A good addition to the quiver
This is a totally serviceable fiddle, and a good value for the price. I’m not about to let go of my old wood violin, but this is a good choice when durability is more important than sound. As for the sound of this violin, it is totally playable, but lacks the warmth and depth of tone that a good wood violin has. The carbon seems to have a sort of thin sound on the high strings and a deep “thumpy” sound on the low strings. It is very resonate and the low strings really do like to get going with sympathetic vibrations, which can get kind of muddy for delicate tunes in standard tuning. However, those qualities also make it really fun for cross-tuned old-time fiddle tunes. The combination of the mechanical tuners and the resonate “thumpy” sound have made this my go-to fiddle for tunes in open tunings. When you also consider the durability of the instrument, it really does earn a place in the quiver for summer festivals where extremes of weather or whiskey might threaten a finer instrument.
My daughter loves her violin and it sounds wonderful!
Glasser carbo composite violin
Playing the violin for less than 4 months I speak as a newbie. I really love this violin ,the sound and the overall engineering that went into making this instrument.It is quite the value for the money.The weather is not a problem ,fragility not a problem weight not a problem.I am a believer that the musician not the instrument makes the music come alive so I am perhaps naive to knowing a high quality sound in more expensive instruments but so is the audience .So it is an absolute joy to have something this nice my friends and family enjoy hearing in an instrument that will far out last me in my lifetime.
Reliable and sounds nice
I got this violin to keep in my car trunk at all times as a backup, and for outdoor gigs. This is exactly what I wanted, a reliable sturdy violin, and it sounds better than I expected. I got the four string and put a Realist under-bridge pickup on it. Acoustically it sounds good but is fairly dark. Amplified through a good preamp (Baggs, Fishman) with EQ it sounds as good as any other good violin with a piezo pickup. First experience with geared tuners, they work great. Comes with really nice strings. The neck material is different than the body, it almost has a 3D printed feel. It works and looks fine, there's just something a little strange about the material, but I don't notice while playing. I'd like to know what it is, and maybe it's just me. Anyways, definitely a keeper. Hasn't let me down.
Spectacular experience, fast shipping, fiddle perfect!
