Why did you choose this product?
This is a good violin to learn on for the value. Ignore the people who complained about this instrument. They have no knowledge of musical instruments particularly of the violin. It is a difficult instrument to learn and takes years to master. As a noob, I sound horrible due to my technique. The only issue I had was tuning. The strings are brand new and need some time to stretch out before you can get a reliable sound. Overall its a good buy for what you get....

I understood from reading the reviews I'd have to buy a new bow and rosin. I was not anticipating the bow to come with already broken strings as though someone had already used it. My largest issues stems from the fact that it came quite loose and in trying to tighten it, the strings became dislodged and I'll need to take it to a music store. Fortunately, it turns out that this is the wrong size for my daughter so we are going to put off the added expense of fixing the violin so it actually plays.Read More

While I was teaching my violin student, the tail broke. I was able to fix it, but it is only good for beginners. She had it since 2010, and it has had quite a few problems. Please don't waste your money in this violin.Read More
I got it in the mail and was so excited. I am a beginner so this instrument is perfect, but was sad that the bridge was missing. I contacted customer service though and they sent out a new one ASAPRead More
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 sweeterRead More
The violin is perfectly fine, in the other posts, it is obvious that they do not know anything about orchestral instruments. of course the string will come unattached if shipped or if under stress from different temperatures. the bow isnt warped, you just have to adjust it, and why should you care more about the case than the object inside? its fine, i have one, it just required little assembly that others are too lazy to doRead More
Okay, the strings weren't good, but anybody would want to get the right strings for their style anyway, I bought "fiddle" strings for mine. The rosin was old, but duh it's overstock.com, not newly minted.com. The bow could easily be warped when you get it, mine wasn't, but that and the rosin is probably the first thing you should replace anyway, a better bow with high quality rosin, on better strings makes the entire instrument sound so much better, it's like a much higher cost instrument. People that expect such a low priced instrument to sound like a Stradivari original should think again, while looking at the price tag. Dollar for dollar, you get more than your money's worth. Of course some snooty violin teacher will tell you it's not too good, it isn't in the realm of violins, it's a basic beginner instrument. The changes needed like strings, bows and rosin will be needed on any lower end instrument, violin or otherwise. Think of it as an opportunity to tailor the instrument to the player, and their style. Any violin under a thousand dollars is going to have something or another to find fault with. The only question that need be answered is did you good value for what you paid. I'd have to say yes, and then some.Read More
I purchased this violin for my son, we had been renting a violin for a year until we found this Violin kit with everything he needed to continue playing all for less than the rental cost.Read More
This was a suprise for someone that wanted to take up the violin. Perfect for 1st timers!Read More
You get what you pay for! As I write this, my violin is in the music shop being repaired. This is the second violin we've tried. The first one was even in worse shape. The bridge we received isn't the correct size for the violin and the neck has a raised piece (that shouldn't be raised at all) that keeps the strings from laying as they should. We knew nothing about violins when we ordered this, but got "schooled" right away after we received both violins. Save yourself some heartache and don't buy one of these violins. Even for a beginner, they aren't worth it. The repair being done on our violin right now is going to cost as much as we paid for the violin itself here on Overstock. Even then, we're not guaranteed that the violin is going to have a long life. Not a great buying experience at all!Read More
Questions & Answers
for a gift
Hello, Do these violins come in different sizes, or just the 4/4 size? Thanks!
Hello JoeyDSax1, this specific one is only size. I attached below the link to some others that you might like. Please let us know if you have any further questions. http://www.overstock.com/Gifts-Flowers/Stringed-Instruments/3624/cat.html
Will this product be convenient for both right and left hand users?
Hi cooper41, I have found that most left handed violinists play right handed. Unfortunately, this violin was designed for right handed playing. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.
One more question. Does it arrive with strings?
This item will arrive with strings.
