We ordered this for our 6-year-old to start lessons and have been very pleased with it. Her instructor, who plays professionally for a metropolitan orchestra, has commented numerous times on its nice tone and was astonished when we told him it cost around $***. Let me point out, however, that he noted that the bridge would eventually need to be replaced because one of the strings is too far apart (this is not an expensive item and is easily switched out). It won't be an issue for us, he says, because our daughter will outgrow the violin by the time she is ready to practice that final string. Overall we are very happy with our purchase.
We bought this product from overstock, since our daughter was eager to play. The violin arrived, and at first it looked, and sounded great. However, after one day of playing, it would no longer stay in tune! The tuning dowels are loose, and stay that way. When you try to tighten the strings, they immediately untighten themselves before your eyes. Now we have to take this in to get looked at by a professional, to see if it can be helped. This violin now has been sitting in it's case for over a month because it is unplayable! Daughter is complaining for another violin, one that she can play. I wish now we had of bought locally, and invested a little more into a better product. This product is junk. Save your money, because mine went OUT the window on this instrument they claim is a violin. Very unsatisfied!!!

I did not want to have to rent or purchase a $*** violin until my daughter grew into a full size. Based on reviews I purchased this. It was humiliating, the instructor sent my daughter back to tell me the violin was not only inadequate, but was not even worthy of being called a violin. Part of me was mad that $&@#% was so arrogant , and thought maybe... I got what I paid for...but the piece she played on last year was half the price and only had to upgrade bow and bridge. That is what I was expecting here. Not the case, save your money and rent until they make it to full size.

I previously sent another violin to my grandson and it was not a quality product. Upon receiving the violin purchased from Overstock, my grandson was very pleased and my son and daughter-in-law had very positive comments to make. This violin is an excellent beginner musical instrument.

I would also like to ask for the brand on this item. And a response of "no brand listed" is not really a good customer service response. If no brand is listed in the database, please take the extra step to inquire further. I will be buying a violin this holiday season and your response will decide on where I make my purchase.shellnjigs on Dec 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
