My violin came in on time and when I looked in the case I was in awe of the instrument. The quality materials and varnish made a look that was much nicer than my first student violin. Upon playing I noticed that the sound is much richer and fuller than my old instrument. I absolutely love the sound and the items that came with are very helpful also! Will be buying from Fiddlershop in the future! (when I can afford a $1000+ violin!)
My daughter is 13, plays the viola and has a very strong ear. I bought the electric violin for her to play the higher range of what she hears. First day, 6 hours of fun with her loop pedal!! Awesome thank you!
I have been playing fiddle for over 50 years and have had several fiddles over that time. I play mostly "Country & Western" so I need a fiddle that can handle everything from hoedowns and square dancing indoors to rugged outdoor campfires. I recently purchased my Tower Strings Acoustic Electric fiddle in hopes that it could handle the riggers of what I put it through, and I have been pleasantly surprised at the solid workmanship of this violin. It has a very solid sound both acoustically and when amplified though my FIshman Amp. I was particularly impressed with the two 1/4 inch jack outputs giving you the option of a left or a right output. The violin came in a sturdy lightweight case and included rosin, shoulder pad, tuner, shoulder pad and cable. On top of all these accessories the violin itself came all set up with the bridge and strings all in place and ready to play. The tuning pegs were free and easy to maneuver and the four built-in tuning pegs are a great touch. The one thing I wanted on a violin was an ebony finger board for longer lasting playing which this violin has. I had the privilege of speaking with Fiddlerman by phone prior to my purchasing this instrument and he assured me that my satisfaction would be guaranteed. And I have to say I am 100% satisfied with my purchase of this violin. So thank you Fiddlerman and the entire Fiddlershop gang for creating this beautiful instrument that I plan on "fiddling around" with for many years to come.
This violin has been an excellent violin that can grow with me as a and adult beginner. I have wanted to play violin all my life, and decided I would make the commitment to learning to play this year. Being an adult beginner, I had read that purchasing a quality student violin was a big deal because it might I influence if I stick with playing. The violin case completely ready to play with every essential item I would need to begin—it was even in-tune. Thank you to Fiddlershop for their amazing customer service, and helping me start a lifelong goal! You guys rock!
I played the violin for 3-5 years about a decade ago. My wife picked this package up for me several weeks ago and it has been a pleasure to play. It stays tuned and has a warm sound which projects, with and without amplification. I would highly recommend this product.
