    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.

    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?)

    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

    Rating (554 reviews):
    (4.6/5)
    Hal Leonard

    Still hard without a teacher, but ok

    The first part of the book (maybe the first fifth or so) is all about finding the notes and not using the bow, just finger-picking the notes out. After that, it starts getting into bowing techniques. There are may sections that tell you to "hold the bow the way your teacher shows you" and "do not place the bow on the strings until your teacher instructs you," and there are a few sections that are just not clear without a teacher. As with any instrument, though, there's no way to really learn the right way to do it from a book. I wish the instructions were clearer, but I'm not really sure I could articulate HOW the instructions could be made clearer in a written form.There's a lot of basic little songs for the first half or so of the book. None of them are terribly interesting, but, again, a beginner book can only do so much. I went from squeaking horribly to playing "Michael row the boat ashore" just a bit off tune in about a week and a half. (Disclaimer: I've played the piano... 4/5 C.

    Very happy with this method.

    5/5 Brahms1545 (Crestview, FL) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Essential Elements for Strings: Book 1 with EEi (Violin) (Paperback) I use these for my violin classes. They are great! My third graders find the picking very easy to understand. There are a lot of pages of plucking and not bowing. However, once the students learn that method I introduce the bow for the same music so they are eased into bowing a bit earlier. My fourth graders really excelled and my fifth graders went further than any other method I've used. I'm very pleased with how they have learned to read the notes and rhythms. The students always have a pencil handy so they can make their own marks.Fortunately I was able to get an older copy with the CD. I prefer that to the Internet version, which is good but our internet is iffy at times. Glad to have the CD for consistency.

    Good with a teacher, not bad for self learners

    4/5 amazonian - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Essential Elements for Strings: Book 1 with EEi (Violin) (Paperback) This book is for the absolute beginner at both music and the violin. If you are trained in music reading and so forth, you can just skip the bits that explain music theory. Also, at various points in the book it says things like "wait for your teacher to tune your violin", " listen to your teacher play this,". So it is safe to assume that this book was meant for use with a teacher. However, if you are self learning like myself- you can just use common sense to search up a video on turning or finger placement or how hold. This book is very good in which it explains the finger placement and basic violin technique Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 2, 2017

    Great violin for the price.

    4/5 Note Thanupakorn (IOWA CITY, IOWA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cecilio 4/4 CEVN-2NA Solid Wood Mahogany Metallic Electric / Silent Violin with Ebony Fittings in Style 2 (Full Size) (Electronics) This is a solid beginner's instrument. Quality is decent. Detailing on the body is a little rough, but minor. The action is slightly higher than most making it a little harder to play. Tuning works just fine and the bow works like a bow should work. It is also just a hair heavier than a standard violin. Biggest complaint on this one is that I purchased the mahogany finish thinking it would be more of a wood stained look. Instead its more of a sparkly red finish. Wood grain only shows on the back of the neck. This is like due to covering up the rough woodwork job mentioned previously. Overall, I would recommend it as a beginner violin for someone looking to get into playing or something quiet just to practice on.

    Great Quality Instrument!!

    I have been playing violin for three years now and I felt it was time to take the plunge into the electric violin world. I was also looking for something relatively inexpensive since my main violin is on the higher end. This was the perfect choice.Sound - Try as it might, it just can't replicate the sound of an acoustic violin (which I wasn't looking for anyway). It can get pretty close though and all in all the sound is nice. The pickup is good, not the best quality but it does its job pretty well. As for being silent, it is quieter than an acoustic with a mute, but not completely silent.Construction/Look - The body is nice and solid unlike some of the cheap online instruments you can get. The finish is well done and the ebony pieces with mother of pearl inlays look rather nice. The inlays fall flush too, nothing sticking out at all. The pegs don't slip at all. The only thing I could find wrong with the construction was the bridge. It was a bit too high but... 5/5 Mike - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
