The Ricard Bunnel Violin G2 Outfit is the perfect all-in-one package for new players, young and old.
As one of our most popular student violins available in all sizes, the Ricard Bunnel G2 is far superior to any other instrument outfit offered at this cost.
The oil finish is a unique feature usually seen on more expensive violins. Student-level string instruments sold by other retailers at this cost are typically coated with a thick, glossy lacquer finish that hinders quality tone production. The Ricard Bunnel has an authentic, hand-rubbed oil finish. It not only looks more professional, but remains true to historical, tried-and-true standards of hand-crafted violin making. The finish, construction, fittings, and design of the Ricard Bunnel give this instrument a warmer and more projective sound than competing student violins at the same cost.
All Ricard Bunnel Violin Outfits now come with a complete package of accessories including a high quality shoulder rest, extra strings, and more at no additional cost!

- Beautiful satin-like finish. Striking. Honestly - it's gorgeous.
- Even if it's been sitting in an Amazon warehouse for who knows how long, it felt very well set up right away. The tuning pegs were almost perfectly flush with the peg box. You just don't see that on most Chinese factory violins. It required tuning but... yeah if you're not expecting that then you're expectations need some retooling.
- Most people aren't too concerned with the accessories but the clip-on tuner is great, and the shoulder rest... oh the shoulder rest. I had a cheap plastic shoulder rest for my other violins and this one is leaps and bounds better. No comparison. Frankly I'm surprised they include it in this outfit.
- The case. The typical violin shaped case doesn't have any space for your shoulder rest or your sheet music. This one does. I appreciate that.
- Someone had an off day when they carved out my right f-hole (see picture). It's a mess. What makes it worse is knowing someone at Kennedy Violins saw this (can't miss it) and went "eh... whatever". It doesn't affect the tone but man is it disappointing. My el-cheapo "C" violin at 1/4 the price is nearly flawless by comparison.
- Another reviewer posted a picture of a chin rest that dug into the violin and left a big dent. I haven't taken mine off, but it's blatantly obvious that the very same blemish exists on mine just by looking at how it's mounted and where the chin rest meets the body. Kennedy Violins says something to the effect of "they put the chin rest on before the varnish fully dries at this price point but hey it's ok, it won't affect the tone!". Right. It still looks bad and saying "our product is damaged/sometimes poorly made but it sounds great!" at this price-point is a cop out'ish way of justifying a factory blemish.
If you order a Kennedy Violins violin from Amazon without being able to visually inspect the instrument first, you're (evidently) rolling dice. All things considered a 4 star rating on Amazon is an "I like it" rating - and I do. It's warmer and "livelier" than my other two Chinese violins. Suppose I'll chalk the blemishes up as "character"? Blemishes aside, the instrument looks and sounds great.
Everything is great on the G2 and worth every penny when compared to the MV500.
The case is very nice and has ample space inside for chin rest and other paraphernalia.
To my ears, it has a richer tone than the MV500, the worksmanship is also a lot better.
To those looking at the MV500, my advice is if you can push spending a little more, go for the G2 and you wont be sorry.
However, the bow that came with it was crooked and the winding is loose but Kennedy Violin is sending me a replacement.
My daughter asked me to swap the chinrest from her old violin as the chinrest on the G2 is too high for her... and I was shocked to see that the chinrest has marred the finish if the violin. I am thinking of replacing it now. Please see pictures.
