One thing I learned recently is that the more you play an instrument, the more it comes alive. Something to do with the sound vibrations somehow "seasoning" the wood, or something. After two weeks of solid practicing, this thing really started to open up. So much so, in fact, that my teacher even commented on it as he was tuning it up before one of my lessons several weeks ago. And then I began to hear it. It went from sounding tinny and squeaky to producing this warm, lovely tone that doesn't seem plausible given its price point, to say nothing of its origin.
One thing though--ditch the bows. The ones that came with mine are terribly warped and the hair is strung at all different angles, not straight and parallel like it should be. I grabbed a perfectly good $30 bow from ADM (http://amzn.com/B00DW12HR8) and it upped my game almost immediately. Beware that you will need to rosen the crap out of it (as you would with any new bow) until it gets a nice buildup. But once it does, and if you commit to playing this violin nightly for several weeks, you will be surprised at just how good it can sound.
Additionally you may want to pick up a better shoulder rest as the one that comes with it was inadequate for me. I got one at a local music shop for $20. But the case is very nice and light, with thick foam padding inside a soft fabric shell, and it comes with an extra bridge and strings.
Thank You Amazon for my Wonderful Violin!!!
I don't believe I could have been more excited to receive it after playing my nephew's viola over christmas. With everything this package comes with you cannot go wrong.
I was worried it wouldn't stay in tune but it is. And make sure you go to town with the rosin to make sure the bow actually works. Most people buying this are new to bowed instruments and don't realize you need to cake on the rosin to make sound.
Just scratch the smooth surface of the rosin with a knife or scissors to activate it.
patience and have fun!
