Every now and then we receive an instrument from our workshop with a visual imperfection. The instrument might have a small nick, scratch or a miss-coloration in the varnish. These visual issues do not affect the performance or playability of the instrument. However, we would never put these instruments into our regular inventory.
Just like every other Fiddlerman instrument we sell, this instrument is set up to perfection by our talented luthiers and is covered by our lifetime structural warranty.
We have a limited stock of these instruments. Every instrument has a different imperfection. Please find attached pictures for examples of these visual flaws.

Good experience, at first I thought it was shrill, but now the strings and instrument are opening up. My only issue would be the height of the strings, they are a little higher than I 'm used to. thank you Bill
I am 100% satisfied with my new B-Stock Fiddlerman Artist Violin. I was also highly impressed by the quick, friendly and completely professional customer service I received via telephone (for advice on which violin would suit my needs) and email (for the actual violin I was to receive). The final product when I received it in short order was a marvel to me too…I kept picking up all the extra things that come with the instrument and could not believe the value for money I was getting with my purchase….all this AND a fantastic looking and sounding violin?!!! Great work all of you! I thank you from the bottom of my heart and will not hesitate to buy from you all again in the future!
Loving my new fiddle ❤️
Last year I had this crazy idea that a 60 year old, with no musical experience, could learn how to play the fiddle. I bought a very cheap fiddle online and started the struggle. I received my new Fiddlershop violin today, and I have no idea why it was B grade. My wife and I both inspected it thoroughly, and couldn't find even a slight flaw. More importantly, the sound and playability is light years ahead of my first fiddle. I could instantly tell that I had made a great choice. My challenge now is to play up to the quality of my new instrument. Thank you Fiddlershop
I was looking for a beginner violin that would sound good, not be hard to tune but also allow me to progress a few years or longer before upgrading. This violin has exceeded my expectations - it sounds amazing on all strings and projects quite well. The sound is better than in the online videos, especially the E string.Tuning has been easier than I expected and the pegs move smoothly. The fit and finish is quite good. The case and accessories are all very good. I really like the rosin that came with this violin. The Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber bow is nicely balanced, easy to hold and plays with very little effort. The Fiddlershop staff were all very responsive and helpful. Thanks Fiddlershop!
Absolutely love my new violin!
Couldn’t have asked for more. Was treated with respect and care. All my questions were addressed and my artist series violin arrived in perfect condition. Would highly recommend this company and their products!
