About this book
The violin was first mentioned in a book in the sixteenth century. An abundant and diverse literature on the instrument has grown since then, and a complete general guide to these materials has not been produced in the modern era. The last, Edward Heron-Allen'sDeFidiculis Bibliographia, was published in1894. This book fills that void, organizing and annotating information on the violin from a variety of fields and sources. It provides a comprehensive, though selective, guide to all facets of the instrument. The book is divided into 4 main parts: Reference and General Studies; Acoustics and Construction; Violin Playing, Performance Practice, and Music; and Violinists, Composers, and Violin Teachers. It will serve as a ready reference for students and scholars, and is a welcome addition to the esteemed Routledge Music Bibliography series.

    Much better than I expected

    I wrote this review for the person who knows nothing about violins at all:This violin is of much higher quality than I ever imagined. It is not, of course, even a good violin by professional standards, but it is a very solid beginner's instrument. I bought it for myself, though I am not a violinist, but I have been playing guitar, bass, and keys for more than six years, and I have played violins before. My ex-girlfriend lent me her first violin when we were dating, and it was really, really horrible. This one is pretty close to her current violin, which was a pretty decent student model. I did a lot of research before buying this one, and I'm really glad I did. It is rated highly by violin teachers and other violinists, but very lowly by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I have read that a lot of violins under $100 don't even have a sound post, which is a crucial part of the violin and absolutely cannot be discarded. You're almost better off with a... 5/5 Zachary Buser - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great quality/price ratio!

    0 5/5 Captain Cadabra - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) Great violin? No. As nice as the ones the music stores rent for $25 a month, yes. Comes with tons of accessories that would cost you $30-40.As a violin teacher, I like to have these on hand for cheap entry level instruments, or rent for $10/month. That way a student doesn't have to get into a year contract at a local music store if they aren't sure if they want to stick with it or not.A great way to get started on the violin for VERY little money. After owning this violin for a year or so, the student can decide to invest in a nicer one, and pass this along to a sibling/friend/Craigslist.Only disclaimer is: make sure you have someone who can setup a violin for you (the case with all violins, regardless of quality). They are NOT instruments that can be played right out of the box, and if you have a store do this for you, it's probably a $30-45 fee. Find a violin playing friend that will do it for free for you :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2011

    Review done by a music teacher

    This violin--to be honest is very cheap. Not just in cost but in quality.BUT overall, not too horrible. Especially if you don't have an option on renting one, or if you don't mind buying one to have.It isn't perfect, but there are some decent qualities about it. I'm very persnickety about instruments, my woodwind instruments cost well into and beyond thousands of dollars range, even my beginning ones.This little guy, for what I want it for--learning the basics (fingering, bowing, proper care) is PERFECT for anyone.Here are my notes about this violin:1. The appearance of the violin is alright. It isn't anything special. In fact, it looks as if paper has been placed over the wood frame, and painted to look like it has groves, or actual wood designs.2. The bow is acceptable, it works well enough for a beginner (young and old). It takes some effort getting the strands to be tight enough. I had to do a lot of pushing in and... 4/5 Carole - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) This violin--to be honest is very cheap.
