Glasser Carbon Composite Violin

I was very pleased with my purchase. The ordering was easy, and I received the violin promptly. I am a professional violinist, and purchased this to replace my “rain fiddle,” which, sadly, suffered a terminal injury. I was very surprised at both the ease of playing, and the even and pleasant tone. It is a bit heavy, but it was not problematic. I was able to take a 3 day camping trip and still practice for my symphony performance which was 2 days after getting home. There was absolutely no problem packing this in our trailer, and leaving it there during the 100 degree days!

Yep, it’s a keeper.

I got my fiddle on the mail about three weeks ago, and didn’t want to write a review until I had some time to do some torture testing...I’m a 68 years old beginner, been playing for about a year, and was looking for an upgrade from my Gibson V50 that was handed down to me, so, here we go... The violin arrived, I took it out of the box/case, tuned up and played it for a half hour. Nice sound, easy to tune, played out of the box as advertised. Phase I complete. We live at 6500’ in the Sierra Nevada and the next phase was to see how a fiddle from Florida adapts to mountain life. I picked out a sunny spot against our house where I knew the shade would soon cover the spot. 36% humidity and hot enough to cause outer shirt removal. I practiced for twenty minutes till the shade over took the spot, put my shirt back on in the lower temperature, and played for twenty more, re-tuning four times, mostly the A and E. Then back in the house next to the wood buring stove for a bit. No problems,just had to re-tune. Phase II complete. Phase III was a trip to the lower desert toward Las Vegas. 6% humidity, 95 degrees and a trip down and home in the back of the truck with the gear. Had a blast playing all weekend, no worries. Complete. Sure, Strad and Amati and the like have now worries about this violin replacing them, but I wouldn’t treat them like I’ve kicked this one around. Wayne’s review about being a pole barn/shop fiddle is right on the money, now I can play anywhere...can’t wait till we get some snow! Phase IV! Thanks, Fiddlershop folks for a great product, and fantastic customer support, everything I’ve ordered has been shipped well, and works great. I’ll be another full time customer.

Great Carbon Composite Violin

I have been wanting a Carbon Fiber violin for quite a while to use when I am in iffy locations. No one wants to see their prize Violin soaked. I really liked the look of the Mezzo-Forte but I couldn't justify the cost for what I needed it for. So I took a bet on the Glasser and I am so glad that I did. It has a great sound with good projection. It is not overly bright. Something I was looking for. Because it is Carbon Composite I don't have to stop and adjust it as often when I am going from hot summer days to humid nights. I paired it with a Carbon Fiber bow and this has allowed me to spend more time playing and less time tuning and adjusting. Fiddlershop had it set up and ready to go so I was playing 5 minutes after I received it. I was so impressed with their service I turned around and bought two bows. I am also very pleased with those. I now find myself selecting the Glassier over my other violins because it is such a pleasure to play.

carbon fiber violin

The violin was a beautiful piece of work, however the difference in sound from a traditional violin, I couldn't adapt too. I returned it to the dealer and they were very nice and understanding about it. I will do business with them again !

It's a beautiful instrument with different sounds.

I have been using this violin for the past 2 months or so. I am a beginner violiner with about 6 months of experience, with some mandolin, guitar, and piano experience before the violin. Pros: Almost perfectly formed, that is, the violin is incomparably better pieced together than a wood violin. Everything feels machined or stamped. The carbon fiber weave is just as beautiful, but different, as wood. The micro tuner pegs make life so much easier. I didn't need fine tuners even on the E string. The violin is extremely stiff, that is, when adjusting string tension I need only to go through once. It's not affected by humidity or temperature, or direct sun for that matter. I don't even bother putting this in a case because it just doesn't care. Cons: The fingerboard on my G, D, and A strings is shined smooth, because plastic isn't as hard as wood. This worries me the most as the entire neck, fingerboard, and peg box is one piece. The A string is mostly dead compared to the other three strings. I noticed in my other three wood violins their A string also fades quicker, but in the CF the string feels dead. Probably the soundpost needs to be moved around until all the strings ring. Some miscellaneous things: The Larsen strings make the violin deep and quiet, but some cheap high tension Chinese strings made the violin bright and loud. The Fiddlershop strings sounded similar to the Larsens. I suspect this violin can use any strings because it's extremely stiff and hardly bends. I think soon wood violins are going to find it difficult to compete with CF violins, because CF violins can be made from molded and stamped pieces with great precision and consistency. The only thing that worries me is the fingerboard.
