How does the Artist compare with the Concert?

How does the Artist compare with the Master?


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 violinist 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 set up in our workshop.

Excellent craftsmanship and resonance

I received a marvelous gift this past Christmas: an Artist Violin Outfit purchased from Fiddlershop. I have inspected the instrument carefully and found that it is as advertised, one made with fine wood and of excellent craftsmanship. The top is of fine-grained spruce, the sides and back are maple with a pronounced flame that glows nicely. The neck is well machined and is also of maple with a fine curled figure. The purfling is cut and set in with exactness. Overall, the instrument has an excellent appearance. The bridge is well shaped and presents an action that is quite playable. The strings are of good quality. The shoulder rest was workable but I prefer my Kun folding shoulder rest for comfort and flexibility. Either of them easily fit within the confines of a roomy and well-padded case. The literature on the Fiddlershop website is accurate; the instrument is playable right out of the box. It has undoubtedly been crafted and set up by a skilled luthier and musician. This violin has excellent resonance. It's sound is full and rich; it sounds as good as it looks. I look forward to playing this instrument for decades to come!

Fiddlerman Artist

So far I am extremely satisfied with both the service and quality of my new fiddle. I made a request for a one-piece back which was filled with just 2 addl days of processing. For the price, you cannot bear a Fiddlerman fiddle!

Worth every penny

I bought the Artist violin over 2 months ago. I wanted to pick the violin up once again after barely playing for 4 years. The playability of this instrument is fantastic; didn't take long to feel comfortable at all and produce a sweet sound at all. The tone is warm and dark, (maybe a tad bit too much in higher positions on the A string), but the projection is excellent so the instrument never sounds "quiet". It will probably only get better as I play it more. The outfit that comes with it is good to- the practice mute has proven to be especially useful, since I live in an apartment shared with other people and don't want to disturb anyone. Except for the slightly muffled tone on the higher A string, it is pretty much perfect, especially for the price.



I am so totally blown away by this violin. I still consider myself to be a beginner but when I picked this violin up to play a few songs the sound was so rich and amazing. I was a little bit afraid to put out the money but it was well worth it! I am now even more motivated to continue to play. I just can't put it down! Love it! And customer service has been just wonderful, answering all my questions. Thanks so much!!!

Very pleased!!!

I received my Artist violin a day earlier than expected. It is a beautiful instrument with rich, full sound. I am thankful to have this instrument and to have received it from an actual shop, not just a online warehouse.
