    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.

    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.

    Give It a Chance

    I bought this for my 8 year-old niece for Christmas. She's been begging to have a violin for as long as I can remember, and I can guaranty she won't be disappointed with this instrument.There are some things that need to be said in this review though.First of all, I've played guitar for the last 33 years. I began playing when I was ten. By the time I was a teenager, I was not only playing guitar and bass, but I was doing repair work for myself and other people. I know electric guitars and basses inside and out. About the only thing I can't, or won't do with one of these instruments is a re-fret - mainly because I don't have the space or the tools for it. I've been setting up stringed instruments for more than half my life.That being said...I firmly believe a lot of the negative reviews I've read here are written by people who felt the violin should have been in tune and playable right out of the box - which is ludicrous.

    5/5 eyezayuh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cecilio CVN-300 Solidwood Ebony Fitted Violin with D'Addario Prelude Strings, Size 4/4 (Full Size) (Electronics) This violin looks great, sounds great and is just overall a great product. I've been playing for 13 years and I can tell you that the quality of this instrument is comparable to that of a violin that costs over $1000. All I had to do when I received it is just adjust the bridge a little and tune it up. Everything that came with the violin was great quality also. I recommend this to anyone that is looking for a good quality violin at an inexpensive price. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 3, 2014

    Did my research, this was the one... and I don't regret it at all...

    I received this violin as a gift from my wife, but before I got it I did lots of research for which violin to buy, and the Cecilio CVN300 was the one. I play Piano and Guitar and I always loved to learn to play the Violin. The CVN300 is a bang for the buck deal, it's not just a beginners instrument, I would say that is more for an intermediate player. I didn't wanted to buy just a beginners instrument, I wanted something more to cover my intermediate learning playing. It comes with a Chromatic tuner which you will definitively will need since the strings needs to be tuned daily. The case is awesome, strong, light and carries everything that you need to get started. It even comes with a shoulder rest (if you needed), two bows and rosin!... It sounds great, is not scratchy, is loud enough (enough that I'm thinking to buy a mutter for my practices, that BTW it came with a Beginners Lesson book!), great craftsmanship, it looks awesome and I really love it. If I need to throw a con is that... 5/5 Hector Quintero - See all my reviews This review is from: Cecilio CVN-300 Solidwood Ebony Fitted Violin with D'Addario Prelude Strings, Size 4/4 (Full Size) (Electronics) I received this violin as a gift from my wife, but before I got it I did lots of research for which violin to buy, and the Cecilio CVN300 was the one.

    Great customer service! Good beginner violin and overall great package!

    I'm still in the process of learning how to play but I'm coming along quite well! Everything seems to be holding up violin wise. The strings haven't snapped on me yet and the bridge has stayed firm. However, upon recieving my pkg, the very first thing I noticed was that the chin rest was broken in half. The case it comes with is hard like described (the case itself is actualy wonderful), so I don't know how the chin rest got broken like that unless it was on the verge of breaking before it was packaged. I sent a return request and upon their reply I was asked to provide pictures of the damaged item (which I did via email) and a week later they mailed me a replacement chin rest! How simple and painless! Very pleased with their service! Both bows are intact and do their job, the shoulder rest was smaller than I hoped for but once I found the right spot for it on the violin and on my shoulder it also does it's job. I haven't used the rosin it came with since my research led me to learn... 4/5 Hannah Elder (Alabama, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Sometimes Books are the Best

    As a beginner, I've been trying to find just the right tool to teach me the violin, short of actually hiring a teacher.I've used "Dummies" books for years, going back to the olden days when I got a copy of "The Internet for Dummies." Later I learned how to use Adobe Illustrator from a "Dummies" book and was able to complete a huge marketing project because of it.I subscribe to an online violin tutor program but find that I'm constantly stopping and starting the videos. Plus, it's difficult to go back to and find lessons that answer simple questionsThat's why this "Dummies" book is so helpful. Everything is laid out chapter by chapter. Some can be skipped, depending on one's knowledge of music. For example, I play the guitar and clarinet, so basic information about music, notes and tempo aren't needed. But, I know absolutely nothing about the violin so I need to learn every part of it, how to hold it, how to use the... 5/5 McBean (Orange County, California) - See all my reviews, May 28, 2015

    Excellent For Adult-Learners Who Enjoy the Technical as Well as the Musical

    If you’re considering taking up the violin – and seeing how far you can get on your own without a teacher there are things to consider – if for no other reason to save yourself frustration, boredom and possible needless expense.What kind of music are you interested in playing? What excites you about the violin and what do you hope to accomplish with it? Can you read music and are you willing to learn if the music you wish to play requires it? How much time and effort can you reasonably hope to devote to practicing – be as specific (and honest with yourself) as possible.'Violin for Dummies' is ideal for adult learners who, like many adult beginners of varying pursuits, have a fascination with technique and learning ‘the right way’ – in this case, classical violin technique with an emphasis on nuanced bow control, dynamics, expressive vibrato and reading from score.
