Fiddlerman Apprentice Violin Reviews

How does the Fiddlerman OB1 compare with the Fiddlerman Apprentice?

How does the Fiddlerman Apprentice compare with the Fiddlerman Concert?

The Fiddlershop Family

Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and blowing away its competitors?

Fiddlerman himself tests and curates the violins and works directly with the maker to produce only the best. With over 40 years as a professional player of orchestras around the world, he knows what he's doing. We buy our violins directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you! Each Fiddlerman violin is setup in our workshop.

  • 100% ebony fingerboard, pegs & fittings

This violin plays itself

This is my first review I've ever written, but I felt compelled to do so! I bought a 200 dollar stentor outfit from Amazon that was recommended to me as a beginner, when I got it I felt something was missing, being my first violin I didn't know what it was... I looked and read every single thing I could about entry level violins and my research let me to the apprentice. The immediate difference I noticed right away was the weight, it's much lighter. The varnish isn't a laquer, it had a Matt finish. I then rubbed it and the action is way lower and much easier to play. The sound is far Superior especially on the g string. The stentor was really scratchy even with dominant strings. The apprentice holds a solid note all the way through the stroke of the bow with almost no pressure. It's a whole different experience. If you get what you pay for, and if 350$ gets you this, then I can only imagine what the artist sounds like. My only issue is weather I should have spent the extra 50$ on the concert violin..... The violin is set up beautifully, maybe this has something to do with the experience, but I love it, the color, texture, should, playability and the feel. The outfit is great, bow is awesome, great purchase!! It's a no brainier

The service and on line purchasing were great and the quality of the fiddle and case were even more than expected. Thanks!

Apprentice violin outfit

I wish I had bought this outfit sooner instead of buying several cheap violins that were not easy to play at all. This is a very good deal and would highly recommend it.

Exceptional service

I have been ordering from Fiddlershop for almost two years now. My first purchase was the Master violin outfit for myself, a beautiful instrument. I just purchased a 1/2 size Apprentice violin outfit for my 9 year old grand daughter. I had to return it because of a defect. Fiddlershop immediately shipped out a replacement. In those two years I have purchased many accessories from Fiddlershop’s extensive inventory (Lesson books, extra carbon fiber bow, chin rest accessories, Snark tuning devices for the whole family). All these accessories were less expensive than any other shop or even Amazon. Shipping is free over $20, so how can you go wrong? Great warranty on all their products with no hassle! Once my 11 year old grand daughter graduates to playing my full size Master violin, I will be contacting Fiddlershop to select my next instrument. Thank you for your great service!
