Reviews around starter (4.14 of 5)

  • I've wanted to learn to play the Violin for half a decade now, and this seemed like a good starter
  • Instrument is perfect, if you first get it and you find that innattempt to tuning it that the pegs don't turn they just go back, you have to push the pegs into the holes as hard as you can
  • You get what you pay for and a s cheap starter violin should be from around $350-500 dollars at least.
  • , It’s a little cheap looking and the pegs don’t stay (loses the tuning quickly), but for someone who’s new to this, it’s not a bad starter
  • Until then... this violin is perfect for her and a great starter violin for the cost

Reviews around sound (4.06 of 5)

  • The sound and quality are great for the price (you can always invest in a better instrument once you get good)
  • Surprisingly good sound from this violin, very well built
  • But this is a great bargain for a real violin with great sound.
  • After having this violin for a while i realize that is has the worst sound possible compared to other violins i have seen and played
  • The sound isn't terrible but it can be hard to keep in tune.

Reviews around price (3.89 of 5)

  • What a great violin and what a price, I'm really happy with my
  • I know the cheap price is tempting especially with all the accessories (which by the way, only came with one e string, not the multiple replacements as strings
  • This is a beautiful violin and quite amazing beginner violin for a cheap price
  • It's great, considering the price, it's cheap in price but really good in quality, the only thing I had troubles was tunning it,
  • While probably considered worth it for the cheap price, the 'promise of examination' that came with this product is ill received.

Reviews around tuner (3.67 of 5)

  • and I have to readjust them, as well as the fine tuners, pretty much
  • You will still need to get everything adjusted (bridge, pegs, fine tuners)
  • The fine tuners on the tailpiece will quickly break if you use them
  • The fine tuners on the tailpiece will quickly break if you use them
  • My biggest complaint is that the fine tuners are TERRIBLE on all of their violins

Reviews around instrument (3.58 of 5)

  • I'm convinced that most of the people who have had a very difficult time with this instrument are either 1) are used to playing much more expensive instruments and bound by elite tastes, or 2) are too inexperienced with stringed instruments to setup the violin correctly.
  • All in all great quality from an inexpensive instrument
  • Being a violinist for 20 years and a string instrument technician, these ceclio or mendini instruments are awful
  • For the price it is a very good quality instrument and the case is nice
  • As a music teacher, I highly discourage purchasing this instrument

  • you should have no problem getting your money back buy putting it up for sale

Reviews around rosin (2.43 of 5)

  • my rosin was busted into a bunch of pieces and my bow already had some broken hairs on it
  • I would recommend getting better strings and a better rosin.
  • But get a better rosin for it other then that it a great violin.
  • Bought it a bit used, when I got it the rosin was in pieces and the G string was broken
  • The Rosin is okay given the price of the violin, but I would suggest that you get a better quality rosin because it will make the sound better and you won't have to work so hard with the bow

Reviews around bow (2.09 of 5)

  • Only problem is when we received it the bow was too loose and we had to tighten the strings.
  • Strings broke off of the violin and the bow the second I grabbed it
  • I think with a better bow and a nice set of strings, this violin would sound even better.
  • The violin is nice but the bow sucks it broke on the second day of use
  • I did put some good strings on this violin almost out of the box, and she's got a nice bow, so the quality of the sound is actually really good.

Reviews around string (2.03 of 5)

  • The strings were so loose, I practically could have braided the strings
  • It is common for strings to break on instruments but this time I was barely tightening the string and it broke
  • The rosin that came with it worked great, should rest is good quality and the original strings have worked well the bow is good quality all for the price
  • The bow was crooked, and strings are loose, cannot stay in place
  • It has good sound for the price, but I would suggest immediately investing in better strings.

  • You might get something playable but you might get something that ruins a
  • while day one was frustrating due to tuning problems, every day since I feel as if I had it for far longer for some reason)
  • On the first violin, it took a couple days until the glue failed and the neck separated, and the second violin came separated from the back of the violin.

Reviews around bridge (1.79 of 5)

  • When I tried to tune it, the bridge, which is held in place by the strings, fell off and had to be put back, which was no big deal.
  • The bridge is not cut well, which makes the instrument almost impossible to stay in tune and the string heights are not correct.
  • The bridge and the strings are bad and I need to buy another
  • Unlike videos critiquing the violin’s flaws, the instrument I received had a decent bridge with the appropriate shape, the sound post was in the correct location, fingerboard, peg box, tuning pegs, and end button were all in working order with no issues
  • The bridge had fallen and something seemed off with the strings

Reviews around bite (1.74 of 5)

  • Strings slip (rosin works a bit, but tuning it, finding the note and then tapping it with the end of a hairbrush sets it
  • It was a little brighter and little bit of a hollower sound than the Mendini, basically, not as good, but playable and gave a different sound
  • Good instrument, as with any "cheaper" priced instrument the tuning is a bit hard to keep in tune but that's not a problem if you just tune up before each playing session.
  • I had to work the tuning pegs a bit and restring to get the violin to keep its tuning, but now it plays as well as a beginner violin might
  • It's a bit challenging and tricky to tune if you're a new player

Reviews around peg (1.71 of 5)

  • I could have replaced them with good pegs for nearly as much as this violin cost.
  • The violin teacher informed me that it will not hold a tune because the pegs fit to loose and will not hold the strings tight which allows the bridge to move while you play.
  • but then the pegs got loose all the time and the violin wouldn't stay tuned well
  • The pegs are worthless and wouldn't stay taut, which means the violin couldn't tune.
  • The pegs are so smooth that it's impossible to keep it in tune.
