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
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.
this was the best buy i've made this year. the product came with everything you need which was amazing. it was wonderful to pick up a cello again after so many years and this product has exceeded my expectations.
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!
