    Go Violin!

    I ordered this violin on a Sunday evening and recieved it the following Saturday at 9am with the cheapest shipping.This is, well, a cheap violin. You're looking at it because you're interested in getting a cheap violin. Why? I thought of the following:Decor, prop, for a child, to find out if you hate or have an unknown untapped talent for the violin, you think it will be fun, but don't want to spend a lot of cash on a whim.I'm kind of the last two, and I don't have piles of cash lying around. So I figured I can afford that, if I hate it then hey at least it would look pretty in a room of my house somewhere.So yeah, it arrived timely. The case... is cheap. There's like some glue on the felt in spots, wooden debris, the outer material feels a bit flimsy, but it's a case, and it will suffice. It actually looks soft-sided but it's firm. I kinda like it. My interior was red, not the tan.Setting up the bridge is really easy. I'm... 4/5 Robyn (MN, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    So I'm going to be very critical and explain everything on my account of this violin.First and foremost, this violin can't hold a tune. Obviously, it's brand new! For anyone who knows anything about stringed instruments, new strings take a week to two weeks of gently playing with and tuning the strings so that they stretch and can hold a tune. So, disregard anything someone says about it not holding a tune, they must be really new.So the violin. It seems like a solid instrument. The coloring is cute, and it has a tiny bit of weight (its incredibly light). You need to attach the bridge yourself, which is very easy with the instructions that they give you. This is so that the bridge or strings don't break during shipping. Makes a very nice sound.The bow. The bow is a very nice one, smooth and solid. The horsehair can be tightened and loosened by a bolt at the end of the frog for easier storage.

    I received my violin on Tuesday, September 17. I'm writing this review after owning and playing it for one week now. This has been my experience with the violin so far.The day I received the violin, I was unable to set it up because the tailcord that holds the tailpiece to the end pin of the violin kept loosening and eventually one of the little nuts that grip on to the tailcord to hold the tailpiece together came off. I found out on youtube that you can burn the end pieces of the tailcord so that the nut can get a good grip and keep it from coming off. I had to do that three times because every time I would set it up and tune it, the tailcord would snap after a couple hours of practicing. Finally the last time I did it, I burned the end piece a little further down before tightening the nut on the tailcord, my idea was that this would make it harder for the nut to slip, and since then the violin has stayed in tune and had no problems practicing.Why 5 stars... 5/5 givemeacent - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    What to do with your new Violin! PLEASE READ BEFORE REVIEWING

    Hi all, I noticed a lot of people reviewing this violin may just not know what to do with a new violin. Here is a quick rundown of what needs to be done when you get a brand new from-the-factory violin. Dear makers, please feel free to print this out and put it in with your violins so people give it a chance before writing it off:1) The bow: 1a) Bows without rosin make no sound. So Step 1 is to rosin your bow. You want to spin the little knob on the end of your bow until the wooden part is flat and there is about a finger width between the hair and the wood. 1b) There is a small plastic box in a holding box in your case, open it up and run your bow across it a few times until the surface of the rosin isn't super shiny. To help this along, you can run a nail file over the rosin first to rough it up a bit. Just move up and down the bow several times, making sure you get the very top and very bottom.2) The violin: At first glance it will look like... 4/5 Zaharia (Cockeysville, MD United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Terrible.

    1/5 Ellie Cohen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: YR-Seasons 4/4 Size Acoustic Violin with Case,bow,rosin Black for Violin Beginner This "violin" is cheaply made, almost like plastic. None of the strings fit and most of them won't even tighten properly. Do not purchase this instrument, because it's worth nothing. The pictures are deceiving and the case is incredibly cheap.

    3/5 Cadaver xLegacy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: YR-Seasons 4/4 Size Acoustic Violin with Case,bow,rosin Black for Violin Beginner Straight to the details its not the most impressive to look at and definitely not for someone who is sure they want to learn violin. You get what you pay for the quality is expected for the price. I feel as someone who has a passion for wanting to try violin but doesn't want to sink to much money into just testing the water so to speak it will do fine. If you are only looking to see how you will like learning violin by all means get it but if you are more serious and know you want to learn violin put the extra money out for a higher quality one Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 11, 2015
