            Good Beginner Violin!

                  Comments about Cremona SV-175 Violin Outfit:

                  This summer I made the spontaneous decision to buy and learn the violin. I'm 20 years old. I found this and bought it, not knowing *anything* about violins really. I was very pleased to say that it worked out well! The E string snapped after like 2 weeks, but that may be due to the fact that I was tuning it wrong. I bought a new E string and replaced it and all strings stay in tune perfectly now. The bow that comes with it is kind of heavy at the end, my teacher always complains about it but I got used to it fine, it just makes it harder to hold.
                  The case it comes with is beautiful and roomy and protective. The violin itself is beautiful!
                  I don't know much about violins so take what I say with a grain of salt, but this worked out great for me!!

                        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!

                                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. :)

                                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!
