The Fiddlerman OB1 Violin Review

How does the Fiddlerman OB1 compare with the Fiddlerman Apprentice?

The OB1 is one of our top recommendations for beginners on a budget. It is well crafted from aged tonewoods, finished with a beautiful dark brown varnish, set up here in our shop to perfection, and produces deep and brilliant tones.

The OB1 is possible because of the combination of great connections and strong buying power! The fact that we can offer a quality violin that will last for years with an advancing level outfit is truly AMAZING. It's not uncommon to find this level violin for $300-$600 at other violin shops, (and that is without a quality outfit). Each violin is tested and will arrive ready to play out of the box. 
  • Every Fiddlerman instrument undergoes our famous 10-point inspection!
  • Lifetime Structural Warranty and Free Lifetime Adjustments (Contact Fiddlershop)
  • Solid-carved spruce and maple tone woods
  • 100% ebony fingerboard, pegs & fittings
  • Carbon Tailpiece with 4x Fine Tuners
  • Hand-carved french Aubert or Teller bridge
  • Spirit-based durable dark brown finish (no thick lacquer)
  • Wood dried a minimum of 4 years
  • Installed D’Addario Prelude Strings (teacher preferred)
  • Great for Suzuki and NAfME students
  • Precisely measured string height for easy and comfortable playability
  • The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box
  • Available in sizes: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 4/4
  • Strong, responsive, high-grade Carbon Fiber (far superior to Brazilwood)
  • Durable Siberian horse hair for a smooth, full tone

  • Genuine mother-of-pearl inlays
This outfit was really meant for higher level instruments, but we made it happen! You'll find a nice Oblong case, followed by our Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber bow, Shoulder Rest, and Rosin. Products that alone retail for over $200. We strive to offer this kind of quality outfit with every Fiddlerman violin we sell.

Great Outfit

I ordered the OB1 outfit on a Monday night and received it Thursday afternoon. Fast shipping and excellent communication. The violin is ready to go out of the box and sounds great! I have been playing for 2 months. The accessories are high quality. This is a great outfit. It is high quality at value prices. I will definitely recommend the Fiddler Shop and will do business with them again in the future. I give them a million stars!

Wonderful Experience

This is a great budget violin. I had never played a violin before purchasing my OB1 outfit, and felt a bit anxious about buying something without being able to see or hear it first. However, when I got the violin, I knew I made the right choice. I play the mandolin, and so I was able to start shakily playing some tunes on the OB1 right away. Highly recommended!

Great purchase.

Was glad I read reviews that recommended this company. This was our first violin purchase. It came in great shape and played right out of the box. My Russian teacher says it is a great buy for a beginner violin, and that is saying something since Russians are great at classical music.


The Best Fiddle/ Violin

I bought the Fiddlerman Ob1 violin for under $300. When I got the fiddle and opened up the package, I thought they made a mistake and gave me a $1000 violin! The violin itself is clearly top notch. Great tone woods, great bridge, quality tuners. The bow is clearly made of high quality materials. The case itself looks like a $100+ case. The case even brings a thermometer that tells you if the temperature where you are is to hot, cold, or just right. And like if that weren’t enough, they give you a premium wood edition shoulder rest, rosin, straps, polishing cloth and other things that are VERY useful. This set I believe, would actually be worth $600+ in my opinion. I really love my experience at Fiddlershop and I really appreciate all the effort they put into their instruments. I would rate the fiddlerman ob1 and Fiddlershop 15 stars out of 5 if it were possible. Thank you very much!
