    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.

    Review done by a music teacher

    This violin--to be honest is very cheap. Not just in cost but in quality.BUT overall, not too horrible. Especially if you don't have an option on renting one, or if you don't mind buying one to have.It isn't perfect, but there are some decent qualities about it. I'm very persnickety about instruments, my woodwind instruments cost well into and beyond thousands of dollars range, even my beginning ones.This little guy, for what I want it for--learning the basics (fingering, bowing, proper care) is PERFECT for anyone.Here are my notes about this violin:1. The appearance of the violin is alright. It isn't anything special. In fact, it looks as if paper has been placed over the wood frame, and painted to look like it has groves, or actual wood designs.2. The bow is acceptable, it works well enough for a beginner (young and old). It takes some effort getting the strands to be tight enough.

    Great quality/price ratio!

    0 5/5 Captain Cadabra - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) Great violin? No. As nice as the ones the music stores rent for $25 a month, yes. Comes with tons of accessories that would cost you $30-40.As a violin teacher, I like to have these on hand for cheap entry level instruments, or rent for $10/month. That way a student doesn't have to get into a year contract at a local music store if they aren't sure if they want to stick with it or not.A great way to get started on the violin for VERY little money. After owning this violin for a year or so, the student can decide to invest in a nicer one, and pass this along to a sibling/friend/Craigslist.Only disclaimer is: make sure you have someone who can setup a violin for you (the case with all violins, regardless of quality). They are NOT instruments that can be played right out of the box, and if you have a store do this for you, it's probably a $30-45 fee. Find a violin playing friend that will do it for free for you :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2011

    Great Instrument For Starting Out

    My teacher was more than pleasantly surprised when I brought this MV400 to him for setup.. Which by the way, was nothing more than tuning the strings. The action, tuning pegs, bridge and sound post were all matched and aligned properly. My instructor was pleased to note the violin had inlaid purfling as well as a solid set of strings. In fact, the strings (according to his trained ear, not mine) are higher quality and sound than a "Red Label Super Sensitive" set I purchased. The bows are of various weight and quality, with one being a better option than the other in this starter kit. I do recommend purchasing a different rosin for a darker tone.The instrument is not perfect, nor is it professional grade but for the beginning student (or in my case, the returning student) but a better value will likely not be found. I will be able to make it sing for a few years to come. My instructor labeled this violin as a "grade 7 or 8 level instrument."

    Really impressive for the price: I'm an experienced violinist

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:36 MinsI am an experienced (though not professional) violinist and this is spectacularly good for the price. This video of me playing a bit of Strauss on it to show what it sounds like.Granted, it is a cheap violin, so you have to expect a cheap violin. It's fairly lurid bright orange, the case feels like it's made of polystyrene, and the feel is cheap all over.HOWEVER, it plays remarkably well. Well enough that I actually actively enjoy playing it. I bought it because I am travelling at the moment and didn't want to bring my normal violin with me. I'm not a professional violinist but a serious one who has been playing for 34 years. I was not expecting this violin to be enjoyable to play - I was just expecting it to be adequate. But I can make a quite nice tone on it.I read a lot of the reviews of this violin and some of the problems reported might be because of variations in factory production, but might also be because you... 5/5 Categoricienne (Chicago, US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV400 Ebony Fitted Solid Wood Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Extra Bridge and Strings - Full Size (Electronics), September 26, 2014

    God, Why Did I Wait So Long?

    I am not a professional musician by any means--I play the keyboard moderately well, but a couple of years ago I decided to broaden my horizons a little, so bought a violin (from Amazon, of course...) I watched numerous videos both before and after that purchase, and a few that stuck with me 'poo-pooed' the use of a shoulder rest, as if that somehow was an affront to the 'purist' philosophy. Well, I listened to that and toughed it out--failing to make any progress whatsoever--until just the other night when I watched a virtuoso violinist play Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Guess what? She used a shoulder rest. Well, deciding to be a moron no longer, I spent a little time reading reviews and settled on this, for both the price and apparent quality. I received it today, a day early even with Prime, and then watched a short Youtube video on how to install it. Oh. My. God. What an amazing difference! The rest installed tightly and perfectly, and within thirty seconds I was holding the instrument... 5/5 R. Seehoffer "Author" (Mesa, AZ) - See all my reviews, August 1, 2012

    Better than a Kun

    0 5/5 Morna Roberts "Chloebird" (Evanston, IL) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Everest Violin Shoulder Rest 4/4 And 3/4 (Electronics) I really like the Everest shoulder rest, because it grips the violin well and doesn't fall off. I've had Kun pads in the past, but in recent years they changed the type of rubber they use, and it causes the pad to slip off the violin frequently. The Everest also has solid rubber feet, so it poses no danger to the violin; on a Kun, the rubber will eventually wear down to bare metal. The Everest appears to be well-made, and even has thicher shoulder padding- very comfortable! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 14, 2011

    I bought one of these for my 9-year old daughter, who decided she wanted a violin. Since this new found interest could just be a passing fad for her, I looked for a cheap instrument (in case she later lost interest, I wouldn't be out a lot of money.) I went to a local music store to measure her size (between 1/2 and 3/4). Then I ordered the 3/4-size on-line.What arrived astounded me. It was beautiful to look at, real wood, very nicely finished, and came in a "backpack" case. The violin came with the bridge in place, a real horsehair bow, a cake of rosin. Both the violin strings and the bow were shipped loose, and have to be tightened to play. The bow won't make a proper sound until it is tightened and rosined. The rosin cake has to be scratched first to produce a white powder. It is the combination of the white rosin powder on the bow hairs that produces the sweet violin sound.I think people who complain about the sound of this violin when they first... 5/5 Dr. M "Professor" (Austin TX) - See all my reviews This review is from: Crystalcello MV100 3/4 Size Violin with Case + Bow + Accessories - Natural Color I bought one of these for my 9-year old daughter, who decided she wanted a violin.

