Cecilio Mendini Full Size 4/4 MV200 Natural Finish Solid Wood Violin Package + Bow, Hardcase, Shoulder Rest, 2 Bridges, 2 Sets Violin Strings & Rosin
Great price for the quality: a beginner's solution to high price
- Pros: I bought this thing back in high school. If you're a beginner, this is the way to go. Tuning can be a pain due to the plastic pegs. However, you can always buy new pegs. It's a good idea to take your violin to a professional at your local music shop that specializes in stringed instruments to have the new pegs fitted and set your bridge right among a few other things depending on your instruments needs. This is essential to have a decent sound. Emphasis on decent; this is not to be confused with a concert qualified instrument. When you've played a few years , the difference between this and a true violin are obvious. Oh, and buy different strings. These strings are tinny, but that should be expected. The rosin I had gotten was dry and unusable, but whatever. My favorite kind is only $5 and lasts years. The bow also holds up well, but after a couple years of practice should be replaced for a better one. I'm a firm believer that lower quality instruments (but still usable) forces players to try harder to make themselves sound better. This is the way to start.
- Cons: Not the best. Pegs slip. Doesn't cost more.
