Exactly What I Wanted

I recently played viola for the first time at a local music shop when I went to buy some guitar strings. They had a 15.5" model that was half price due to not coming with a bow or case and having been special ordered but not bought. Even at the lowered price, the additional cost of a bow and case would've put the price way above what I wanted to spend for a "let's try it out" viola. Being a fan of Fiddlershop's videos, I looked at several of their entry-level violas and decided on the Tower Strings Entertainer Viola because it was the only one in that price range that went through the Fiddlershop 5-point set-up, came with a full outfit and looked and sounded good in the video. I requested a viola with a darker, richer tone, and Clare assisted me every step of the way from pre-ordering to receipt of the viola, and what arrived was EXACTLY what I had hoped for. While the price point is similar to other entry-level violas, the Entertainer I received indeed has the darker, richer tone I had hoped for and the workmanship was comparable to the higher-priced ones I tried at the local music shop, and mine even has a much better tone than the ones I tried at the shop, The bow that came with the outfit seems to work fine, and I adjusted the eyelet in the frog to tighten up the hair a little so I can get the suggested pencil-width distance between the bow hair and stick when at the correct tightness; I may upgrade the bow at some point, but that's something I would do anyway as I progress in my playing. All in all, I am really pleased with my purchase, and have only positive things to say about my first experience as a Fiddlershop customer.

This is the second instrument I've purchased from Fiddlershop, but is my first viola. I wanted to try something with a deeper sound than the violin but didn't want to spend too much for a "trying it out" instrument. I'd been looking at violas in this price range elsewhere and was concerned I'd get a broken instrument or something with a poor setup. The latter part felt even more important than it usually would. Due to social distancing, visiting a luthier isn't as easy as it once was in my city. Luckily, I saw this model and that Fiddlershop would inspect and do the setup. It arrived on time and ready to play. It looks and sounds beautiful and the accessories are a nice addition. I'm still surprised I got something this great at this price. Will definitely continue to look to Fiddlershop for my violin/viola needs.

Almost Perfect

My new viola is beautiful and well made. My only issues are the rosin was completely broken up that came with it and some of the hairs on the bow were hanging off. Other than that I am satisfied with my purchase



So sorry to hear about the broken rosin! We are sending you a new rosin today. Regarding the bow hair. It's normal for a few hairs to come off in the beginning. This won't affect your playing.
