    Amazing sound

    Easy to tune. Wonderful color and shape. The bows are in great condition. The sound is rich and creamy. The sound is loud but clear. Love it. The Rosin is very easy to use and convenient. Overall great packaging and beautiful artistry of violin creation. Would recommend 10/10.

    I'm very happy

    I'm very happy with this violin overall. It's my first one, so I have no point of reference, but it sounds and feels great to me. Two bows + case + rosin + chin rest make this a great starter kit. That said, it's not perfect and it's pretty clear that the manufacturer cut a few corners on the finish. The body is not finished underneath the fingerboard, and you can see where the fingerboard blocked the finish as it was sprayed on. Worse than that, the black finish used on the fake?) ebony fingerboard is rubbing off and staining my hands and fingertips as well as the neck of the violin. There are some spots where the finish is a little crusty and flaked off under my fingertips. Some easily fixed issues were that the One of the fine tuners was not well attached to the tailpiece, and the strings were not wound very carefully around the tuning pegs. Despite these little annoyances, I don't think that you can get much better for 200$, though if one of the major selling points is the "ebony" fingerboard, it should at least be made of ebony.


    my sister bought

    my sister bought it for me because iv been playing for 3.5 yrs and love playing violin.once i got it and tuned it and played it. I was like i have to wright a review. A violin with this sound should cost around 500 to 900 but its 200 i would recommend this beautiful violin to any intermediate violinist

    I am very

    I am very pleased with this violin, the CVN-500! It looks exactly like the photos above and has really nice wood finish and wood grain. The violin arrived 99% ready to go, just tuned it and played. Nice tone and sound and should only get better with time. My daughter is playing this as a replacement for a rental knilling buch.) and I consider this a nicer violin. Plus we are saving $25 month in rental fees. I really appreciate the video reviews, more than any site he provided perspective and allowed me to hear the instrument without driving all over with a beginner to find a violin. Received in less than a week in the case with outer cardboard box. The case is very light weight and includes 2 straps and a handle for carrying. I could see buying a better case at some point but this one is fine for now. We will also experiment with some strings in the future. Great purchase.Thanks Fiddlerman!
