The "Rockstar" Violin Features
When most violins at this price are simply unimpressive, this violin is an absolute Rockstar! This violin is our answer to a starter violin that means business, if your business is cranking out face-melting fiddle solos!
The set up, accessories, and quality of build is far superior to anything we've tested in this price range! The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box (some tuning still required). So wether you are taking the show on the road, or simply practicing up for the big gig, the Rockstar violin makes you feel like a star.

Confession time. It's Christmas, and my 16 year old son wanted his own violin. I have another of the Fiddlershop's violins and it is addictive. I practice several times a day, making great progress, and somehow, I managed to break the winding on my g string. It's always the g string that causes your heart to break. Long story short, I keep breaking into the Christmas present, and this Rockstar is AMAZING!!! I try to be gentle, lol, but it handles like a new sports car. The sound is crisp and clear and the projection is wonderful. It has enough power to vibrate my face. IT VIBRATES MY FACE!!!! Christmas is just days away and I am hoping I have enough wrapping paper and will power to make it that long. Fiddlerman, wow, I can't wait to play something you consider to be top of the line when you sell violins like this for less than 200 dollars. Nothing but love for the Fiddlershop. Color me impressed.
I love it! However the hair on the Stick does not work when i go to play on strings of violin :(
Hello Stacy! We're happy to hear that you love the violin :) To answer your comment about the bow, the hair needs rosin on it to make a sound. Please let me know if we can help with explaining how this is done. Here's a good video showing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bwxJP-QIMU Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns!
This is just one more in my series of purchases from Fiddlershop and again I am delighted. Gave this one to a student as a gift. She loves it. Thanks again !!!
it was exactly as it was said. it was ready out of the box. i am looking forward to shopping more in the future
Best Beginner Violin
This is perhaps the best sounding and easiest to play starter violin that I have tried. Also beautiful looking. I am a professional violinist and public school music teacher.
