          About Me Professional Musician

          Pros

            Cons

            • Poor Quality Craftsmanship
            • Requires Constant Tuning

            Best Uses

              Comments about Cremona SV-175 Violin Outfit:

              The quality of the violin was extremely poor, unplayable. The tuners are inept. A string may briefly maintain pitch, but likely not long enough to tune the others. 2 minutes out of the box and I've decided to return it.

              All i was looking for was a playable instrument, i will be testing others in person before replacing.

              Comments about Cremona SV-175 Violin Outfit:

              This fiddle will get you going. The sound is OK but not "performance level" of course. Just choose a shoulder rest to complete the outfit. I like it 'cause I can take it camping and won't be too upset if it gets damaged or lost. And don't believe the "hygrometer" in the case. I doubt that it runs 60% humidity here in the desert of Arizona! You might want to include a humidifier for the case if you live in the Southwest...if you're lookin' to start a child in music or you're a novice like myself, you can't go wrong with this one. I'm not sure how long it will last but by the time it falls apart I'll either be ready for a better one or will have given up on fiddle entirely!

                Use a quality rosin and this little gem gives an amazing rich, clear sound.

                      Cremona SV-175 Violin OutfitI'm an absolute beginner at the fiddle but i play a few other instruments so i feel like i can judge the quality of an instrument ok. That said, i am thoroughly impressed with this violin! It has nice tone, it stays in tune, it's beautiful and looks well made. The case that it comes with is also great. It has a nice storage space for accessories and a zip up pocket on the front for sheet music. One of the neatest things about it is that it has a hygrometer for measuring humidity. Very nice!I bought this violin with the idea that i could start out on it and see if i like playing the violin and then upgrade in the future. After having this for a couple of weeks i feel like it's going to take me a long way in my violin-playing endeavor and i don't expect to have to upgrade for a few years (if ever). The Cremona SV-175 Violin Outfit has exceeded my expectations.On a side note, the customer service and support at musician's friend are fantastic! I will be ordering again from them for all my future musical needs. :)

                      Great outfit!

                      from Texas

                      Comments about Cremona SV-175 Violin Outfit:

                      I just started playing violin (without a teacher) a week ago (when I received the violin), so I'm not an expert, but I've been a musician for over 4 years, and I know a little. It's a great looking violin (looks just like the product photos), there are a few spots missing varnish (on the scroll and neck, so you can't tell unless you look). The case is great, it has a soft outside and hard inside with a storage section and two bow holders, and a sheet music section on top. I don't know much about the bow's quality; it seems great to me, looks nice (has some pearl inlays), a few of the hairs are loose, but those can be clipped if necessary. I set the violin up myself with no problems; the only thing I had to do was install the bridge and tune it. Overall, I love it!
