My grand daughter loves her new violin. We couldn't have made a better product selection for her needs.

I took the viola to a repairman and he wanted more to repair the parts then it cost to purchase the instrument. I later donated this to father who had musician age children. He then donated it to a music school for first year musical training. I was advised to spend more for a higher end instrument. My child gave up after six months, so maybe it was a good deal, but I regret that it came apart at the strings.

it's not the greatest sounds instrument but it work for what we need it for. My daugther love it. She had to change some of the string. I would recommend this product. Over all it's is good for the price.

Instead of spending months trying to find a decent used violin at a flea market/thrift store, I spent the $50 or so on a new one. Every component on this violin is cheap, including: soundboard, back/sides,fingerboard, and tuners. Bridge is decent. Tuners are of low quality and require a little persuasion to stay in turn (stick with fine tuners for most of your tuning). Got this violin as something for my kids to beat on when they grow up. If you get this violin for a beginner, learning will be more difficult. All that being said, however, this is a good buy. You are not going to find a cheaper price for an entire kit: violin, bow, rosin, and case. Is $50 worth all this frustration? The simple answer is yes. Beginners can practice on this for a couple years and then splurge on a several thousand dollar violin when they become competent. And because they've been playing on such poor quality, that high end model will feel and sound that much sweeter

Overall an excellent buy, 1/2 size violin for a 7 year old beginner. Tone is excellent after changing the original strings for Perlon core string set. Spent four hours fitting the bridge and pegs. Pegs were not fitted, and violin came with two unfitted bridges. Plan on spending some set up time or find someone that knows how to fit the instrument. Original chin rest (over the tail piece type) was way too tall for a 7 year old. Replaced chin rest with a shorter style (beside the tail piece type). Wooden bow that came with the set is acceptable for a student, with real horsehair. Case is foam core with zipper nylon shell and flocked interior; attractive enough, light weight, with back pack style shoulder straps on the bottom. Came with a plastic and rubber shoulder rest that fits acceptably. Sound post was properly positioned and violin body has good glue joints. Again, the tone after fitting and string replacement is excellent for a student violin.

i am happy with it and my 5 year loves learning to play on it.. My music place just likes to chaulk the strings so they stay in tune longer.. But it is great, love the case.. it is very neat..

The girls love them! How inexpensive to let them try it out to see if they will follow learning violin. Maybe had the string been intact and the rosin...my review would have been excellent.

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He plays gospel/bluegrass by ear and this violin far surpasses his old violin overall, especially for tone. We are loving this violin!

A student recently received this cello, and I have to say I was surprised by the quality for this price. I mean, it's not one I would recommend for an advanced student, but for your average public school orchestra student it will do just fine. The instrument itself seems to be of good quality, and sounds pretty decent. The pegs, while of good materials, are not drilled well - the string holes are too small for the standard replacement string I use - had to enlarge the hole in one already. I have found this to be pretty common in "cheap" instruments, not sure why. The bow is of pretty poor quality - I have seen enough of these bows to know that it will likely warp or break soon. Already the hair tension isn't right - the stick looks overtight even when the hair is only barely tight enough to use. When that happens I will recommend replacing instead of repairing. Last thing: don't follow the sizing listed here: "youth, teen, adult" is NOT an accurate assessment of the correct size instrument. Ask your teacher. With very few exceptions, even my middle school students all use full-size cellos. Overall, this cello is definitely playable, and most importantly is allowing this student to own her own cello when she would not otherwise have been able to do so due to cost.
