I got this for my 12-year old who wants to learn. According to her teacher, this is great value for the price.

Terrible

It looks great with all the things that come with it but it does not work. You can't lock it after it's tuned so it goes right back out of tune. Bow made no sound. We returned it. Instructions were written by a dummy and video awful as well. My child plays violin already but this product not worth the time or money.

We are returning it. Horse hair broke and became loose on bow within 1 week. The finish is so, so. I liked all the stuff that came with it made it seem to be a value. The music instructor told all the kids (5th graders) not to buy violines online...thought it might be a way for them to support the local music store...in this case it was true.

Bought this for my Granddaughter- she wants to play violin in school - we thought this was a good preview before they make a huge investment in a school instrument!
