    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.

    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. You're almost better off with a... 5/5 Zachary Buser - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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?)

    Comparison between Mendini MV300

    First I am going to start off by telling you what I think of this violin itself. It really is a great violin for a beginner with a little work.The good:1. The color is absolutely gorgeous (The picture truly does not do it justice).2. The sound was actually very good. It was certainly suitable for a beginner. Even though it is a painted violin, it really does not dull the sound much. If you upgraded the strings, it would sound much better.3. The case does it's job wellNow the bad:1. The bridge. When this violin arrives, the bridge needs to be set and the strings tuned before it is playable, but the bad bridge makes that a little bit difficult. The bridge was not shaped completely for the violin. The feet were not made to hug the body and there were no grooves for the string to fall into. So it might need a little work, but once you get it set up its good.2. Tuning. I expected it to fall out of tune pretty quickly, as all new violins will. They... 3/5 Lindsey - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Its as close to a professional violin as you can get!

    5/5 Maggie Perry - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ADM 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Acoustic Violin Starter Kit(with Violin Hard Case, Bow, Extra Strings, Rosin, Bridges, Polishing Cloth), Popular Violin Package for Beginners, Blue Honestly, this is a great starter violin! When I opened the package, it was in its case. The case is lightweight and protective, but I would still suggest being careful with it. There is some assembly acquired, but it was actually super easy- just the bring, a misplaced string, and a peg! Once you figure that out, not a thing is out of place! It has a beautiful even paint job and the sound quality is excellent! The bow was alright, it needs a lot of rosin, unfortunately... the rosin they give is terrible! I'm not sure if its real horse hair or synthetic, but purchasing another bow isn't a bad idea anyway. Once you rosin the bow for a very long time though, it sounds pretty good. I totally recommend this product to anyone learning and trying the violin before upgrading to something more professional. Looks exactly like the picture too! Again, great product!, January 11, 2015

    Overall a good violin

    3/5 LPH - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ADM 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Acoustic Violin Starter Kit(with Violin Hard Case, Bow, Extra Strings, Rosin, Bridges, Polishing Cloth), Popular Violin Package for Beginners, Blue This violin is beautiful. I bought it because I have decided to get back into playing after not playing for quite some years.Cons*Rosin is low quality and you will have to spend a lot of time putting a lot of it on the bow to make the violin produce any sound.*Bridge is not set. Mine came with 2 bridges and only one was fit to the violin.*Strings are barely put on. You will have to finish putting them on after getting the bridge set.Pros*Mine came with 2 sets of strings.*The bow is actually pretty nice.*Once again, mine came with a battery powered tuner that clips on the fret broad.* I received 2 bows with my violin.*The case is really nice. I do suggest being careful with it as it isn't a hard case.*It came with a removable shoulder rest which is really nice.*It came with a muter. I have yet to need to use one and this one makes me a little nervous. It looks like it's made from a chunky of rubber from a car tire., January 1, 2016

    Strung wrong and string broke within hours - couldn't get it tuned before the string broke.

    2/5 MKZTG - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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.
