The Fiddlerman Left Handed Concert Violin was designed from the ground up for violinists overcoming injuries, lack of mobility or dexterity in their left hand, and those who need to play the violin in opposite hands. It is not intended for violinists who are left hand dominant, as the violin is traditionally played on the left shoulder regardless of which hand is dominant.

A Natural Selection
If you are left-handed and the world is telling you to play the "right" way, well then have I got a testimony for you. I have always wanted to learn the secrets of the violin but was not blessed with a means to do so until adulthood. Now, I have a four-year-old daughter who also loves the violin and has started lessons. I initially purchased a right-handed violin because I found a decent one available at a local **** shop and I am hoping my daughter and I can learn together. She has been progressing faster than me and in the first two months, she has mastered her twinkles. I was still sputtering and screeching through them. I am a full-blown leftie and play the ukulele restrung left-handed because my steady hand is my right hand and my fluid hand is my left. I drive a standard transmission and can use my right hand but it takes way more brainpower and never really FEELS natural even after 20 years. Anyways, I was beginning to lose hope because I knew I would need a left-handed violin to make any progress and sound even slightly refined and polished. I probably spent 3 solid days of researching my options and chose to take the $519 leap of faith. I ordered 11/16 and had my violin on 11/19. I was so impressed with not only the speed of arrival, but also the quality, and everything you see is what you get. This site is refreshingly transparent in its merchandise, compared to other online shopping options, going as far as uploading customer videos on YouTube of them playing their more expensive purchases before shipping to their new owner. After a very quick tune with the convenient fine tuners (it was already in tune just needed to be sharpened or flattened a touch after shipping), I played all the twinkle variations for the first time without all the extra harmonics and unplanned chords. I FINALLY HAD CONTROL OVER THE BOW. Over the course of the last two days, I have learned how to play "Maggie in the wood" and "Drunken Sailor". I actually found myself wanting to try new songs knowing I could progress in them. My violin is named Cordelia, and I am so in love. The power to create good music is a priceless treasure to my ears. My plan is that I will continue playing for the next few years and when it's time to upsize my daughter's violin I will be rewarding myself with the Master version, which I have already picked out the name, Octavia, for her.
So happy with my first ever violin! It looks and sounds amazing, such a precious little instrument :) I’ve just started learning it as an adult - it’s never too late to pick up a hobby! - and I was glad to find a tutor who was willing to teach a left-handed beginner. It was quite difficult to find a left-handed violin, too, so I’m very grateful for you guys for still making some for us. Can’t wait to be able to upgrade to the Master violin!
I had converted a right to play left, the sound quality was not quite there. My new left hand violin sounds great
