The Fiddlerman OB1 Violin Review

How does the Fiddlerman OB1 compare with the Fiddlerman Apprentice?

The OB1 is one of our top recommendations for beginners on a budget. It is well crafted from aged tonewoods, finished with a beautiful dark brown varnish, set up here in our shop to perfection, and produces deep and brilliant tones.

The OB1 is possible because of the combination of great connections and strong buying power! The fact that we can offer a quality violin that will last for years with an advancing level outfit is truly AMAZING. It's not uncommon to find this level violin for $300-$600 at other violin shops, (and that is without a quality outfit). Each violin is tested and will arrive ready to play out of the box. 
  • Every Fiddlerman instrument undergoes our famous 10-point inspection!
  • Lifetime Structural Warranty and Free Lifetime Adjustments (Contact Fiddlershop)
  • Solid-carved spruce and maple tone woods
  • 100% ebony fingerboard, pegs & fittings
  • Carbon Tailpiece with 4x Fine Tuners
  • Hand-carved french Aubert or Teller bridge
  • Spirit-based durable dark brown finish (no thick lacquer)
  • Wood dried a minimum of 4 years
  • Installed D’Addario Prelude Strings (teacher preferred)
  • Great for Suzuki and NAfME students
  • Precisely measured string height for easy and comfortable playability
  • The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box

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.

Great Experience!

First off we originally had ordered the Tower Legends outfit and after a few confusing emails and a couple of calls I was advised the item I had orders was out of stock and was offered a free upgrade to the Fiddlerman OB1 outfit, so great customer service experience despite the initial confusion. We had ordered two one for myself and one for my son and received them quickly and packed with extra care. The instruments are beautiful and honestly surpassed my expectations for a beginners violin for which we were pleasantly surprised. My son was especially excited since he was able to get it in time for his UIL competition at school and wasn’t forced to use the 3/4 one he had out grown due to a sudden growth spurts this fall.

Couldnt ask for more

Great company! I placed my order with ease and confidence. The description was very thorough as was the inspection of my order prior to shipping. This purchase was for my daughters full size Violin and I could not be happier with our choice. I would highly recommend the Fiddlershop. I am now a customer for life!

Extremely nice violin kit

Overall a very good experience! One thing we noticed is that the tuning pegs slip a little sometimes. Is that common for new violins and new strings?

Nice violin. And case. However there was a China sticker on the case. Are the cases made in China? Violins.

Amazing first violin!

I bought the OB1 outfit for my 6 year old daughter about 6 months ago. She absolutely loves it! She was previously using her instructor’s violin and she loves hers so much more. Even at her age she can tell the difference in sound and playability between the two. For the 1/4 size, the OB1 sounds wonderful. We love the sounds that come from it. It has really boosted her confidence in learning to play music. The Fiddlerman bow that came with it is easy for her to handle and it’s weight is just right for her. She is extremely proud of her OB1 and everything that came with it. Her instructor was impressed as well and loves her case. The OB1 violin and outfit is absolutely perfect for children getting into the wonderful world of strings! She takes excellent care of her OB1 and is quite proud of it. She is very quick to tell anyone who calls it a violin or fiddle that is a OB1 in a matter of fact way and that they should remember lol. My husband also has the OB1 and outfit in 4/4 size of course. He plays guitar and piano but also wanted to join us in the violin world. Our daughter loves the fact they have matching violins. He is extremely pleased at how well it sounds and the ease of playing it. For the price you are getting more from a violin than you think. Those who thinking of joining the violin world but not sure if they will stay should definitely give the OB1 a try. They won’t be disappointed! Many thanks to the Fiddlerman staff in assisting me getting the right violin for my little girl. She loves it and couldn’t be happier.
