      OVERVIEW

      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!

      I practically only heard good reviews about this product, so I thought I would try it out. I was not pleased with it because it does a horrible job of staying in tune. Out-of-tune violins was why I quit playing in the first place, several years ago. This violin does not stay in tune, and even un-tunes itself AS you are playing. For a beginner that is a huge discouragement and not a great motivation to pick it up every day. I wasted a lot of my "playing time" trying to retune it.

          Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

          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.

            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.

                        Arrived in perfect condition. Purchased for my wife when she said she wanted to play. I play banjo but may also try this. Had some musician/luthier freinds check it out. they were impressed with the quality and sound. Made a slight adjustment to the string height at the nut. Always relieved when a "purchase by internet recommendation" works out. well worth the money.

                          It is a good bargain considering the price and quality. But the Stentor II violin I got has loose pegs. The pegs for D and E strings wouldn't stay when I tried to adjust them....

                                Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

                                I'm a percussionist and I've played in lots of country bands, as well as symphony orchestras. I decided to learn to play country fiddle. I've been playing for about 6 months on this thing so far and it's doing great. At first, the pegs slipped a lot and the tuning wouldn't hold for long, but now that the pegs have had some time out of the box, they're starting to hold to where I just have to fine tune a little before playing with the band. About once a month, I have to release the fine tuners and retune from the pegs, but that's fine with me. For the price, this is an excellent instrument and it does the job great. The bow hasn't broken or bent, and the synthetic hair still holds together, despite the fast hard double stops I play on it. :) I give it two thumbs way up and highly recommend it, espcially for practice. Comes with rosin which is nice, and the case is well-built. (I've left the case out with the instrument inside and my 3 and 5 year odl stodd on it and it didn't buckle.)
