    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.

    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.

    Great purchase

    I'm not a professional and this is my 2nd time owning a violin. The first was a few years ago in the third grade... First off, this violin, as many have mentioned is pretty freaking amazing for the price. Especially if you are starting out and want something that sounds good without drying out your pocket. The violin itself was a bit difficult for me to operate at first because, well.. Beginner. But after a few videos I got it tuned and no, the strings did not snap off. When I was putting the bridge I accidentally slipped and the the g string popped. I was scared I that I had broken it but was pleasantly surprised that it was still intact! Yup! The Rosen, im not professional as I mentioned so I can't say I know a good Rosen when I see one. It is useable. After scratching off the glossy surface and used it on my bow, it played fine but I had to adjust every so often and it left white dust on my violin. So if you are as anxious as me and don't wanna wait to buy a new one the one it came... 5/5 Rose - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Bang for Your Buck, Especially When Bought Used! Suggested Replacements are Linked.

    As a beginner, I have hunted any and all online violins here on Amazon within my lower price range. First, it was between a Mendini 300 and the Cecilio CVN-200. After watching videos and reading reviews, Mendini seemed to be the hit or miss violin, and I decided not to take that risk. It was then the 200, right?Wrong. I decided to compare the 200 and 300 at a last second doubt before purchasing. The tones are richer in the 300, but the 200 is significantly lighter if it is a deciding factor to you. The price really is great for the quality of this violin. Keep in mind, you get what you pay for, you won't sound like Lindsey Stirling with whats in here, unless you are a prodigy of a sort.Now, if you are concerned with the value of the bundle portion of the purchase, that's where I docked a star off. Most of the additional items included were doubted automatically, and sadly were right.

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

    Great deal for the money and excellent option for beginner to intermediate player.

    I purchased this violin 10 months ago, so I've had ample time to evaluate it. I played violin all though my teen years and quit in my sophomore year of college. As a middle aged adult, I decided I wanted to play again, but didn’t want to invest a lot of money until I saw if I would be successful at it. I’ve been very happy with this instrument. It has a clean sound and blends well with other instruments. The only change that I’ve made is that I’ve replaced the strings with a set of Dominants, which produce a warmer sound. Our church has an active music program and, after becoming comfortable with playing again, I’ve been accompanying the music at services. I’ve also performed a duet prelude with our music director, who also plays violin, and the tone of our instruments blended together nicely; she was impressed with its sound for an inexpensive violin. The violin holds its tuning well and is comfortable to play. My opinion is that it’s a... 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    So Disappointed

    I was so excited to buy my son a violin for Christmas because he has been wanting one for a really long time. Well, this violin looked and sounded really nice in the description, so I decided to buy it. It arrived quicker than I expected.My son opened up the case, which is not bad quality, and everyone said the violin looked pretty. Sure, it does in fact, look pretty, but the strings can not be tuned and adjusted properly. I put the bridge in exactly as the directions stated to and the strings could be somewhat tightened. The last string is so flimsy and the plastic knob that you turn at the top is plastic and cannot be twisted as much as it needs to be. My husband plays the guitar so he has tuned a string instrument before. He couldn't tune it either. The bow is not of great quality either. When we opened up the rosin, it was completely shattered into pieces.Honestly, the only thing that I think is fairly nice is the case. I really wish that the instrument could be tuned... 1/5 LPN - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great book!

    I purchased this book awhile back and hoped it would help me with playing the violin for the first time. I loved it so well, that I had to show it to a friend. I had purchased him a violin to learn to play, and a wall chart to help in learning. When this book came, I showed it to him, and he liked it so much that I decided to buy one for him. We both are exceptionally happy that we have this book. Its a beginner's book, but does not treat you like a child who is just learning. This book is a great guide to taking each step, one at a time, to learning to play the violin. Notes are discussed, as well as flats and sharps, and how long to hold your notes, etc. I just started back to learning my notes, and this is a great way to get back in practice. You also learn how to hold the violin correctly, how to hold the bow correctly, and how to keep your violin cleaned. Its a great book if you want to learn the correct way to play the violin.

This review is from: Essential Elements for Strings: Book 1 with EEi (Violin) (Paperback) Our 4th grader has recently started the violin lessons at school.

Just three weeks into her classes she is already able to play about 10 simple songs from this book.

This review is from: Mendini Full Size 4/4 MV200 Solid Wood Violin with Tuner, Lesson Book, Extra Strings, Shoulder Rest, Bow and Case, Natural Varnish Finish Incredible value for what this setup costs. I purchased this violin for fun, and it delivers. Disclaimer: almost all violin teachers will scoff at a violin at this price point. The only positive voice in favor of this was a youtube teacher that goes by "the online violin and piano teacher". Check out her videos. She has alot of great information out there. The violin needed some adjusting right out of the box; I have extensive experience working on instruments, so I knew how to adjust the bridge, and tune it using the pegs and the fine tuners.The only negative I have to say is that the fingerboard is painted in a fairly crude manner. At this price, I dont expect a beautiful solid black ebony fingerboard, but i could have done without the gloopy paint job. I was able to clean most of the sloppy parts up with a sharp knife, but the was a huge dried paint blob between the two middle strings. None of this effects playability though. Just me being picky.

This review is from: Mendini Full Size 4/4 MV200 Solid Wood Violin with Tuner, Lesson Book, Extra Strings, Shoulder Rest, Bow and Case, Natural Varnish Finish I bought these for my 10 year old daughters as they have expressed interest in learning to play, but I did not want to pay a lot for an instrument when they are just starting off. I had a relative who has played for years tune them for me and he indicated that these are excellent violins for beginners. According to him, the produced sound is good, but not great and tuning wasn't as smooth as much higher quality violins, however for the price he was extremely surprised with the overall quality and everything that came with it. Very nice case and extra strings were a plus.Later down the road if my daughters enjoy playing and their lessons, then I'll upgrade the instrument.

This review is from: ADM 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Acoustic Violin Starter Kits(Violin Hard Case, Bow, Extra Strings, Rosin, Bridges), Popular Violin Package for Beginners, Black The "D" and the "A" strings were flip-flopped so we had to move them, the next problem was one of the strings (G) snapped while trying to tune it. The problem with that was, it wasn't even close the right note before it snapped. The fact that it came wrong in the first place lost 2 stars and then on top of it, the string snapping before it was even in tune - lost another star. I would be nice to hear back from the manufacturer - maybe send us another set of strings. - at least a G string.

    Good value for the money, great entry level instrument, easy to set up

    I received this for free recently in exchange for a review. I'm not a musician, but am fairly good at learning how things work (or are supposed to work), and despite performing a very bad Henny Youngman impersonation (ask your grandparents, kids!), was able to come up with an adequate assessment.When it arrived, the violin came inside its case, protected by a plastic bag and well padded by packing material. Inside the violin case, you'll find the violin (protected with a soft velvet sheet), bow, two bridges, spare strings, the manual, a cleaning cloth and rosin block. Mine was missing the rosin block, but the kind folks at ADM sent me one right away, and a week later I was able to try out the violin.The case is lightweight, foam with a durable nylon outer shell, two zips for the main compartment with a velcro flap to cover the pulls in the middle, two straps so you could wear it like a backpack, a large outer compartment (roughly 8x9).
