Really nice all around!

I was skeptical of a carbon composite violin, but I do a lot of outdoor gigs for my Celtic music band and I was tired of worrying about my wood violin in the heat and humidity. Someone recommended this violin to me and I've been in love ever since-- I even use it in orchestra now. It has a great tone and looks amazing.

the future of violin

Fiddlershop was great to deal with, and I really like this instrument. compared to my wooden violin: It is a bit heavier, but the weight appears to be distributed away from the peg end - when I'm holding the instrument in position, I don't notice the weight. it is darker sounding (which I like). it is not as loud. plus/minus depending on the playing situation. the planetary geared tuning pegs had a learning curve, but work fine. in fact, I replaced the tailpiece as I find that I don't need the fine tuners (not a criticism of the stock tailpiece, as it seemed fine) I imagine that, after several improving iterations of this instrument, it will be difficult for wooden violins to compete at this price range. and for children' programs, seems like a no brainer.

Beautiful Instrument!

The pictures didn’t do the instrument justice. It is a bit heavier—not much at all, than your wooden instrument, but I rather LIKE the heaviness. Knowing I can leave it on the stand indefinite was a huge selling point to me. The sound isn’t bad at all. The bow that came with it seemed a bit larger than needed, but wasn’t bad. The case leaves something to be desired, as the zippers are not smooth and tend to get hung on the cloth. There’s no straps inside the case to secure the instrument. I would recommend the violin over and over again, but would recommend another case than the one it ships with. I would definitely recommend this instrument for frequent travels and jam sessions.

Do Not Compare Carbon Fiber With Wood.

The Glasser is a fine sounding fiddle in its own right. Your shop was prompt with shipping. I like the idea of providing videos of the fiddles being played. It helped me with my purchase decision.
