My New Fiddlerman 5-String Violin

As usual, my instrument was impeccably packaged and arrived swiftly and in great shape across to the UK within the week. It was beautifully set up for me according to what I had instructed and did not take long fir me to tune - considering its mammoth trip across the Atlantic! The violin case and accessories are all excellent quality and the Fiddlerman bow perfectly acceptable to me - altho' I have since upgraded my bow - carbon bows are still great imo tho'! I wanted to play my instrument in for a while before writing my review and have now had my instrument for a few weeks! I find it to be gloriously beautiful - at first I just wanted to sit and look at it! Anyway, the tone is already very rich and full and I really enjoy playing it and look forward very much to hearing it develop even further in tone over the years to come! Greatly recommend as I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this instrument - despite current economic circumstances being rather less favourable recently between the US and the UK!

An absolutely beautful instrument

I've had my 5 string fiddle for about two weeks now and couldn't be happier. The tone is deep and resonant, the articulation is clear and fingering is so easy that it's a joy to play. I expected there to be a learning curve with the C string but -- other than getting used to a rounder bridge -- everything has felt natural from the first day. Both the craftsmanship and Fiddlerman's service are excellent. In terms of the outfit, the case is well made and the tuner is easy to use. However, the rest of the accessories were less to my taste. I've replaced the shoulder rest with a Wolf Forte Secondo, the carbon fiber bow with a pernambuco bow, and the Vision strings and rosin with Violino strings and Obligato rosin. I'm going to enjoy this fiddle for many years into the future. Thank you!

Great experience

Great experience from start to finish. I booked an appointment to go try out the violin in person and they were very helpful and accommodating. I purchased it at the appointment and had it shipped home as I live in Canada. When it arrived, it was exactly as expected, and so carefully packaged. As for the sound, it is beautiful and warm. I am starting to get the hang of it as I had only played 4 string before this. I was a bit clumsy to start, but it’s coming along. I love it, and had wanted one for years. Thank you so much! I am absolutely delighted!

Just what I was looking for!

I wanted an instrument that would allow me to play in any section of the orchestra with ease. I wanted my students to see an acoustic instrument that resembled the instruments they are playing on. I got this and so much more. The outfit was the most comprehensive outfit I've ever purchased. I will recommend to my students that they buy their instruments from Fiddlershop as well. I loved how it was set up and adore the quality of sound that I am producing. It's taking me just a minute to adjust to the five strings because my bow angles are slightly off but with practice, I'll have it down in no time. HIGHLY recommended purchase for any orchestra teacher out there!
