    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. The tuner gave up within 5 minutes, and even with a switch of the provided batteries to... 4/5 Cheyenne P. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect!!

    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

    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?)

    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?)
