OVERVIEW

Educator endorsed.

Educators recommend the Stentor Student II as the optimum teaching instrument. Made from hand-carved selected tone woods. Also features the advantage of ebony pegs and fingerboard, a good student wooden bow with an ebony frog, and rope core strings. The outfit comes complete with a lightweight case with accessory pockets and carrying strap. Available in sizes: 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8.

Stentor violins, violas, and cellos are made by hand in a workshop environment in much the same way that they have been made in Europe for hundreds of years. Stentor instruments have the essential characteristics of good tone quality plus correct measurements and specifications. Stentor sells more violins than any other company worldwide.

I considered spending three times what I paid on a student guitar. I'm happy I chose the Stentor II and Musician's Friend had a great Labor Day sale price. The violin is beautiful, the case is perfect (see uTube review) the bow works fine. I purchased Hill rosin so I can't comment on the rosin provided. I have a Korg tuner which helps greatly. I purchased and highly recommend "How to Play Fiddle" by Larry McCabe, the fretlless violin finger guide (use their online music for fast start), and a Wolf Forte Primo shoulder pad (fits in case on side of scroll/finger board). I watch Allison Sparrow the online tutor on uTube. I will probably eventually replace the strings with Dominants once I am more comfortable with my progress and my ability to change a string when one breaks. Learning to play violin is harder than harp (Harpsicle) or guitar (Little Martin) which I play for my own pleasure and for my dogs who usually don't howl or leave the room. But I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (scratchy but recognizable). I practice for 20 minutes every day. This works for me since I am determined and methodical but I am not naturally musically inclined. I am just happy to finally have a beautiful violin to play!

The violin arrived as promised. However, the G string broke immediately upon tuning. There was also a noticeable blemish in the varnish (approx. 1" in diameter) that protruded about 1/16" from the surface. This was a disappointment, and I returned it.

    Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

    Well, this violin is a great violin for the price, and it is comparable to violins that are more expensive. To have a nice Ebony fretboard on an instrument this inexpensive is very good; plus the quality of craftsmanship is amazing. This sounds great too. If you look at 90+% of instructors; they almost always recommend this one for beginners. It is amazing in sound, and it has quality wood involved in the creation of this violin. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great beginner violin. Also, pitch in the extra few money to get this over the Stentor I.

    Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

    I was impressed and happy when I saw the violin. The rosin was poor (it kept on breaking). I liked the case. However, I prefer a black case. I experienced tuning difficulties. I loved the color. Overall: I think this violin is in good condition. I would recommend this to friends.

          I "loaned" my old fiddle to my daughter who lives 1000 miles away. I missed having one around, and am determined, thanks to YouTube videos, to teach myself to play well enough to amaze family and friends. My new Stentor II is perfect for my needs.
