Outstanding Quality, Mind-blowing Service

I played viola when I was in 6th grade, but moved to guitar the next year. That was 17 years ago, and I've just picked it back up. From the moment I completed checkout to the moment the package arrived at my door, I waited just three days. The instrument arrived in beautiful condition, with ample protection. On top of that, I only had to fine tune the A string (humidity and temperature changes during shipping) and I was ready to play. That blew me away. This instrument is quite possibly the best value I've ever seen, heard, or felt. She sings like an angel, with no dead notes or harsh sounds anywhere, warm and somber. Incredibly comfortable in the hand. The Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow is very easy to control, with wonderful balance and great craftsmanship. The case is very nice. It has four bow holders, a front zipper pocket for music or whatever you may need to take with you, and two interior compartments for accessories. It has a hygrometer to monitor the temperature and relative humidity inside the case. I would definitely trust this case to protect my viola. You get a cake of quality rosin (I'll touch on that in a bit), a shoulder rest, Fiddlerman polishing cloth, and a very high quality bag for your instrument. Seriously, that is a luxurious bag. They also put some great-sounding strings on the viola (or whichever Fiddlerman instrument you purchase). This brings me to the amazing service at Fiddlershop. Every single Fiddlerman instrument that leaves their shop, is set up and tuned by an experienced luthier. When you receive your instrument, it will have a sheet of paper in the case. This is the inspection and setup checklist, and it is signed and dated by the luthier. A nice touch to give a little piece of mind that my viola was handled by a real, experienced professional. Remember how I said I'd come back to the rosin? Well, I was expecting to get a cheap rosin suited for beginners. Nope. Fiddlershop sent me a cake of their new Holstein Reserve. This stuff is incredible! It gives your bow such a beautiful feel on the strings. The prefect balance between grippy and smooth. This rosin is on par with the priciest examples out there, for literally a fraction of the cost! Fiddlershop did not have to do that, but they did anyway because they care. The viola itself is a work of art, sonically and visually. It hums and sings like it was birthed in the heavens. From the lows to the highs, she will please your ears and eyes. The grain on the spruce top is even and free of blemishes. The maple back, sides, and neck have a beautiful, deep flame. And the oil varnish only enhances everything. This is a fine instrument that I would be proud to play in any ensemble, without hesitation. Hands down, the best value I've ever gotten in any instrument. You would be a fool to pass up a Fiddlerman instrument!

Playing is Believing

Second time buyer (after OB1 Violin last year), and instrument arrived promptly and ready to play right out of the box...I did not even adjust the fine tuners, much less the pegs. After initial bow rosin, the Concert Viola sang beautifully and the sound resonated out of her 16.5" body like a Met diva. I could not be happier with the purchase. If you've got a great violin shop nearby, of course, patronize them, but otherwise, count on Fiddlershop and its outstanding instrument.
