Punches above its weight

As an adult beginner, I wasn't sure if should go the route of multiple upgrades as so many repeat Fiddlershop customers have done or go straight to my "forever instrument". I must have tried a dozen violins in the $1,500 - $8,000 range. When I got to the Sima Traian, my decision was made. The sound is clear and mellow and the overtones are not only gorgeous but also of precious help in training my ear and intonation. Aesthetically, it's a pleasure to hold and behold. The finish is subtle and let's the quality of the wood glow without overdone antique effects. I've played it for about 80 hours at this point and the sound, which I loved originally, is now scrumptiously open. Pierre and Felix, Fiddlershop's master luthier, worked with me on some adjustments to accommodate my smallish hands. Primarily, the nut was widened and the neck was slimmed down so that the violin plays almost like a 7/8 size. Bridge and sound post adjustments were made accordingly. Thank you, Fiddlershop!

Great Violin!

After trading up a few times, I landed on the Sima Triain violin. It is a wonderful instrument with a full sound and wonderful workmanship. It has gotten a lot of hours of playing time and continues to please. It is very well worth the price and will remain among my instruments..no more trades for me! Thank you Pierre for suggesting it.

Last Violin I Will Ever Need!

After several upgrades through Fiddlershop (all of which were great violins), I decided to go for it and get the violin I had been wanting from the beginning. The Sima Traian violin was a wonderful violin from the get go, but then I put Pirastro Gold strings on it and WOW it really came alive! It resonates tremendously in the lower strings and just soars in the upper strings! It is so smooth and easy to play. It has great projection without being harsh or obnoxious, just crystal clear, beautiful tones! When I ordered this violin I had Fiddlershop also install the Perfection Planetary fine tuner pegs. I love these pegs! They make tuning a breeze. Overall, I could not be happier with my Sima Traian violin! If you are on the fence about this violin, just go for it - you won't regret it - it will be the last violin you ever need!

Best purchase I ever made

I looked high and low for an upgrade violin, and was not happy with any of their tones. I found this one, and adored it for a long time. When I was finally able to purchase it I debated between this and another one, and I'm really really glad I went with Sima Traian's violin. It's beautiful, sounds gorgeous, and is now my forever violin. Fiddlershop was very helpful, and made ordering a breeze. If you are thinking about buying this violin, go for it.
