    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

    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 EZ Series Shoulder Rest for 4/4 - 3/4 Violin (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

    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

To my surprise my parents picked this up for me. I attempted to tune it and the high e string broke. Not surprising. As a rule, ALWAYS put new string on an instrument right away. The strings it came with were old and low quality. Also be sure to clean the instrument. I was disturbed by the amount of filth that came off the finger board. When i was done with setting it up and such, the instrument i was left with was astounding. The sound and depth is very nice, and the finish is stunning. I'm very happy with it. The case is nice, but it did need to be cleaned. the bows are passable, the rosin..... buy new rosin. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 27, 2010

    A couple minor things

    0 5/5 Chad (South Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV500+92D Flamed 1-Piece Back Solid Wood Violin with Case, Tuner, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Bridge and Strings - Full Size (Electronics) I am a student, not a professional but this violin has a couple of dings in it apparently from the factory.The bridge was indeed already installed and the strings tight which was a little worrisome but apparently didn't effect either.Ebony must be simply a description of the color because the materials used for the fingerboard, chin rest and tail piece are all different and none appear to be anything other than dyed wood (fingerboard) or nylon (plastic) or plastic for the tail piece and chin rest.That said, I can't comment on the rest of this item yet because I haven't had enough experience with it. I will update this review as needed.Update 5/28/11: My instructor can't keep his hands off this instrument. Not because it needs to be tuned constantly, quite the opposite, it holds it's tune for weeks and has really opened up in sound. He loves it and can't believe it was a cheap Chinese manufacture!

    An excellent shoulder rest.

    I accidentally ordered this item instead of its 4/4 size counterpart due to using the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" links from one of the 3/4 size Cecilio electric violins (which I accidentally ordered because I was dumb and didn't double check the order before placing it, which is always a good idea :-P ). I have since purchased the 4/4 version and reviewed it as well, but what I had to say about it holds true for its smaller relative.This is a very sturdy feeling, well-padded shoulder rest, that offers as much adjustability as a shoulder rest is likely to be capable of. The grips can be individually adjusted to provide height adjustments to your preference, and there are three screw holes on each side of the rest for the grips so that their placement can be adjusted to fit any violin in the size range the rest is made for (Amazon's product description simply says 3/4 size, but the box says it will work with any violin between 1/2 and 3/4 size)... 5/5 Noah Ahmed - See all my reviews, February 11, 2013

    Awesome!

    From an initial visual inspection this shoulder rest is built a lot better than the Kun one. My son originally had the Kun collapsible one and it didn't last long. The weakest part were the "fingers" that grab the edge of the violin. It's rubber coated over plastic and eventually the inner plastic breaks. I called Kun since the warranty was in effect and they sent me another finger screw on piece. Guess what? Yep, broke again and I made sure that my son was using it right and not forcing it to bend.Anyway, with this rest the fingers are quite robust and thicker in design. It has much more "meat" to grab the edge of the violin and it looks like it will last much longer. Time will tell. My gut feeling is that it will last a long long time.This one is not of a collapsible design but even with the collapsible Kun, it still is pretty big and the Everest is not that much bigger even though it doesn't collapse.Oh, by the way, the Everest is about... 5/5 Kingmeow (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

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.
