The strings were loose and could not be tightened. Had to take it to a music shop to fix this. The bow was also very loosely strung and would not play on the violin. Tried to also get that fixed and had to buy a new bow. I would not purchase this again or recommend it. I got the yellow and it is very pretty but basically non-functional unless you just want to pluck the strings.
I don't much about violins. However, this did not come ready to be played. We had spend an additional $53 to put a bridge and get the strings fixed. My son's now seems to be happy with the instrument.
i had read many review before i placed my order. I had rented musical instruments in the past and weighed up the pro's and cons for buying and renting....but i decided to buy for what you are spending you are getting better than what you would expect, but then again you dont want to spend too much money on an instrument that a 5th grader is going to play...I will upgrade in the near future but for now very satisfied with my purchase and complaints, excellent value for what i spent. It does not mention in the description but it does come with resin.
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!