    Good bang for your buck if you have some mechanical skills.

    0 4/5 KnightRider - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Crystalcello MV100 3/4 Size Violin with Case + Bow + Accessories - Natural Color Out of the box, the bridge was much to high. Had to do some lengthy, accurate sanding in order to get the string action right. The rosin was all but a crumbled mess, so be prepared to purchase another one. However, the violin is made of wood and the finish is decent. It did have some minor cosmetic flaws, but for the price I can't complain. Tuning pegs need to have some inward pressure applied to them when tuning in order to stay tight, and hold tune. After about an hour of tweaking/sanding/tuning the violin was playing well. My 13yo daughter fell in love with it, and has been practicing daily. For less than 45 bucks, you can't expect more. Well worth the investment. Especially if you have a child that is going through the "I want to try this now" stage. Good starter violin just to see if they stick with it, but definitely would upgrade to a higher quality violin if she she still shows interest after 3 months. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 25, 2013

    To Each Instrument Its Own...

    I bought a set of these strings for my student violin of which I continue to play with into college and after in a community orchestra. My student instrument tends to prefer the inexpensive strings and sounds better with them, hence my title to each instrument its own. But I find this set to be warm and beautiful like a gut set even though the strings are steel. On my more expensive instrument I prefer the Pirastro brand like Pirastro Gold and I feel as though the Prelude's compare. The Piastro Gold is sharper and deeper/darker with some brightness to it. The Preludes have the same warmth, but is more sweeter sounding than the Golds. Furthermore, it takes little time for it to acclimate than the Gold and is far cheaper. It may sound a little more muted than the Gold, but I'm happy with the projection of the Prelude if I can get a smooth, sweet, sound like I do. It doesn't sound broken or harsh, the Preludes are smooth like buttah and they last a long time (not as long as... 5/5 Danielle (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: D'Addario Prelude Violin String Set, 4/4 Scale, Medium Tension (Misc.)

On my more expensive instrument I prefer the Pirastro brand like Pirastro Gold and I feel as though the Prelude's compare. The Piastro Gold is sharper and deeper/darker with some brightness to it. The Preludes have the same warmth, but is more sweeter sounding than the Golds. Furthermore, it takes little time for it to acclimate than the Gold and is far cheaper. It may sound a little more muted than the Gold, but I'm happy with the projection of the Prelude if I can get a smooth, sweet, sound like I do. It doesn't sound broken or harsh, the Preludes are smooth like buttah and they last a long time (not as long as...

    Beginner's Best Friend

    0 5/5 HowlyGrowly (TX, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario Prelude Violin String Set, 4/4 Scale, Medium Tension (Misc.) I recently started learning to play an electric violin and had to replace one of my strings. I had no idea what I was doing, but these strings were affordable and highly rated. So, I gave them a go. I'm glad I did! These strings will be your best friend if you are a novice player who has fumbled tuning the strings a time or two. The inside of the envelope reveals a color code for each string (G,D,A,E), and I had no trouble at all replacing my broken string with one of these for the very first time. The replacement blends in with the other steel strings that my violin came with. If you don't want your practice to be held up with a broken string, I highly recommend buying two or three of these packs for backup! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 11, 2011

Violin iPad 2/3/4 Case

violins, fiddle, fiddles, violinist, music,
This iPad 2/3/4 case presents a classical still life of an elegant old violin. This graceful instrument is essentially a hollow wooden box with rounded ends, two graceful f holes and a narrow center. The four sets of strings extend from a string holder at the bottom of the body over a raised bridge to the end of the narrow neck, or fingerboard where the four strings are inserted into a pegbox and are held there with pegs. The pegs are used to tune the violin. When the bow is drawn across the strings on the body of the violin it produces incredible, magical music! The gorgeous golden brown, almost orange tones are set off by graceful black velvet fabric.

Gris / 1913 / Violin and Guitar / Canvas Print

gris, 1913, violin, guitar, colin, collection,
1913 (150 Kb); Oil on canvas, 100 x 65.5 cm (39 3/8 x 25 3/4 in); The Colin Collection, New York (DC 57) Violin and Guitar is a magisterial statement that marked 1913 as the beginning of Gris's mature art. Here he combines the inherent dignity and poetic quality of the objects with an exploration of their three-dimensional aspects. An essentially cruciform composition underlies the whole and lends a hierarchical air; however, as with his use of the golden section, Gris was never absolutely precise in making his measurements fit a predetermined scheme. The painting is built on a series of pictorial rhymes among the forms of the guitar, violin, and glass. Gris's predilection for rhymes, or rhythms based on visual similarities, has been compared to the techniques of the poets who were so much a part of his milieu, but it can also be found in the art of his colleagues. More fundamentally poetic is the spirited flight of artistic manipulation that occurs in the central section, juxtaposed with the conventional world symbolized by the wood molding, wallpaper, and floorboards of a surrounding room. These background details establish a representational setting as well as a pictorial plane of possibilities. This richly detailed room should be seen as having fantastic associations for Gris since he reportedly lived in utter squalor.
