Product Description

Size: 3/4

You’ve seen this finish before on fine, old violins costing thousands of dollars and often in the hands of professional players or collectors. And until now, an instrument of this look and quality has never been available at such an affordable price point! The SV-225 3/4 is a fully hand carved violin made of select spruce and flamed maple, shaded in a beautiful antique finish. Each instrument comes as an outfit with a high-quality, J. La Salle bow and a Superior hard-shell case for optimal protection.

A great student violin.

I wanted a decent quality, student violin for 200-300 dollars, that would serve me without frustration until and if I get good enough to upgrade.

Well, I ordered the Cremona SV-225 violin on Sept. 16th, and I received it on the 18th and am looking at the tuned instrument as I write this. I bought this brand and model based on numerous written and video reviews over the last month or so. I wanted a decent quality, student violin for 200-300 dollars, that would serve me without frustration until and if I get good enough to upgrade. The Cremona cost me $206.00 shipped. I am not a violinist (YET), my instrument of choice to this point being the piano. But, that said, I do know quality when I see it, and when I hear it.

The violin came UPS, adequately packed in a large and undamaged box. (No offense, UPS, but this has to be a first...) Under the paper packing was a light but substantial hard shell case. Inside was the violin and bow, a compartment containing rosin and a shoulder strap for the case, and the violin bridge, wrapped in foam and stuck under the tailpiece. The case had a built-in hygrometer for humidity that actually seemed to read accurately. So far, so good.

I soon discovered that this is really a very nice violin, on many levels. In appearance, it is stained a pleasing reddish brown, with a satin varnish that does not easily show fingerprints. The spruce top is very tight grained, and appears to be one piece. The back is two piece maple with a very attractive and visible flame pattern. The neck/peg box/scroll also have a nice pattern and compliment the instrument. The pegs, chin rest, end button and the bow frog are all apparently ebony of decent quality, and the tailpiece with its 4 fine tuners seems to be some sort of composite plastic. The f-holes are cleanly cut.

Time to install the bridge. There are no instructions, but there are a million websites showing this.

I decided to buy this fiddle for my beguinner little daughter. so I didn't know what to choose: cremona, palatino, vif, stagg and others.My choice was cremona because of many reviews I saw.Ok now I can feedback and:1) the violin is beautiful,great antique finish.2)the case worths a lot by itself.really elegant and nice outfit. 3)the strings are terrible. this is the point the cremona makers should pay attention to. the only strings sound is the worst i've ever heard in a violin. I noticed the strings are too tigth and hard to press. 4) Every customer can fix that point buying a brand new set of fine strings like pirastro or d'addario.(violin players must send your outfits to adjust the bridge with some luthier. i'ts absolutly necessary. believe me) 5) I recommend this violin for beguinners but gotta take my points. 6) deliverying was rigth at the time. not before not after.6) the bow that i received is just a piece of wood. hair does not adjust. i'm sending it back. Ok I hope my review really helps for some of you. good luck.

My level of experience: I played violin when I was a little kid and I would have been close to the advanced beginner/entry-level intermediate stage, and I wanted to get back and see how I would do as an adult.

I bought this after visiting local stores who tried to intimidate you by saying, "You will get glued wood blocks online!", and showing entry level violins that at-least cost half a grand. Well, yes, I'm sure I got one, but, the good thing is, it actually played like a violin. Decent sound, something for you to try out before you decide to get serious. To make things clear, this is definitely an entry-level violin, so, don't expect magic out of it. There are going to be rough edges, but this is a nice price point at which you can get started and see if you get enough interest to continue.

The bad:
Stock strings are really *bad*. I broke my E string while attempting to set it up, and then my A string got unwound near the groove (it could also be my fault). Either way, it does seem like the strings don't sound good. I would suggest upgrading to a nicer set of strings.
Bridge cut may not be perfect. But then, you can always replace it after a while.
Pegs could be a little problem; just push it in while tightening and it should hold up.

At this price level, you can expect some quality control issues, so YMMV may vary.

P.S: When you get your instrument, attempt to make sure it has all required parts (i.e., I got shipped one without a sound-post from a different retailer).

I recently bought this violin for my daughter to start her violin lessons.
Its a nice violin that has a pretty rich sound for a student model. Even her instructor was impressed as she says that the SV225 is much better than the ones they rent or sell at the music school.

My daughter is 9, so we went with the 3/4 size and so far, we have been pleased with the decent quality for the low price. All these sub $500 violins are mass produced in China so thats what makes them affordable. However, Saga Music did a pretty good job with their premier student line and I have to say that it is a fine instrument for the audience it was intended for. There is a hydrogmeter to measure the humidity. Not sure how useful it will be since we are not moving or buying a humidor for the violin but neverless, the case has one.

The case is decent. Its not as strong as a fiberglass case but it will do the job.
Good job Saga. We will buy another violin when she is ready for a full size one granted she is still playing by then.
