Reviews around beginner (4.64 of 5)

  • It is completely dead on the a string, the e is just a screech
  • It is completely dead on the a string, the e is just a screech
  • Too the beginners, the issues with the sound are so insignificant that I cannot pick them up when I play
  • But for that price you get a really great beginner's violin
  • Great beginner violin, except it was really hard to tune and keep tuned.

Reviews around starter (4.14 of 5)

  • You could get a good enough starter violin for $300-500 from a music store.
  • 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
  • Until then... this violin is perfect for her and a great starter violin for the cost
  • Overall, this is a good, cheap starter violin and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning the violin.

Reviews around price (3.89 of 5)

  • He loves it and for a starting violin it's a great price.
  • 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.
  • While probably considered worth it for the cheap price, the 'promise of examination' that came with this product is ill received.
  • 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,
  • Anyone looking to get a violin for a cheap price.... Should save a couple hundred dollars first

Reviews around tuner (3.67 of 5)

  • Our violin will not tune at all, the tuners do not work.
  • The fine tuners on the tailpiece will quickly break if you use them
  • and I have to readjust them, as well as the fine tuners, pretty much
  • 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.
  • As a music teacher, I highly discourage purchasing this instrument
  • Again, I understand this is a cheap instrument, but that really is unacceptable
  • If you are looking for a violin as a prop, this is very realistic looking, but it does not work as an instrument.
  • But for the price with a little work it is a great instrument.

Reviews around money (3.26 of 5)

  • 0 stars actually ...not an actual instrument, please don't waste your money

Reviews around string (2.03 of 5)

  • 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.
  • It is common for strings to break on instruments but this time I was barely tightening the string and it broke
  • the bow and all the accessories were good quality and the extra strings were definitely a bonus
  • It has good sound for the price, but I would suggest immediately investing in better strings.
  • The strings are always coming loose and my daughter can't tune the violin.

Reviews around day (1.87 of 5)

  • 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

  • my violin is soo nice and beautiful, arrived as expected and very well packaged, Im so happy practicing it every day, thank you

Reviews around bridge (1.79 of 5)

  • The fine tuners and bridge were installed, the sound post wasn’t rattling around
  • The bridge and E string fell off during the shipping but my daughter put them back in easily
  • 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.
  • I took it to two different professionals to tune, and wasted over $100 to hear from both:The bridge is not correct, so the "A" cord will not play, the pegs won't actually stay tight, so the strings won't stay in tune.
  • The bridge had fallen and something seemed off with the strings

Reviews around bite (1.74 of 5)

  • 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
  • It is a bit tricky to tune initially, but once you get the hang of tuning it, it is much faster.
  • The shoulder rest is also plastic and the pad is a bit hard but not uncomfortable
  • 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.
  • Strings slip (rosin works a bit, but tuning it, finding the note and then tapping it with the end of a hairbrush sets it

Reviews around peg (1.71 of 5)

  • The pegs are worthless and wouldn't stay taut, which means the violin couldn't 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
  • The pegs are so smooth that it's impossible to keep it in tune.
  • I could have replaced them with good pegs for nearly as much as this violin cost.
  • Overall nice violin for price, I just wish that the pegs could be nicer, and the neck to be painted the color I ordered
