I purchased two of these for my children who are just starting out on violin. For the price, they are hard to beat. Everything works as it should and with a little peg grease, it stays well in tune. The bows leave a lot to be desired, so I replaced them with much better carbon fiber ones. The cases are solid enough and while they don’t have much space for a shoulder rest, they do have enough room for a sponge. I only wish they had enough space to hold music books, but it’s a small gripe. Overall, these are the perfect starter violins for young kids. Nice enough to do the job and inexpensive enough that your heart doesn’t stop when they drop it.
I love the violin and the case. I just noticed however that one of the bows was broken (I only pulled the one out, and am just seeing the second now). I already sent an email to customer service, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
We had some bumps in the road with our order - starting with the violin being out of stock - but the company quickly found a solution and we were shipping one of better quality. But then it arrived with a broken strong, Fiddlershop got back to us right away and offered to send a replacement string and a link to videos on how to replace. The violin itself seems fine - it is for my daughter and she is just learning, but she has no complaints!
This was an upgrade in size. Seems to be a good student violin for the price. We like the sound. It was already set up.. Prompt shipping.
It’s great! But in having issues tuning :(
