    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?)

    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!

    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 :) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2011

    Not good. I ordered these and my son's violin teacher ...

    1/5 N. Lipner - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Merano 1/2 - 1/4 Size Violin String Set (G-D-A-E) + Extra E String ~ Beginner, Student, Replacement Not good. I ordered these and my son's violin teacher admonished me for buying the cheapest thing possible. She sent me to a specialist web site and I got a high quality set and they sound MUCH better. These were impossible to tune, she said they were probably for a different instrument or were mis-labeled. I should have known from the start because they were supposed to come with a free E string and it wasn't in the package.

    Proud owner of a now unplayable instrument.

    1/5 Maya Glover - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Merano 1/2 - 1/4 Size Violin String Set (G-D-A-E) + Extra E String ~ Beginner, Student, Replacement The G string broke before I even tightened it into my instrument. Of course I understand that strings break, and it may have been my fault. But a string breaking should not wreck my entire instrument. The bridge broke after the string snapped and now I'm not sure if I'll even be able to use my instrument Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 19, 2016

    It seems fine, but my little granddaughter has just started lessons

    5/5 Rhetta Wilson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Merano 1/2 - 1/4 Size Violin String Set (G-D-A-E) + Extra E String ~ Beginner, Student, Replacement They were a little hard for the teacher to install bec. of the range; she was putting the long string on the 1/4 size violin. It seems fine, but my little granddaughter has just started lessons, now suspended for the summer, so has not actually played yet. I'm sure the strings are fine.
