I am impressed with the violin, the bag and accessories. I am a happy customer!
Very very happy. I received my violin quickly and was surprised at it’s good quality. The salesman knew everything I needed as a beginner who knew nothing. It hasn’t been a month yet and I can already play a few things. Thanks Bill Dailey
I'm pretty happy with this violin. It has a nice sound and feel to it. I wanted a good quality violin to start off with as a beginner. The price was within what I was willing to spend on a decent instrument. I feels like it was worth it and I'm happy with it.
