OVERVIEW

Educator endorsed.

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.

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!

    Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

    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.

    Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

    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.

    Bought for my daughter who's learning. Bought Dominant string as suggested. Still frequent tuning, but otherwise seems to be an adequate violin with good sound for beginners.

    Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

    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.

      • Student Level Instrument

      Comments about Stentor Student II Series Violin Outfit:

      As a beginner to "Old Time Fiddle" I needed a beginner level fiddle. My research and recommendations from two teachers led me to the Stentor Student II. After a few days of acclimation, it stayed in tune between practices and thus far I have no complaints. Even though it is considered a student violin, I will probably keep it for years.

        I was very hesitant about buying this violin. i was on a budget and I regretted not being able to buy the Roth I wanted. Then i played against a Roth. They were envious of mine. This Violin holds a beautiful velvet sound. its pure and translucent. Holding its tuning very well and the more you play it- the better it gets. I have been offered a Roth since. and i refused. I love my baby

                    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.
