Reviews around spot (5.00 of 5)

  • The sound post was not in the right spot - it was under E string instead of under A string - it could have been too long or got shifted during shipment, which is common
  • He recommended a few changes: 1. to replace the sound post that is too long and not in the right spot, 2. to change the steel strings that came with the violin with Dominant strings, 3. to cut a new bridge, the current one is too thick and too low (a thick bridge would dampen the sound)
  • The soundpost is in the right spot, the bridge was fine, the pegs are okay a little bit slippery but peg drops can fix that, the strings I would recommend changing

  • The bridge looks great as well; however, it was not line up with the notch of f holes, again, it could have been shifted like the sound post

  • I got a separate shoulder rest (Wolf Forte Secondo) and that works great.

Reviews around book (5.00 of 5)

  • The book is the least useful for me since it was all text, no pictures, and watching lessons on YouTube is much better.

Reviews around sound (3.22 of 5)

  • I liked the sound the CVN 500 made....clear and warm sounds resonated from the instrument.
  • After I had the luthier cut a new sound post the sound of all strings improved greatly, my A and E string sound a lot stronger/louder than before
  • Some say you should change the strings, which I can imagine may improve the sound, but I think I will do that when I am doing more than what I do now trying to accustom my hands and fingers tot he positions on the fingerboard and movement with the bow
