Good quality beginners instrument!
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely little violin outfit - arrived in good condition, with nice case and bow. Instrument is well made! Pegs are well fitted, bridge is fine, unlike some other outfits which all seem mismatched and takes a long time to sort out - having to file bridges down, etc - nightmare. This violin is great and it arrived so. With regards to the sound - can't fully comment as the player is so young that it is clearly difficult to tell - but it doesn't sounds overly tinny ! Quality of bow and hair on the bow also seems good enough.

Cons: Lack of tuning adjusters. These are difficult to find for a 1/32 size violin! I was informed when I asked after the instrument arrived that the shop cannot source these and/or an alternative instrument which will have them built into a tailpiece...surely somewhere will have them - I have seen them on 1/32 size violins before!

Great package for a beginner.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: We have purchased this violin in both 1/4 and now 1/2 size for our daughter. There's very little to criticise about this violin - everything is correctly proportioned and it offers outstanding value for money, especially since it comes with case, bow, chinrest and rosin. For a child, starting out, it's not obvious why you would need to spend more, with the one caveat below (you'll possibly want to replace the strings).

Cons: The 1/4 sized instrument came with some obscure Thomastik Infeld strings. These were absolutely fine and we never felt a need to change them. When we swapped for the 1/2 size it was strung with D'Addario Prelude strings and these were just awful. We struggled with them for a couple of months, to see if they would settle down, but they just needed constant re-tuning every time the violin was played. Eventually we gave up and swapped for a set of Dominants and that made all the difference. At this price one really can't complain, but perhaps a better choice of budget string is out there. The Dominants sound miles better and stay in tune as well.
