    I searched all over physically and online for a decent beginning violin for a good price. I didn't have thousands to spend on each piece and the student instruments were still so expensive!! I took a chance on a "cheap" instrument, going somewhere mid range of the $75-200 price range I was researching.
    My final choice was between the Hoffman Amadeus from Shar and this Doreli 79, which I came across the night before I wanted to make my purchase. It was a last minute decision I feared I would regret, but I would suggest this instrument to ANY beginner! Though a novice, I've done my research and knew what to expect.
    This violin holds a tune very well, has a beautiful finish (minus a few minor paint or cosmetic issues), is made of good material, and has a beautiful sound. The bow is nice, though one hair is already loose (easy fix).
    Case is nice, rosin is good.
    I promise, I agonized over this for weeks, but I regret nothing about this decision!

    Doreli Violin - Model 79

    By Violin-Guy

    from Muskogee, OK

    About Me Experienced

    Pros

    • Beautiful Reddish Stain
    • Quality Craftsmanship

    Cons

    • Slightly Bad Varnishing

    Best Uses

      Comments about Doreli Model 79 Violin Outfit:

      I was delightfully surprised when I saw the reddish stain, which was just what I was hoping for and was one of the reasons I chose this model and brand. Some violins from other brands have a yellowish, greenish brown stain which I hate.

      The only flaws I have noticed is the slightly bad varnish job, here and there, which looks to have been machine sprayed, but not too bad. This could always be improved by the buyer who has had a little experience varnishing wood. It would only require a light bit of sanding, using very fine grade sandpaper, and then a single coat of quality varnish. This model seems to have a satin finish, but one could use a semi-gloss or gloss varnish, if they prefer.

                  Thanks for what seems another good musician's friend instrument. Musician's Friend has shown me great custumer service through the years that I have ordered from them. This beginning student violin will serve my son well as he begins 5th grade orchestra. Sure helps with our family finances over the yearly school rental fee of a 1/2 violin. I'm confident it will hold up until a year or two when he will need a bigger size....worked well for my other son who we bought a cello for from Musicians Friend two years ago---no problems and we have saved lots in not renting a 3/4 cello for two years and it's nice to know he owns his.

                    This is my first fiddle. I can't really say that it's easy to play but after a couple of weeks, I really think I can get the hang of it. Package come with a case which is an added bonus for transporting the fiddle. The bow seems to be working out well and produces sound. The fiddle came Tuned but it was tuned to the wrong octave which confused me at first. It took me a week to figure out that it wasn't a defective violin. It was just tuned way too deep . Over all it really hasn't taken too long to get the bowing of the strings down. I have already learned four songs. I would defiantly recommend this fiddle to someone who is starting to play fiddle, all I have to say is to stick with it. You'll be surprised how far you'll come in just a matter weeks!

                    Comments about Doreli Model 79 Violin Outfit:

                    I've had this violin for awhile now, so I feel fairly comfortable listing it's pros and cons. It's well made and has a decent tone. The default strings make the violin sound a little bright/metallic (especially around the E string) - I recommend a set of Dominants with a mellow sounding E-String to obtain a more pleasent sound. The accompanying bow didn't hold up for long. The violin can be difficult to tune - you really have to cram the pegs in there - but the micro-tuners help. Humidity changes will cause the violin to go flat or sharp (as with most tunable instruments), but here again the microtuners come in handy. You will probably need to adjust the bridge a bit. This violin is definitely playable, and with practice you can produce tones that don't sound like a dying cat. It is a good purchase for the money and has held together well over the last year or so. If you find that you like playing the violin you may ultimately want something better, but this is not a bad starter instrument, and with better strings it can sound nice.

                        Purchased the 1/8 size for my 6 year old and was delighted with the sound quality of this instrument!!! He has taken lessons for 3 months now and his teacher and I are both impressed with the quality, sound and its ability to stay in tune.

                        Ordering was easy and shipping was fast.

                        We are very happy with our purchase!

                        Light weight and easy to use and transport. Durable case with shoulder straps. Perfect for a beginner, but will need continuous tuning at first because it doesn't stay in tune well until it is broken in. Contains violin, bow and rosin. No extra strings, no shoulder pad.
