Great company and product
I don’t normally write reviews, but I’m impressed with this company. I bought the 1/4 violin for my son, but it was too small for him. Fiddlershop let me return it and I bought him the 1/2 violin. The sound was a million times better than the one we were renting for his school class. I ended up buying the full size for myself. The package had everything we need to start learning the instrument and we’ve been having a blast. The strings come attached and tuned (might need minor adjusting after shipment), shoulder rest is comfortable, rosin was good, and the tuner comes with the battery. It’s a solid product.
New student violin
It was exactly what I ordered
Love this beautiful violin!
I was so excited when this beautiful violin arrived for my daughter! It is the most beautiful color and the sound is amazing. I upgraded the strings and bow and am very pleased with them. The case is lightweight and sturdy. My daughter loves wearing it as a backpack. She just had her first lesson and she is off to a great start!
I bought an inexpensive starter violin for my daughter ($250) not expecting too much at that price point. I’m happy to say I was super wrong! So there was plenty of gear in that package (case, bow, rosin, etc.) that other places could match. But the quality of the instrument was actually pretty great. I’ve built guitars, not fiddles, so while my experience is different I can recognize quality work. But the BIG surprise was that the violin was beautifully setup right out of the case. Bridge perfectly fitted. String action was right on target. All I did was put a little dope on a single tuning peg but that was totally nit picky. I did not, in a million years, expect them to pay that kind of attention to a 3/4 violin at this price point. I’ve already recommended them to a classmates parents. Well done Fiddlershop.
I purchased this outfit as a farewell gift to a high school student who had always wanted to learn the violin. It had to be delivered to her at church on Sunday, but I forgot to place my order until the immediately previous Sunday. I added a note to Fiddlershop explaining my situation, and somehow by the grace of God the outfit arrived on Friday--with two days to spare. Fiddlershop, thank you so much for accommodating my last-minute request!
