violin is set up in our workshop.

 Every Fiddlerman instrument undergoes our famous 10-point inspection!

This is such a sweet sounding instrument. Very comfortable to play it feels very natural and is really beautiful to look at. I cant belive that the cost was low as it was I would have expected this viola to cost at least twice what it did. It was set up and ready to play right out of the case, the rosin is of good quality, the bow has a great sound the case is sturdy and well protects the instrument and its goodies, the only problem I have with the case is I have to disassemble the shoulder rest for it to fit in the compartment but that's no big deal. Having a latch, zippers and a flap with buttons to ensure the case will not come open and to aid in protecting the instrument. It's just a really great deal at this price I wouldn't even think of renting one just because even if you bought it and decided it wasn't for you I cant imagine not being able resell it for what you have in it but I intend to keep and play it for long time.

Beautiful viola!

I was so excited to get my viola. It was my first brand new one. It came completely set up and tuned. Just needed a little fine tuning due to cold weather. Viola is beautiful in looks and sound. I recommend this company highly! Thank you!
