Reviews around tone (5.00 of 5)

  • I've seen lesser bows included with other instruments and can make it hard to get a good tone out of the instrument
  • This is a big plus because even a new violinist can appreciate a beautiful tone and it is very encouraging
  • The tone is also very good when you consider the price point of the instrument

Reviews around choice (5.00 of 5)

  • My daughter has dabbled with the violin for a year or two as a hobby, but not seriously enough to justify buying an expensive instrument, so this was a good choice for her at home practice
  • This MI-1006 Full Size Violin from Windsor is a surprisingly good quality, beginner violin for the price and a good choice for a new violin student
  • If you have a student that you think is really motivated, or musically gifted, and your budget allows, there are a few better choices for about double this price that sound a bit more rich and resonant that come with tuners and that stay in tune better
  • I think the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow is a great choice and very sturdy.

Reviews around sound (4.45 of 5)

  • The sound is what you'd expect for $20, not that great
  • I was very pleasantly surprised at the bright, full sound from this violin
  • This does have a very nice sound to it and for a beginner violin, it's very nice quality
  • It used to be that you have to pay a lot more for a student violin but the price has really come down and the instruments have a decent sound for learning.
  • The sound is actually surprisingly good and compares nicely to the loaner violin she had been using

Reviews around starter (4.26 of 5)

  • I ordered this for my 5-year old grandson, since he actually requested a violin for his birthday and thought it might be a good and cheap starter for him
  • Violin Including Case is a good starter violin that can be used to be sure the student has a real interest before making a much larger investment
  • I've also had several clumsy students prone to dropping their instrument, and I feel this is a decent starter violin if you can't afford to rent/have decent instrument insurance with a child that may not be exceedingly careful about taking care of a delicate instrument
  • Perfect starter for those who wanted to see if the violin was right for them
  • but I'm glad to have a nice starter violin to work with

Reviews around value (4.03 of 5)

  • Opened up the box and the bow was already warped as if it had been overtightened
  • daughter loved it - good value for the price as I wasn't expecting top of the line.
  • Bottom line is this is a great value for a beginner, to make sure someone is truly committed before spending more money on a higher quality instrument.
  • I think it is especially well suited for children because it is certainly as good as (or better than) a rental violin and in the long run, much less expensive without as much cost should your child damage or lose it.
  • The overall quality is decent for the price and is a good overall value for what you get

Reviews around tuner (3.86 of 5)

  • You should have a violin tuner on-hand or download a free tuner app if possible
  • The tuners won't hold any tension and just unwind after you put any tension on the strings.
  • If you buy this one, I do recommend a tuner, especially until these strings are stretched in well
  • Use the fine tuners to get the note down perfectly, but only after you let the strings rest and stretch a bit
  • The fine tuners were a bit wonky, but it was easy enough for me to tune the strings with the pegs

  • However the G and D pegs where a little messed up
  • daughter loved it - good value for the price as I wasn't expecting top of the line.
  • I think it is especially well suited for children because it is certainly as good as (or better than) a rental violin and in the long run, much less expensive without as much cost should your child damage or lose it.
  • My daughter loves hers, her Violin Teacher was also impressed with the quality for the price.

Reviews around instrument (3.16 of 5)

  • I hate having to point out price vs quality, but as far as beginner violins go, it's a pretty good instrument all things considered
  • Other than that, it has good sound, and for the price, it is a beautiful looking string instrument
  • I had no idea what to expect, other than a very inexpensive instrument that is hopefully not just a toy
  • This is definitely a beginner violin and as you become more accomplished, you will most certainly purchase a more expensive, higher quality instrument
  • It isn't a super impressive instrument, but you absolutely can play it and it sounds okay

Reviews around string (1.76 of 5)

  • If you try to get it perfect the first go round, you will break your strings and be a very unhappy future violinist
  • I even bought a book from the series I used in school - All for Strings: Comprehensive String Method, Book 2, and it doesn't feel any different taking 15 years off than the time I took 1 year off
  • We had little trouble tuning the violin for play using an app on our phone to insure each string was correct.
  • The bridge is not fitted for the instrument, so the strings fall a few millimeters too high from the fingerboard but it is definitely playable
  • I bought this as a practice violin and the shipment came and the violin itself had loose strings everywhere.

Reviews around bridge (1.44 of 5)

  • The bridge is missing and the rosin was cracked and all over everything in the violin case.
  • Mine came complete with strings, a bow, rosin, a decent case and the everso important bridge piece that I noticed had apparently not been included with many orders as I read the reviews for this product
  • the bridge was not properly set... and a few other issues
  • I got the bridge in place, upon tighting the third string with my barbarian hands I broke it
