Scott Cao 850 Review

The Cannon, Kreisler, Ex-David, Soil, Scarampella and replicas are commonly stocked - all other replicas are custom order and may take up to 6 months.

These replicas are one-piece backs (and $180 more): Cremonese, King Joseph, Lord Wilton, and Ysaye

The 850s are the finest models made in the Guangzhou Workshop. They use first grade Italian spruce and 10-year aged Bosnian maple. The fittings are boxwood and fingerboards are Indian ebony. These models are among the top brands of violins recommended by “Strings” magazine. As described by "Strings" magazine; "The 850E is ranked among the top quality violins, not only because of its craftsmanship, but because of its varnish”. The 850 violins have a rich tonal quality and amazing projection. In terms of affordability and quality, the 850 is an absolute winner compared to similarly priced instruments.

All models of Scott Cao Violins are professionally set up/tested/adjusted and ready to play. We offer all Replicas listed in the drop down menu, but it all depends on the availability with Scott Cao, and some orders might have to be custom ordered.
.

This is my

This is my 3rd violin that I've purchased from Fiddlerman. After I got my Ming....I still wanted a Cao as well. Mike as usual was great at answering any and all questions. Their service remains fantastic! I would say this Cao is more suited for a fiddler or in my case a mariachi. For me the Cao projects and seems tougher as well too. I put Violino Pirastro strings which suited my needs best. I am truly impressed with how much it can project inspite of the fact it is new. I was a strong believer that nothing could come from a Chinese violin maker. Obiviously after my purchase of my Ming and now my Cao. I recommend you give these a try. Ming is both sophisticated and loud...my Cao is power and I say it has a bit of a dark side. This is new to me as I always went for a bright sound but I enjoy this new sound.

A very good choice

The Scott Cao 850 Kreisler is an excellent instrument in sound, construction and appearance. The tone is strong but not harsh and the finish is pleasing but not overly antiqued. I'm still getting acquainted with it so I expect to find it more enjoyable as time goes on. Thanks Fiddlerman!

Really nice tone and packaged well

It came fairly quickly, it was packaged well with the case protecting the instrument, and the instrument was ready to play. Overall, this violin had a really nice tone compared to my old instrument.

Scott Cao 850 Violin

Scott Cao 850 Violin - I received the instrument in immaculate condition with all shipping precautions possible. Great job, and a pleasure to deal with Fiddlershop.com. The violin sounds as expected for well constructed copy of Il Cannone Guarnerius of 1743 an origional violin fabricated by the Italian luthier Giuseppe Antonio Guarneri of Cremona (1698–1744). The sound is equally full and pleasant on all 4 strings. The instrument is build of quality selected materials with European origin, and sounded just right out of the shipping box without the need for any additional adjustments. The sound post and the bridge were in the perfect place possible, and the Dominant strings it came with sounded very deep and mellow. Prior to the purchase, I received a comparison video between 2 violins, and this video clip definitely helped me to select this particulate violin. I am very pleased and satisfied with the knowledge, and extra care provided by the Fiddlershop personnel, who are very responsible and responsive, great pleasure dealing with them. I would highly recommend the Fiddlershop.com to anybody who wants to have an honest opinion, great variety of instruments and accessories, and just dealing with wonderful and very warm people. Sincerely, Emmanuel Berkovitch professional violinist, July 2020.
