After much research, we purchased the Louis Carpini G2 outfit for our 12-year-old daughter, Aviana Rose, who has been playing violin for 4 years now. It was a bit scary making a thoughtful purchase like this over the Internet, but after watching the many demo videos on the KennedyViolins.com website and being able to hear the different models as well as calling Kennedy Violins directly, we felt confident that their product would be as good as advertised -- and it is.! The people at Kennedy Violins were very patient as they answered our many questions which helped alleviate any apprehension we had in making this long distance purchase. The 45-day guarantee along with the lifetime 100% trade-in value sealed the deal. The product is excellent and the service is outstanding -- I highly recommend Kennedy Violins to musicians of all levels. Thank you for delivering what you promised.

We originally planned on ordering a cheaper violin to upgrade our daughter's true "student" violin and allow us to pass the "student" violin to a sibling. Her only request, not knowing a whole lot about violin options, was that the back be pretty. After beginning our research, we quickly came across this store and their youtube videos allowing the instruments to be heard in their best element. We quickly realized that this instrument would be much more appreciated and long-lasting due to its appearance (yes, it has a pretty back) and sound quality. We felt it had a rich warm sound. The violin seemed to be less squeaky and shallow in the higher notes and resonate more fully in the majority of notes. Honestly, whenever our daughter begins to practice, I find myself thinking, "Wow. That really IS a pretty sounding violin." and I smile because I know we had a hand in picking it and she will be pleased for a long time to come. This review would be remiss if I didn't mention that the service of this store is truly excellent; making it very easy to desire to be a repeat customer and to spread the goodwill so others will experience their service and great products firsthand.

My 9 year-old daughter has been playing a Luis Carpini G2 1/2-size for six months now and has had great complements on the quality and tone of this instrument from her instructors. One specific comment we received from her teacher was that it is difficult to find good quality scale-intruments like this one ( "scaled" meaning not full size). , I'm a semi-professional jazz guitarist, and though I violins aren't my expertise, I would say that this instrument has terrific, warm tone and the quality of the workmanship appears to be excellent. The violin holds it's tuning well and it's very attractive. To me it appears to be the same or better quality than the Carlos Lamberti Sonata that we had prior to this. On top of that, the kit includes a heavy-duty case and some extras, which we never got with past kits.

About my daughter, she is 9 years-old and has been playing since she was 4. I would describe her as an intermediate player, Suzuki book 4, an plays in the Sacramento Youth Symphony beginner orchestra. As a mucisian myself, I try to get her an istrument that is equal to or better than her playing; i don't want the instrument to hold her back.

FYI, Before going to Kennedy we had been buying and exchcanging instuments with with Shar Music or almost 5 years ( sizes 1/16 to 1/8) up until this violin. I mainly has issues with Shar's service and a recent change in their trade-in policy. Shar has good products, but of Kennedy adds personal touch to their service. I'm sure we will be getting our next one from Kennedy once my daughter grows out of this one.

I purchased the Louis Caprini G2 Outfit from Kennedy Violins. The violin is beautiful and has a great sound. I also ordered the KUN Collapsible Violin Shoulder Rest and Suzuki Violin Method Vol 1.
Kennedy is a great company to deal with. I am very satisfied.

I ordered Louis Carpini G2 violin (1/4 size) for my daughter who is 5,5 years old and has been playing for over a year and a half now.
First of all, the customer service at Kennedy Violins is exceptional! I communicated with these guys from Europe and they did everything and above what is expected of a respectable firm.
Especially Heather is nice and very helpful! (thank you H). All of them that work there are experts in their field and they do know what they are talking about. So, if you are a novice in violin business (like I am) they are the right address to talk to.

The violin is really a work of art and produces beautiful sound. The G string blows me away since this is really a small instrument and one does not expect such depth and sustain from the G string. I compare it to the previous violin (also 1/4 size) I owe and...there is no comparison! The old one produced a dull twang of a sound when struck by a finger (pizzicato) whilst Carpini produces beautifully deep sound and lots of projection. The E string does not shrill and whine but responds with clear and happy tones. When playing scales the whole instrument resonates and echoes with clean and clear sounds.
The pegs are superb as they stay and do not go out of tune.
Micro tuners are really responsive too. Just a half of circle left or right and the pitch changes.
I upgraded to Grade 2 Brazil wood bow and it is well balanced, strong and straight as an arrow. Joy to play with!

You should have seen the face of my little one when she played first notes on Carpini. Her facial expression alone tells me I have invested my money wisely.

The violin case is a story for itself. High quality workmanship. Attention to the detail. There is even built in humidity gauge. How cool is that!
