Glasser Carbon Composite Violin Review

Glasser Carbon Composite Outfit Review

Carbon Composite Body For Unmatched Durability

This Glasser carbon fiber violin features a revolutionary Carbon Composite body which is long-lasting, durable, lightweight and has a tonal quality which is rich and clear. The carbon fiber violin offers a high-performance, modern alternative to traditional wood instruments. The carbon fiber violin is an almost indestructible violin that is great for travel, outdoor performances and all those places where your instrument might get wet, overheated, knocked, bumped or scratched like lively sessions, bar gigs, dances, orchestra pits and outdoor shows. The Glasser carbon fiber violin is also very low maintenance, easy to play, and great value.

Best value out there for a Carbon Fiber violin

A great buy at 480 dollars, which comes with the geared pegs, strings, and a Despiau bridge. If you need a violin that you can take places without worrying about it, this is a perfect option. The sound is a little louder than my primary violin, and while it is a little shallower, low notes sound so good on this thing, and the high notes sound less tinny than my wooden violin. I like it, and especially for its price, this is a great buy.



I had looked at this glasser carbon fiber violin for 2 yrs . I reviewed every Youtube video I could find to get a feel of what it might sound like. After much going back and forth about purchasing this Violin I talked to a sales person at Fiddlershop and was reassured that if I didn't like it that I could return it. I absolutely love this violin. It is a bit heavier than wood but it so easy to tune and it really is a good buy at $480. I am very pleased that I made the purchase. I love the fact you don't have to worry about leaving it in car in cold or heat so much as a wood instrument.

Music Jam Violin

Unfortunately, Fiddler shop didn't have these available at the time I purchased mine. I have had this for a little over a year now and still love it as my go to music jam violin, as a matter of fact I hardly ever take out my other violins. The sound is great for any regular playing or music jamming. Sometimes my jams require electric (because lots of electric guitars to compete with) no problem. I have a realist pickup always attached and use it with a wireless system. I opted for the Realist pickup rather than purchasing the Glasser AC Violin. Since the Electric is built into the chin rest and tail piece, it doesn't give any options for changing chin rests, which I use a different style chin rest. Plus, the violin is already slightly heavier I don't want any additional weight other than the realist. One other thing I will mention though is that it is much lighter than the Electric violin I had and much more proportioned. Kudos, great violin don't hesitate if you do alot of outdoor gigs. The sound is great (not as vibrant as the wood, but not bad at all).

workshop fiddle

This is the fiddle I have been looking for the last, oh, 30 years or so ! I live down here in the swamps of North Carolina on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp, and humidity is King around here. I have fiddled for many years, I like to keep a fiddle in my pole barn (yes, that's a real thing) and play some in the evening. I bought this Glasser, with some hesitation, but I am impressed with the over all quality, set up and strings that make for a tough and very playable workshop fiddle. Keep up the good work Fiddlershop! W.R. Sanders

I'm impressed!

I had originally bought this violin thinking I could leave it at camp without worrying about humidity etc. but even though I have two other violins, this one is my current favorite! It's like butterscotch: It's so smooth and so sweet! It rings clear and true! I did switch to a fiddlerman carbon fiber bow though. And I'm using the Holstein premium rosin (amber?) Did I mention how well it stays in tune? Yep! Definitely glad I made the purchase, and no, I didn't leave it at camp, but travel it back and forth with me.
