The "Midnight" Violin Features
The Midnight violin is a great starter violin that anyone can afford! We opted to have an all-black version that is less expensive because the varnish time is considerably faster. It certainly helps that it's a darn cool-looking violin as well! We have never been happy with what the market had to offer in this price range. The set up, accessories, and quality of build is far above anything we have tested in this price range! The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box.
Every Tower Strings instrument will arrive to you ready to play out of the box. Great for Suzuki and NAfME students.

The Fiddlershop Family
Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and blowing away its competitors?
Fiddlerman himself tests and curates the violins and works directly with the maker to produce only the best. With over 40 years as a professional violinist of orchestras around the world, he knows what he's doing. We buy our violins directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you! Each Tower Strings violin goes through our 5-step setup process.
Overall I think this is a great first violin set. It come with essentially everything you will need to get started, although I personally didn't care for the shoulder rest included, but again, it's my preference. The violin is beautiful and plays well.
From the ordering to the shipping it was amazing! My parents baught this for an early chanukah gift, and my mom said the whole way from ordering they were getting updated! Plays amazing! Sound quality is phenomenal! Over all perfect cor the price!
We love Fiddlershop and have bought 3 violins from here. I bought the tower strings just for practice and lessons at home. The violin is fine for that purpose. The bow was not very good and thankfully we have an extra we can use. It serves the purpose intended, but is not something I would use to play in a higher level recital. We love the other violins we have for that purpose. My aunt told us about Pierre and his family and we are so glad. We are from Ohio and don't have options for quality violins here. If you need a quality violin they can truly help no matter what level playing ability.
I’ve finally got my new violin. I’m a beginner adult and I’m learning right now. It’s a nice violin, the black outfit is really nice and it’s lighter than my rental one which is a Menzel Chinese made. The bow is lighter too. The only thing is my e peg keeps on slipping. I’m a beginner at tuning so it might be the way on how I’m turning it if you have any advices, I appreciate it!
Hi Pauline! Thanks for your kind words! And yes, tuning can be a pain sometimes! The highest tension is on the E-string peg, therefor you need to push it in harder. I'm including a link to a great video regarding slipping pegs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw-uKKyVQNk If this isn't enough, please contact us again.
If "you get what you pay for," I feel like I cheated a little. Great little starter instrument that perhaps doesn't have QUITE as nice a sound as my $500 viola. Beautiful, too. I wasn't expecting tiny, subtle sparkles (not glitter, exactly, just points of light) in the black, but that makes perfect sense for the "Midnight". It looks like a starry sky. It was even very nearly in tune when it arrived. I've been playing with it for a week, no complaints at all.
