    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. I had to do a lot of pushing in and... 4/5 Carole - 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) This violin--to be honest is very cheap.

    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

    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

    The color is a deep beautiful green....little darker then the picture appears. Everything is shipped loose and that is a GOOD thing! Loose meaning the strings ARE attached but are not tightened same with the bow hair. There is no instructions so if you really need help setting up your violin or tuning it I suggest going to Youtube.com that is a very helpful site when needing information on things...they even have violin lessons! I did get new rosin but was later told the rosin that the violin came with was fine. If you are having trouble keeping the pegs in you need to "tighten and push" then into the hole. Not to hard or you may break a peg or string." I am not sure about theses strings but I bought a back up pair of strings in case I broke one. The sound is great as far as I know. Also I have ordered a new bridge because the bridge this violin comes with does not have the notches in it....I feel more comfortable with notches in the bridge.

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.
