I am a professional musician, music teacher and violin dealer. I had a problem getting beginner violins from my manufacturer in China, so I figured i would look at this Violin. First let me say that 98% of beginner violin selling in the USA for under $200.00 are Made in China. This one is no worse or better than factory violins retailing for over $150.00. Of course before I sell it to a student I change the strings and re fit the bridge. A decent set of strings costs me about $13.00 and a bridge about three dollars. You can learn how to fit a bridge on utube. So I have a total of 65$ in the instrument. I put it next to another mass produced best selling Violin from China retailing at $150.00 and it sounded better, but that is with new strings. This violin should get the beginner student through the first year of playing, then an upgraded violin would be in order, but so many people quit or just want some basic enjoyment that there is no need to spend $200. Slipping pegs can be secured by using blackboard chalk or peg drops. I have seen $2500.00 violins where the pegs slip. The purfling is painted on this violin not inlaid but at this level it does not matter. So you will get just what it is, a cheap playable violin for the first time player on a budget, but those who say it is pure junk do not know the beginner market. Think of your first car. I am ordering 12 more for my studio for beginner students. If I wanted I could sell these easily for $150.00 and sleep well, but I simply let my students use them at no cost until they purchase their own violin.

I'll be honest, I only ordered this violin because I was curious. I have been playing for twelve years and recently decided it might be fun to try a new violin instead of the one I've had since I was a teenager. I ordered a couple of cheapies with Christmas gift card money (yay for gift cards!) and honestly, of the three I got, this was the best.

Here's the scoop on this violin package:

- The Case.You'll get a rigid foam case. It's not very high quality, but it'll protect your instrument when stored around the house. It has a nice pocket, a zipper, and space for two bows. I won't complain about the case. None of this stuff is very high quality, but look at the price.

-Rosin. I like extra dark colophane rosin so I'll probably just throw this away, but that's just my preference. It's nice that it's here. I didn't try using it, but it looks like you'll have to score it a few times with a butter knife to get it going. This is normal.

-The Bow. There's nothing special about the bow. However, it does have enough hairs on it to actually use when you get it rosined. It works, it stays taut with the right curvature.

-Bridge. The bridge is ridiculously big, but at least they give it to you. I had to cut mine to size, but hey, it works. The bridge will not be shipped set up on the violin -- which is normal, so don't be shocked when you get it and there's no bridge. Set the bridge up as soon as you can, but don't be too upset. You'll see some little notches on your f-holes. You can pretty much just line the bridge up with those. The higher side of it (once you're done shaving it there should be a higher side) goes under the g-string.

-The violin. This is a cheaply made violin.

I listen to all the 'moaners' out there, some who profess to be 'professionals'. I bought one of these because I was curious. I've been playing for a short while, have much nicer violins. If you set this one up properly, it plays just fine. Certainly, its sound is restricted - its lacquered. Sure the wood is wierd looking, but tuned (and any violin pegs will slip if not handled correctly), it will hold a student just fine. I play because its fun to play, and I play this violin because its fun to play. You 'moaners' who are strung too tight need to relax and let those who can't afford to pay for a more expensive instrument have fun too. Stop wailing and start being a teacher. Help your students like you're supposed to. You stuck your snooty noses out there and this is to remind you that music is magic and there for everyone. If you want to learn to play violin, buy this violin (vso if you like) and welcome to the wonderful world of music. Tip - find a real teacher, and when you can afford $15-40 for strings, buy them. But play this violin as is for now. Best to you!

For only a 40 dollar total cost to me, **** is why I give this starter kit 4 stars. I recieved this completely intact, with an extra E string, rosen and bow, all in its case. It was strung up with the bridge set and the body peg in place. This product, goes for $100 to $200 all day long at your local music store. The case is worth $20 by itself, because it is a clothe outer semi-hard-on case. The case would be worth 40-60 if it where an alligator style case. Yes, it is a hard styrofoam formed shape in between the felt inner lining and the clothe outer shell. I think it would survive a Forty foot drop and save the violin, but it may not pass the 40 pounds dropped onto it test. The case does come with a bow and can hold and extra bow, snugged & safely. It is a an excellent glove fit inside this case that cradles the violin and has a sweet extra precaution velcro strap. The little secret inner compartment is perfect in holding, the extra E string and rosen block that was included, plus an extra set of strings (I had purchased from this same company) and a Korg CA-30 compact chromatic digital/analog-needle-style tuner, that goes for like 30 bucks in stores or at Amazon. The outer skin does have a large pocket for sheet music or a notebook. The unfinished part on the back of neck is, simply, where the Chinese factory holds the violin, as it is dunked into the varnish tank. If you watch all the available intro-to-violin videos on you tube, regarding everything from arm placement, scrathing the rosen properly and basic maintenance, you won't sound like some of these previuos belly achers. Thanks to the 2 teachers, who wrote down honest and informative reviews and the all intro videos I've watched, I am more than happy with the 40 dollars I shelled out.Read more ›
