    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.

    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?)

    Best Beginner Violin Book for Self Teaching (IMO)

    I started playing violin about a year ago and ordered three beginner books (ABC's, Essential Elements for Strings, and Suzuki) to try them out and see which I liked the most for learning violin without a teacher. I thought ABC's had the best learning curve for techniques and was organized really well in teaching violin skills and I really liked the eclectic songs that they used. ABC's also did a good job of picking the right songs to help teach each "lesson", for instance learning how to slur in the end of the book.Suzuki was also a good book, but I could tell going through it that it was geared more towards having a teacher. It also had a steeper learning curve in the beginning.Essential Elements did the best at explaining technique and fingerings but I didn't like the song choices as much as in ABC's or Suzuki. However I did find it to be better for self teaching than Suzuki.P.S. If you get this book, definitely use the CD that... 5/5 Derek Wood - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A decent violin method book; there are better ones.

    First, to those who are disappointed with the lack of explanations: this is a method book; i.e. a book of sheet music. There is very little text instruction or pictures because there is not supposed to be any. The title and the description page is misleading, which may have caused some people to believe otherwise. If you are trying to teach yourself (not impossible, but much harder than with a teacher), you need some instructional material: youtube videos, internet pages, and maybe an instructional book (Violin for Dummies is a good one). And then you need a method book (a book of graded sheet music), such as this one, to play music from.As a method book, I think this is okay, not great; I am certainly puzzled by the abundance of five star reviews. First, the physical/outward aspects: the binding (staples) and materials are good, and the print is very clear. The music is mostly very boring and progresses very slowly.

    In love with this purchase!!

    5/5 Lizzi Key - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner: Violin, Book 1 (Paperback) This is a great book for an ultimate beginner, like me. I had music class all the way back in middle school and since then I completely forgot how to read sheet music. This book really went over that before learning anything else, which was great. Also, my book came with a hand written note explaining their gratitude for my purchase, and scattered in the book are little hand written tid bits. I love that it seems like a book someone took time with, and really wanted the buyer to enjoy LEARNING violin. Love love love it.

    exelent for beginners if a bit pricy

    4/5 Chris C (Knoxville) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Don't Fret FF121 First Fret Beginners Fingering Decal for 4/4 Violin and 14-Inch Viola (Electronics) This is a serious aid in helping me learn to play as there is no one around that can put on fingerboard tape for me so this was measured in advanced so all i needed to do was peal and stick. I did find it a little annoying to apply to be honest but after about 5 minutes had it on strings tuned and ready to go. though i still have a small air bubble near the top it does not interfere with anything as it is a place the string will never touch. I did find this product to be just a little pricy for what it was. and a key note is this gives you the markers for first position for all those beginners like me moving the positions is very easy just move your fingers down one fret line then the spacing stays the same all the way up to 4th position.
