My experience with Fiddlerman was great. Received as expected. The Violin is beautiful no flaws, all of the accessories were nice.
I'm glad spent a few extra bucks for a better violin setup than some VSO(Violin Shaped Object). It's just good to have a violin that holds it's tuning for a long time. Also, the whole setup is so good. Anyone looking forward to buy Violins from Fiddlershop, you won't be disappointed. Good Luck Practicing.
Great overall experience.
This violin is a upgrade for me, and it is my very first NEW violin. The violin was well packaged for shipping, and FedEx handled it very gently. The sound is not squeaky, very harmonious. The bow is very comfortable to play with. Big piece of rosin, which is great! The only problem I seem to have is I can't tune the A string right... Overall, the quality, the color, and the service is top notch! I would recommend it!
It was really easy, so informative as well. Really enjoying my violin. Looks beautiful and shipping was so fast .
