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.
We have a limited stock of these instruments. Every instrument has a different imperfection. Please find attached pictures for examples of these visual flaws.
The "Midnight" Violin
The Midnight violin is a great starter violin that anyone can afford! We opted to have an all-black version that is less expensive because the varnish time is considerably faster. It certainly helps that it's a darn cool-looking violin as well! We have never been happy with what the market had to offer in this price range. The set up, accessories, and quality of build is far above anything we have tested in this price range!

I just got my violin today and what a beauty! Black all over with a bit of a sparkle.. Ready to play, which is awesome since I'm a beginner. The bow is so light! The case is lovely and everything was packed beautifully. Fiddlershop is my go to violin store from now on! Shout out to the lady who answered my phone call, your customer service is awesome! This is a small company I am happy to support!
My overall experience was superb roger who helped me was great through the whole process..the violin is superb. A bit fussy still. It has a new set of fiddlerman violin strings on it as well as a new bridge, and its much easier playing now.. The sound is better also.. The new strings are still stretching..the only thing now is a new bow...will be getting the holstein wooden bow shortly.. Other than that for the price the violin kit was a great buy.. And i am happy with it....
I am a beginning fiddle player, and started out with JUNK from amazon, it would never stay tuned, and i gave up easily. However I still had a desire to play and saw Filddershop online, purchased this.. and love it! fantastic company, and fantastic product. shipping was great!
Easy to order, fast shipping and everything was as expected. It’s quite a complete kit to get you started and especially to see if you want to play long term without a long term rental contract. A very good experience and I’m a happy customer! Steve H
I received everything and in good quality. On mine you can barely tell the varnish issue. Very pleased with the purchase and I did buy the upgrade strings. Very good starter kit for anyone.
