No regrets!

As a relatively new violist (but previous intermediate violinist), I had to “downgrade” from my husband’s beautiful 16” older German viola due to increasing back/neck pain. I was on a limited budget and tight schedule, and couldn’t find many smaller violas locally. I took the leap buying online through Fiddlershop after watching their addictive videos. From the very beginning, they has been amazing in answering my questions through online chats and helped rectify a few issues I had upon receiving my instrument. It took me a little while to be okay with my new 15.5” Master Viola not having the same depth, projection, and rich tone of my aged 16” viola (which was to be expected)… But as the months have gone by, this 15.5” viola has opened up tremendously! I am amazed at how well it and resonates and "sings". I appreciate finally having tuning pegs that turn so smoothly and also stay in place, which is something you don’t often find at this price point. For me, the best part is having no more back/neck pain. I can practice on this smaller, lighter instrument for hours at a time and truly enjoy doing so. Definitely no regrets! Of the included accessories, I especially love the case. It’s heavy, but that’s how I know it’s solid and secure. (I barely blinked when a fellow orchestra member knocked it over with my viola inside.) And, despite already having a little stash of favourite rosins, I find myself solely using the Holstein rosin these past months — love it!

Absolutely ecstatic!

Wonderful experience! I have ordered a violin in the past and now the Master Viola from the Fiddlershop team and they are always so wonderful to work with! I recommend the Fiddlershop to all my students looking to buy a good dependable instrument. Couldn’t ask for anything better!

Should have done this sooner...

Bought my first Viola (15.5”) from Fiddlerman almost three yrs ago. Health issues (carpal tunnel surgery, two strokes) resulted in having to ‘downsize’ to a 14” viola. Not a popular size but Michael ordered one for me. I’m now claiming that I have a “$1,200.00, custom-made” viola which I can now play prettying easily. My experiences with Fiddlerman since I first found them have always been excellent, and I am grateful for their patience and understanding. In 2020 - the year of Covid - it is always refreshing to deal with merchants who genuinely care about their customers. �

Excellent Quality

When my daughter outgrew her Fiddlerman Artist Viola, we were going to repurchase it in the next size because it had been a wonderful viola. When the size she needed wasn't in stock, we looked at the Master Viola. It has a beautiful sound and surpassed our expectations. The Fiddlershop was great to work with too!

Master viola

Excellent. This is a beautiful instrument in both sound and appearance. The set up was great. Fiddlerman is a good outfit to do business with.
