    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.

    0 5/5 forster - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Violin For Dummies, 2nd Edition (Kindle Edition) I bought this because my boyfriend made me the gift of a violin for Christmas. My main instrument is the piano so I had no idea what I was doing with such a beautiful instrument. This book is a great starting point for musician as well as those who have never touched an instrument. You can skip parts if you are experienced enough to know them already, and everything is explained thoroughly, almost too thoroughly. I bought the Kindle edition so the videos are not readily available but from the text I can see that even the smallest technique is not only explained step by step, but is accompanied by a picture and a video. I advise anyone starting any instrument to keep a determined attitude and keep practicing, because it will not sound pretty at first. I look forward to continuing my violin education with this book. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 11, 2013

    Kennedy Violins

    Very good sound, great service

    I purchased a Ricard Bunnel G2 from Kennedy Violins about two weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the instrument. I found out about them while reading reviews about other cheaper violins and decided to check out their website. I really liked the YouTube videos that they have put together for most of their violins, which I found very informative and gave me a good feeling about their instruments. Called them and spoke to Joel on the phone, who patiently answered all my questions, and decided to place an order. The violin was at my door in 3 business days, it was already set up, tuned and ready to go; they had even applied rosen to the bow! It came with a nice bow, a decent case with plenty of room for a shoulder rest and a pocket for your music sheets, rosen and extra strings. After some minor tuning, I was ready to go. I'm very pleased with the deep sound of the G2, and with its looks - I really like the oil-based finish.

    Excellent Violin

    Though I am a beginning violinist, this is already my second violin, and I wish it had been my first.I initially purchased a violin outfit through a different company because it had decent reviews, was very inexpensive, and seemed a good enough start for someone who has wanted to learn violin for quite some time but doesn't know if they'll take to it and therefore doesn't want to fork over an entire paycheck for something that may only serve as a very expensive decoration on their wall.Unfortunately, it sounded awful. Far beyond the typical squeaks and scratches often produced by a beginning violinist--the sound quality was in fact so poor that it was virtually unplayable, because I couldn't distinguish my mistakes from the awful wailing of the violin itself. Originally I decided that I would upgrade the very cheap strings already installed on it and see if that made a difference, however a lucky internet search brought me to the website for Kennedy Violins,... 5/5 Jennifer - See all my reviews This review is from: Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin Outfit 4/4 (full) Size Though I am a beginning violinist, this is already my second violin, and I wish it had been my first.I initially purchased a violin outfit through a different company because it had decent reviews, was very inexpensive, and seemed a good enough start for someone who has wanted to learn violin for quite some time but doesn't know if they'll take to it and therefore doesn't want to fork over an entire paycheck for something that may only serve as a very expensive decoration on their wall.Unfortunately, it sounded awful.

    Love Kennedy Violins

    At this point I am obsessed with this, I did so much research and it has truly paid off!!!! Here is what I have learned (or guessed from what I have read). This guy, Joel Kennedy, the best I can figure about 30-40 years old was unhappy with the crappy violins his students were bringing in for lessons. They call them VSO's (Violin Shaped Objects). So he found a source in his travels to China, to make a violin that is affordable but made to his standards.Again this is what I have learned, or guessed, violins under $100 dollars are VSO's, made with plywood and lacquer finished to look like a violin. We bought our beginner violin for around $260 from Kennedy Violins. It is made from tight grained spruce wood from the Himalayas, maple, and a second grade ebony (but still a really high grade). These are the proper materials for a violin to be made out of. The finish of her violin is hand rubbed oil finish (I think my favorite quote from them is "lacquer is great finish... 5/5 Amiba Productions "zagoon" - See all my reviews This review is from: Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin Outfit 4/4 (full) Size At this point I am obsessed with this, I did so much research and it has truly paid off!!!!

    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
