Reviews around starter (4.14 of 5)

  • You get what you pay for and a s cheap starter violin should be from around $350-500 dollars at least.
  • I think this is a great starter violin to check out interest before you shell out the big bucks
  • You could get a good enough starter violin for $300-500 from a music store.
  • I've wanted to learn to play the Violin for half a decade now, and this seemed like a good starter
  • Case so cheap the zipper even broke as I was unzipping it.

Reviews around price (3.89 of 5)

  • 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.
  • Anyone looking to get a violin for a cheap price.... Should save a couple hundred dollars first
  • 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
  • For my first violin I think it's a great price, esp. if I find out the violin is not somethings that I'm going to continue to play.

Reviews around instrument (3.58 of 5)

  • For the price it is a very good quality instrument and the case is nice
  • 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.
  • For the price you pay, this is a great little beginner instrument
  • All in all great quality from an inexpensive instrument
  • As a music teacher, I highly discourage purchasing this instrument

Reviews around bite (1.74 of 5)

  • It is a bit tricky to tune initially, but once you get the hang of tuning it, it is much faster.
  • 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.
  • The shoulder rest is also plastic and the pad is a bit hard but not uncomfortable
  • It's a bit challenging and tricky to tune if you're a new player
  • 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

Reviews around peg (1.71 of 5)

  • but then the pegs got loose all the time and the violin wouldn't stay tuned well
  • The pegs come loose and make the instrument difficult to tune as well as it staying in tune
  • The pegs are loose and one will have to push them in really hard while tuning to make sure it stays in tune.
  • I am a beginner, and this violin's quality is perfect, easy to tune just need to have extra patience when tuning because the pegs are very sensitive and so is the strings
  • I could have replaced them with good pegs for nearly as much as this violin cost.
