So while a new case might be recommended, this is a great beginner's violin, fantastic for those just trying out in violin, and pretty decent for those that are on a tight budget, yet definitely want to play.
Cheap beginner violins are notorious for screeching--particularly on the E-string.
I was a little frustrated that the bridge and the fingerboard were not lined up properly when I received it, and I recommend upgrading the strings, but beyond that, it's a nice beginner's violin.
You are reading snippets from reviews of Stentor 4-String Violin (1500 4/4)
The bow has good quality but the rosin is cheap, however it works good for the bow; and the case is formidable, very good and solid, with a pocket for your shoulder rest
I have been playing violin for about 2 years now, and I believe that Stentor violins are okay for beginners, but when I got mine, there were a couple of problems with it; the G string was frayed, the quality of the strings, especially the E string, was not that good, and the bridge was not properly placed and it was not correctly shaped either
Ok, so I've seen a few reviews on here saying that there's poor peg quality and that they just slip back into place
I'm a little more observant of defects, but in any case, this violin's quality isn't reliable.
I live in a south american country and believe it or not, violins are as expensive as they get and they are not good quality, so I feel relieved and happy to have this thing with me everyday I self-teach myself
