How to choose violin sizes
Violins are available in 8 different sizes: 4/4 (also called full size), 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/16 and 1/32. Size 4/4 is the biggest and size 1/32 is the smallest. All adults, regardless of their size, use the size 4/4 violin.
To measure what size violin best suits you, you need to know the length between your neck and the middle of your left-hand palm (when your hand is fully extended and raised perpendicular to your body, just like holding a violin). Most of the teachers prefer students to use the length from the neck to the wrist for measurement instead of the neck to mid-palm approach. The violin size determined by the neck/wrist approach would be the size that is more comfortable for students to hold. The violin size determined by the neck/mid-palm approach would be the biggest size students should use. The following table lists the length of each violin size. Find your length using your preferred approach and use that to determine the size of violin to get.
If you have a teacher, you should ask for your teacher's recommendation. If you don't have a teacher, we would recommend using the neck/wrist approach for students not using full size; for students who are deciding whether to used size 3/4 or size 4/4, use the neck/mid-palm approach. This is because it is always better those students feeling comfortable holding and playing the violin. However, while deciding between size 3/4 and size 4/4, if neck/mid-palm approach allows for size 4/4, then buying a size 4/4 is more economical since you don't have to buy another bigger size violin later. This is completely based on economical consideration. You should still decide what best suits your need.

The violin case arrived safely and free of damage enclosed in a box of matching dimension as the case was, which was placed in a larger box with packing material for transport. Every bit of the instrument was in place, including the bridge!
Bow came tightened out of the box, not good and tension needs to be loosened whenever not in use. Used the supplied rosin after sanding the rosin lightly to prime it before applying to the bow. Applied pencil graphite to the slots in the nut and bridge. Pushed in the tuning pegs, loosened all the micro tuners so they were at the same level and SLOWLY applied tuning tension starting with the low G string, then going up to the lighter strings, stopping to allow the strings to stretch before stepping up the tuning. I took an hour to do this, and avoided busted strings and ensuring the bridge is at a 90 degree vertical when perfectly tuned.
The only caveat is the finish...the stain from the fingerboard comes off on your fingers, but that will go away with playing or rub it out with a light touch with a terry cloth. Seen a few drips of mahogany finish on the underside of the fingerboard (see pics). The finish is uneven in a few areas if you look hard enough, but not an issue at a $120 price point.
The angled TS 1/8" to 1/4" cord is your run of the mill Hosa brand. I would however secure the instrument cord 1/8" end of the cord to the violin with Velcro or similar out from the angled plug end with a little slack built into it in case it gets yanked potentially damaging the pre-amp unit.
The decal showing the battery polarity was correct on mine, but look a little closer at the goofy non-standard spring contacts to see the proper polarity printed the exposed circuit board for proper polarity before inserting the supplied 9-volt battery.
If the whole pre-amp unit should fail, I'd replace it with something like a KNA VV-1 Detachable Passive Piezo Pickup with a 1/4" output. That way you can get quality 1/4" instrument cable connectivity. Overall, very happy with this violin, and will take the advice from the experience of other reviewers that replaced the bridge bow and strings down the road. Until then, lotsa happy practice with my Cecilio 4/4 CEVN-2NA.
Some issues I had were the pegs coming loose and the finish of the violin. As long as the pegs are pushed all the way in, they shouldn't move. With this violin, the pegs move slightly when I play and go out of tune so I have to stop and re-tune. This hardly happens though. The other issue I had was the finishing touches on the violin. It seems that the violin was made in a rush since there are patches and a few splotches of white paint on the black fingerboard. Part of the scroll and the back of the fingerboard is very rough; I had to sand it to get it smooth.
- Good price
- Easy to set up
- Comes with everything you need to start
- Feels nice to play
- Sloppy details
- Low quality headphones
- Loose pegs
- It sounds good right of the box (with an amp or nice headphones, such as Bose)
- It looks cool?
- It’s fairly silent, when not connected to an amp. This is a great feature when your practicing and trying not to annoy people around you. I’d compare it to an “acoustic” violin being muted, times 2
- It’s stays in tune, as long as you put some rosen on the pegs, when you first get it. Helps to keep the pegs from slipping.
- it’s heavier than my “acoustic” violin or your “typical” violin 4/4 size
- It’s not fit for everyone’s exact finger size, you will need to practice on it for a few hours.
- The case seems cheap and flimsy. It doesn’t even fit sheet music! See pictures.
- The bow! It broke the day I received the product. It is poorly made! See pictures. Might be an isolated incident, but I doubt it.
- The headphones that come with it are a joke. Those went in the trash immediately.
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced electric violin to have fun with, this is for you. This should NOT be the first violin you have ever played, experience is required. I use a Fender 20 watt amp and it works great! Enjoy and happy playing!
I gave it 3 stars because of the flaws of the case and the fact that the bow broke the day I received it.
