This violin was highly recommended by Alison Sparrow, a professional violinist and teacher better known as The Online Piano and Violin Tutor.
For the money, it is a great value, great tone and is made from select tonewoods. It is very affordable. Comes with a nice case, and a real horsetail
bow. Alison recommends upgrading the strings to Dominants to really make the tone come out. I really like the feel of this violin and the sound is really good. For the money, you cant go wrong.

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:

      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.)

                I was amazed that the violin was completely set up and ready to go. I just put the tuning on it and rosined up the bow. Now I am working on my rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.Very happy. Even the sound post was perfectly adjusted. Good quality strings. Holds tune very well.

                Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

                I was a bit apprehensive about getting this violin at first. My original intention was to get a Ricard Brunell from Kennedy Violins but I didn't have a lot of money to blow on a student instrument. But I am very happy that I got this one!! Like many others here, I had heard of it from Allison Sparrow the Online Piano and Violin Tutor. I have no regrets about it. The only thing I didn't care for was what seemed to be peg slippage and poor strings. So I put Dominants on them and got some peg compound for cheap. Easy fix. Sounds great, and I love it!

                  I'm not a violinist, but am an experienced guitarist with around 20 years experience. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship of this instrument & don't see how they can sell it for this price & make a profit. The tuning pegs will need to be correctly fitted, but it actually already holds tune fairly well. It's a very beautiful and well built instrument.

                  bought this for my son. He had played violin about 3 years. He already had another good quality violin, but needed a less expensive one for back up to use at school. He really liked the sound of the Stentor II. It's not bad. It came with red label super sensitive strings and they cost about fifteen a set. Strings sounded good, can't complain much. A super value, good quality for a student violin.

                  I love my Stentor II Violin. The main reason I decided to buy the Stentor II was Alison Sparrow the Online Piano and Violin Tutor recommended it so highly & I watched her perform playing one. When I bow smoothly ( I am a novice) the sound out of this little instrument is absolutely amazing. It comes with a decent case and a nice bow. I recommend changeing strings to the Dominants right away. I will continue playing this violin for some time to come and would recommend the Stentor Two anyone.
