    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?)

    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?)

    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.

    An impressive beginner violin

    First of all, I did not have too much expectation on such a low price violin. After open the box, every things appeared well prepped and matching the description perfectly. Definitely the violin was constructed with solid wood. The sound post was still at the right place, and I just needed to setup the bridge. One of the pegs seems a little bit rough and loose, requiring some push to stay when turning. But the alloy tailpiece along with four fine tuners worked very well and made the tuning very easy. The bow looks straight and acceptable. The strings came with the violin were of steel core type. After rubbing the new bow on the rosin for a minute or so, the violin was ready to play. Then I was surprised: it is very loud, powerful (especially the D and G strings) and easy to play. Considering the package includes a carry case, a reasonable quality bow and a rosin, this Bentoni 4/4 violin outfit is good deal for the money. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a student or... 5/5 W.H. - See all my reviews This review is from: Bentoni Full Size 4/4 Beginner Student Solid Wood Violin First of all, I did not have too much expectation on such a low price violin.

    Straight Upgrade from other violins under $100

    Probably the best violin for its price.Pros:1. It has everything that a beginner needs to play violin.2. The violin looks really nice. (Especially the back for the one I received. The finish had a really unique looking pattern)3. This violin can project. Even the lower strings can get really loud. (Usually cheaper violins have a terrible volume problem when it comes to lower strings).4. It's built solidly. The violin survived being in the hands of my friends (high school musicians == careless). It'll probably survive anything.5. It doesn't cost much money.Cons:1. The bow isn't the greatest but it'll work for a beginner. Same for the rosin.2. The strings give off a more tinny tone. I prefer a warmer tone but most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Unless you're a jazz violinist. Then a tinny tone should be on the pro section.3. Doesn't have a shoulder rest.

    Affordable and Good Quality

    I decided to wait a while before reviewing this product to allow my daughter ample time to give me feedback.After months of researching an affordable violin for my 13 yr old daughter, I found this here on Amazon and brough it for Christmas. I had so many worries: how would I get the bridge installed, how much it would cost, would it tune, etc. Well, my daughter's music teacher installed the bridge with no problem and at no charge and my daughter states she loves this violin more than the Yamaha brand we had rented.Also, I read a lot of complaints about the strings constantly breaking on other "affordable" violins, we haven't had that problem with this Cremona. In addition to that, my daughter says that she hasn't had issues with tuning. Keep in mind, she is in the 8th grade and has played the violin since 4th grade, so I like to think she is somewhat knowledgeable. She's definitely more knowledgeable about violins compare to me.Thanks, Cremona for... 5/5 Teresa (Silver Spring, MD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Own A Great Student Violin At A "Rental Price"

    Before going any further...this is a student violin. It is not made for professional use, just school classes, practice and school concerts. Some people review these comparing them to higher end products.Here is what I look for in a student violin:* The ability to tune the instrument and have it hold its tune.* Basic quality: it need not be a one piece back or have flaming on the finish. Just the appropriate woods and materials used to make the violin.* Price: I prefer to own my instruments as opposed to rent them, provided I can find something in the price range of a rental or not too much more, figuring I can probably resell the instrument when it is no longer needed.* Proper shop adjustment (Note: you will need to seat the bridge! Violins typically do not ship with their bridge in place).Why did I buy a Cremona? I have owned several student violins before, with this being my first Cremona purchase. My prior purchases were a `no... 4/5 B. Colonna (Somewhere in NJ) - See all my reviews, October 10, 2011

As a former violin player, my son is eager to learn, too. His teacher loves this violin. Easy to tune, easy to set up with a great carrying case. We purchased one prior to this purchase off of ebay with tragic results!!! This one by far receives an a+ and the service was outstanding!! This is more practical and we get to keep it rather than paying monthly rental fees for a violin from a local instrument shop. His teacher loves it....we can't wait to make some music with it.
