A Good Solid Axe

Last summer I received my Fiddlerman Soloist violin, and it exceeded my expectations. I didn’t want to stop playing it long enough to write this review. However, I feel like I owe something to those fiddlers who might wish to avail themselves of a similar experience! The action is perfect. And so is the sound—sweet and clear, with beautiful overtones and lots of kick when needed. This is a solid, no-frills axe, with no extra carving on the pegs & no decoration on the tailpiece. For you guitar players out there, it’s roughly equivalent to a D-18, with even tone across all strings. And the high strings?—OMG, they really sing! While plenty lustrous, the custom antique finish (yellow-brown, in this instance) really brings out the grain, and I would bet that no two Soloists look exactly alike. It would be fun to visit the shop sometime and see a few of them lined up side-by-side. Everything else in the outfit is high-quality, too. I especially like the yellow sandalwood bow, which is easy to wield, has a warm sound, and after six months of hard fiddling shows no sign of warping or loss of hair. I'll close with a special thanks to Clare, who brought this wonderful instrument to my attention.

Very pleased

Violin arrived perfectly in tune. Love the tone and feel. Wonderful sales person who was so knowledgeable and helpful. It is difficult to buy stringed instruments over the phone but she made me very comfortable buying sight unseen. Thank you.

I had purchased strings and other accessories from Fiddlershop but was reluctant to purchase an instrument without playing it first. But the combination of videos, reviews from other players, and the great customer service I had experienced from Fiddlershop convinced me to upgrade to a Soloist violin. The sales staff was helpful, friendly, just superb in every way. And this beauty arrived in perfect condition; it only required minor tuning and a bit of rosin on the bow. The Soloist sounds incredible and feels so comfortable. I upgraded the shoulder rest to a Bons Musica because it fits my broken collar bone nicely with its adjustability. I could not be happier with my decision to buy this instrument. Its sound is so clean and crisp that I can already discern an improvement in my playing is just a few days.

Fiddlerman Soloist

As usual I received excellent, very fast, pleasant service from Christine at the Fiddlershop. I enjoyed the videos byMichael and Pierre while I waited for my new violin to come. I have 4 other violins, a Scott Cao, a Ming Jiang Zhu and two Holstein Bench made violins. I decided on the 3/4 Soloist this time in a different size as the previous violins are 1/2 size. I wanted to see if I could get a little more sound from a violin. The Soloist did not disappoint my at all. Fitted with Amo strings, this little violin sounds as wonderful as the other violins and is quite beautiful. I am enjoying this fine instrument very much.

Soloist violin

My buying experience was fantastic! From the first phone call I made to Fiddlerman's store, I was greeted with friendly and knowledgeable staff who helped me. They immediately offered to do a youtube comparison video of 3 instruments I was looking at on their website so I could make my final decision. The Soloist model is wonderful and with Pirastro Obligato strings, it has a warm and beautiful tone. I could not be more pleased with the level of service and care I received! Shout out to Christina for all of her help!! Kind regards, Tara McCoy
