      Included Accessories:

      This outfit was really meant for higher level instruments, but we made it happen! You'll find a nice oblong case, followed by our Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber Bow, shoulder rest, and rosin. Products that alone retail for over $200. We strive to offer this kind of quality outfit with every Fiddlerman violin we sell.

      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.

      Great Violin

      The entire experience was wonderful. I spoke to fiddlershop employees before the purchase, and they were very knowledgeable. We are very happy with the instrument. My son's violin teacher was so impressed by the quality and value, she contacted them to begin a relationship of her own. I will never use any other violin store.

      Awesome experience

      My dealings with you guys was great from the start. It truly has been a pleasure dealing with you. The instrument is amazing and I am bragging to all of my friends. I have been a musician for over 50 years and never have I enjoyed buying an instrument more. You guys rock!

      The best violin I've owned so far

      I am so happy with my new violin that I cant wait to save up and order another in the future the quality has by far exceeded my expectations and i couldnt be happier with the carbon fiber bow. Definitely will be recommending it to others.

      Little Violin, Great sound

      We love Fiddlershop! Three of our kids and myself have started lessons, we’ve purchased all our stuff from Fiddlershop and service is second to none. Quick delivery, everything always arrives safe and well packaged. Teachers very impressed with Fiddlerman quality for price. I’d love to be able to shop local but there is just nowhere to even get close to the value you get with Fiddlerman outfits. Plus, did I mention the service is exceptional! My daughter loves that her 1/4 violin looks just like big sisters and has all the same quality accessories. Our teacher commented that even the rosin is high quality. We decided on the apprentice because it is such a good value, I wanted my daughter to have an instrument she could be proud of. It even has a little flaming that she loves (and shows off). Every little bit to encourage playing helps, she likes to just get it out to look at it and once it’s out, she can’t help but play. I feel like I did my due diligence looking and shopping around and I will only buy from Fiddlershop. Save yourself some time and stress, buy Fiddlershop, you won’t regret it! Thanks Fiddlerman (and friends) for a great experience. Someday we’ll have to make a trip to Florida to see the shop in person PS: Fiddlerman website is also awesome for lots of learning material.

      Excellent Violin

      I purchased this violin to replace my Cecilio because I was tired of the scratching I kept hearing and moving up in skills I just wanted a better sounding violin. Well, I got it. Shipping was fast, I got it within a week of ordering and it was everything I expected plus some. The case is amazing and has plenty of storage. The violin itself just needed a little tuning out of the case but it was already set up and ready to play. The bow is of nice quality. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting a quality violin at a decent price. I've been playing for about 4 years and this is my 3rd violin. I am thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship and quality. You can't beat the sound for a beginner violin.
