Fiddlerman Concert Violin Review
How does the Apprentice compare with the Concert?

What does B-stock mean?
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.
Big, bold sounding, great "hand feel", precisely-functioning components and an inspiring look! Carefully selected aged tonewood with real ebony fittings and careful hand-varnishing brings out the natural beauty of the wood and the tone. Fine balance and powerful projection are enhanced by our own Fiddlerman Violin strings!

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.
I ordered this new fiddle for my daughter for her Birthday, it arrived super fast, in excellent condition and came with everything she needed to get started playing right away. It has quality sound and structure, very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend this company!

My daughter and I, are very grateful and pleased with your excellent service, the violin is beautiful, has a wonderful sound, we are from Guatemala, and arrived very well. Thank you so much!!
B-Stock Fiddlerman Concert Violin Outfit
Excellent fiddel :-) I can appreciate the tonal difference and quality build. Have no doubt this is quality. I feel you will enjoy also ! THANKS, O. Stewart Sr.
The violin is beautiful. It took a lot of looking to figure out why it was b-stock, just a small scratch and two tiny imperfections in the varnish. Things to note though, the case it comes with is neither of the cases shown in these pictures. It’s the case shown on the listing for the normal fiddlerman concert (Grey, no hygrometer). The bow also looks like it’s used and had new hair put on it. Given the price paid, these things don’t bother me too much. But they might for some.
Received my violin the week before Christmas. Everything was as advertised. Order was processed quickly and received well packaged. I played 20+ years ago in school and looking to get back into it but didnt want to spend a lot. I ordered the b stock concert and it's almost pristine condition. Had a small scratch on the edge that was so small I overlooked it twice. My only complaint is that I asked to have the finger position chart added to the fingerboard and was not done. Not a huge deal. Will definitely order from fiddlershop again. Overall great experience
