  • I have a six year old daughter, so getting her to practice is very hard. She loves this violin, so she'll practice without arguing.

  • For the price, this is a great student violin. The package comes well equipped with a case, bow, shoulder rest, rosin, extra strings and an extra bridge.

  • I purchased this violin for my 5 year old daughter, because I wanted to sign her up for private instruction to get her out of her comfort zone (im a pianist myself). Before that I did quite a bit of research online, and decided to invest in this one. I was enticed by the pricing and the equipment it comes with. But before purchasing I went down to my childhood music store, where I first learnt piano, and asked my former teacher and owner of the shop what size I should get her. She advices to go for a 1/4 size. I looked at the cheapest violin she had and it was $200. So being my frugal self, I opted for the melodic. It arrived while I was at work so my husband was the lucky one of opening the packaging. He had an issue with the violin not playing and it wasnt producing sound (so I googled/youtubed) and the issue was that we needed to add some Rosin to the bow. Because this rosin is hard (like candy) you need to scratch the surface with a coin until you get this white powder. This white powder is what helps play the sound on the violin. Just run the rosin on the bow a few times enough to cover the bow with some white powder and you should be able to play. Other issues : #1 if your violin isnt producing sound, it needs rosin #2 it your violin sounds scratchy its because it doesnt have enough rosin #3 the pegs move because you need to twist and push in slightly while your tuning so it wont go out of tune #4 if you keep pulling the strings to much or too fast you will snap a string #5 one youve reached the note (ie E) on the tuner but it sounds flat use the little dials on the bottom to turn clockwise or counter clockwise and adjust as needed. Avoid touching the pegs or removing the strings at all costs Melodic is a good brand to start with as a student, especially for a child whose just starting out and will outgrow it within a couple years. Dont listen to the reviews, a lot of ignorance going around that could have been easily solved with common sense and Google. Dont let them detur you from purchasing it. The violin is beautiful, and I cant wait to see my daughter play me a piece in the near future.

  • It is seriously good value. when i was a kid I had a beginner model that sold for $1100 . Now u can get this and its basically as good. You can tell its not the finest of craftsmanship but you have to look close. It produces a pleasant tone i'd call bright, the stock action is fine by me.

    If you wish to try a violin to figure out if you wish to play, this would be the right thing to get. It does not produce the best sound in the world, and the bow that comes with it will not last you long. But it costs the same as a music lesson to figure out if you want to play or not. I would rate this very much a beginners ONLY instrument, and to buy some dark rosin to go with it. The provided one is very hard and needs scoring before running your bow over it.

    I bought this violin for my daughter who used to take lessons at school. It is very light and you need to buy a larger size than a music store bought violin (e.g. for a 1/4 sized music store violin need to buy 3/4 size). It was easily tuned and performs wonderfully for a beginner at a very low price. Great starter violin to see if this instrument is really for you.

    The price is great to give as a gift. The strings are quite loose and it doesn't come with a shoulder rest so you have to buy/order somewhere else.
