My daughter loves her new violin ...
Thank you so much for your help and great customer service in keeping me updated on the status of my purchase. It sounds wonderful and I really appreciate you putting on the center mounted chin rest for me before shipping it to me so I did not have to worry about how tightly to screw it on. I am a little disappointed in the case as the large pocket inside the case does not close all the way do to the cut of the flap not matching the cut of the compartment. Nevertheless, it works as a case and holds my violin pickup, metronome, rosin, shoulder rest, highlighter, 2 pencils, hardware for my violin, and a extra piece that is ******* on to the stand to hold my violin and bow. I am equally as pleased with the bow as I am the violin. I play in my church choir and the whole congregation as well as the other choir members and of course myself are very pleased!!!! I will be doing business with you for my next upgrade as funds become available. Thank you all on the Fiddlershop team for such a wonderful experience and such great products.
In addition to the outstanding customer service in purchasing, this violin is fantastic. Our instructor couldn't believe that a new violin had such great sound and projection. In addition it's just downright pretty to boot. I did order the Fiddlerman carbon fiber now as well and she said that only made it better. I am very pleased with this purchase and hope my son has many years of joy from this instrument.
This instruments sounds as great as it looks. The Scott Cao line of instruments stands out among the rest for its craftsmanship, quality materials, reasonable prices, and most importantly, sonorous soaring sound.
Hi, the instrument arrived in excellent condition, everything is fine, again I am completely satisfied, thank you very much for the good treatment that your company gives us. thank you very much.
