    • great little violin
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 1/4

      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.

    • Nice Violin

      Option: Size 3/4

      Nice quality violin for the beginner. My daughter played this for two years before she needed the full size violin. Definitely cheaper than renting!!

    • Student 1/2 Size Violin
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 1/2

      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.

    • Great Violin
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 4/4

      My daughter loves it....very light weight and easy for her to trek back and forth to school. She is 9 and just starting instrumental and her teacher seems to think it was an excellent choice. Over-all I would recommend this violin for first-time or beginners.

    • Not a bad starter
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 4/4

      I plan on purchasing a better one if I continue to play, but this is a great starter violin. I would highly recommend to those that aren't sure if they would keep it up. It sounds surprisingly good for being so cheap.

    • Great instrument
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 3/4

      Great instrument and a great price. 1st year or music lessons and worth the investment! Well constructed and the case is solid. has withstood nearly 2 years of use now and even played every day, looks new. Definitely recommend!

    • Unsatisfied!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 4/4

      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!!!

    • Surprising Quality!

    • Good Violin, Bad Tail Piece
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Size 4/4

      I am a violin teacher. I purchased it for my 10-year old daughter. Tone-wise, it's a very good violin for beginners at a very reasonable price. It came with a good bow and case. However, the adjuster screws on the tail piece are of poor quality. I could not adjust the tune with any of the fine adjuster screws; they appear stuck and are very hard to rotate. A simple examination by the seller would have revealed this defect; but it appears that was not done.

      Not the best quality, but for the price, this was perfect when my 10 year old decided to take up learning the violin. She played this for about 3 years before losing interest and we were able to resell it to another young child. The quality is very good for this purpose

      I bought this for my 7th grader for orchestra. She had finally grown out of her small violin from elementary school. Fast shipping and exactly as described. Her orchestra teacher said that it is a really good violin and the sound is great. Glad I settled on this particular violin
