Thin Under the Ears
The Fiddlerman 5-string Violin Outfit is a great deal for the price. For me I found the violin sounded a bit to thin for me under the ear. I had to work at getting the instrument to speak out when played. That's not to say the violin sounded bad. I just needed a little more out of the instrument. I am happy to you are in good hands with Fiddlershop and its staff when it comes to finding the right instrument for you!
Love it! Thank you.
I have mine 5 string from July 2019. AAA set up all perfect, but because of use CR5 electric 5 years I have to match arch of bridge to fit my right hand. It was just cosmetic. I started every day 2+ hours of fiddling and after 1 week I take it out to gig. Audience and band members recognized new sound and they LOVE it! I LOVE IT MORE! For Classic Country show time I'm using Realist Copper below bridge pickup and Quilter Mach2 10" amp. Not too long ago I have opportunity to play with guy who was using more expensive "Realist 5string violin". Sound and finish of his violin was no match for Fidlerman 5string. You made my day again! Acoustic or electric sound is top,
Love this instrument!
I used this exact model while student teaching and purchased one for myself. This is an amazing teaching tool, and as a violist I am very impressed with the C string sound! Such an amazing instrument for the price. I highly recommend it!
Exceptionally attractive and beautiful spun and range
The 5-string violin was stunningly beautiful at first sight! The tone and range are amazing for a reasonable rice and enameled me to play viola and violin music on the one Fiddlershop instrument.
I don’t usually write reviews, but these guys were so good and accommodating, I felt compelled to help out my fellow musicians. I’m a fiddle player. I play mostly bluegrass, old-timey, gospel, rock, etc. I’ve been looking to get into a 5-string for a while now. I was in their area, called them up, and they told me to come on over. When I got there they had an assortment of 5-strings for me to check out from different makers in one of their large sound rooms. I must say that these guys weren’t pushy or in rush to sell me something. They’re highly qualified, professional, understanding, considerate, and they went the extra mile to help me out. After hours of playing I picked out a Fiddlerman 5-string with a dark, open, loud, and haunting sound. Then, they made the extra adjustments to get it to play the way I like it. They got it right on! I got lots of bang for the buck. These guys are awesome. Great coffee too. Thanks again.
