Product Description

Size Name: 1/4 SIZE | Style Name: VIOLIN ONLY

The Windsor violin is the perfect instrument for students and will last most up to Grade 5 standard.

With a spruce top, ebony coloured tuning pegs and fingerboard and fine tuning adjusters, it produces a bright tone and comes complete with a wood/horsehair bow, plush lined lightweight case and rosin.

The Windsor violin is available in 4 sizes, either to purchase on its own or with an accompanying Absolute Beginners Violin book.

To avoid damage in transportation, the bridge will be down but can be easily set up with the help of the included owner guide which will also assist with tuning and bow care.

I bought this to send to Italy so that I could practice whilst away. I didn't have any hopes that it would be any good given that I normally play a far more expensive instrument. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of set up, decent tone and all round quality of this violin. Beginners beware the time taken to put enough of the rosin on the bow to get the violin to make any noise whatsoever - it took me 20 minutes of continuous application.

I left the violin behind at the end of the week and was sorry to do so. At £40 including case, bow and rosin it's a steal.

I have no issues issues with the instrument itself...this violin is perfectly adequate for a 6/7 year-old beginner, which is precisely what it was designed for.

However, watch out for the flowery product description above. Where it states 'The sound post will be in position, and the strings shall be tensioned and tuned with the bridge in place' be aware that this is not true. We had to assemble ours with no instructions whatsoever. Lucky we have a violin player in the family who could advise.

Amazon should really takes steps to correct the description.

Otherwise, pleased with our purchase.

Style Name: VIOLIN ONLYSize: FULL SIZE
My son actually bought the exact same violin from elsewhere (though I wish he'd bought it from here as it's cheaper) but when I saw it here I couldn't resist saying that this violin is surprisingly not bad at all.

Obviously its not concert level standard but for a beginner its sound is quite good. You do have to make sure you check the tuning each time you play because obiously new strings stretch.

The bow is raw when you get it and is horse hair. We were getting frustrated with rosin the bow after 25 minutes and getting nowhere..., until I remembered a trick from years ago when I used to play - use a nail file to rough up the rosin - after that it took a few minutes to get the bow in working order.

Overall it's a nice beginners violin outfit. Definitely recommend it.

My son also got some good tips and understanding from youtube videos made by a woman called "the piano and violin tutor" which are really good, esp as she is a real teacher.

The Violin was shipped very quickly. The Bridge was not fitted but this was expected as the Strings are loose during shipping so its not possible to hold the Bridge up. The Violin is exactly what it is. An entry level Violin that when set-up has a good sound. My son loves it and would recommend for first time Violin students for the cost.

I ordered the violin on the 31st of January, 2013 and it was dispatched the same day. It arrived on 2 February 2013 - and delivery was FREE!!

The shipping carton was very secure and robust. The violin was exactly as described and came with a very serviceable case, a bow, and some rosin. Also very useful was a two page document, "Essential Beginner's Guide . . . Violin," which included, among other things, a help phone number, a website address for lessons, and precise instructions for preparing the bow, tuning the violin, and setting the bridge.

The violin comes with the strings loose, so you must set up the bridge. Thanks to the exceptionally clear instructions and photographs, I was able to set the bridge like a professional within a few minutes. I have read that others have had trouble doing this, but believe me, it is a very simple and straightforward operation.

The thing that takes the most time is rosining up the bow for the first time. There is no way around this, and the detailed instructions let you know that it will take a 10 minutes of [boring] rubbing. The rosin was kind of hard, so I popped it into the microwave for a bit, and that softened it slightly. It is up to you whether you want to buy other, softer, rosin.

As the strings are new, they will stretch [I play the guitar so I understand about new strings] so they need to be tuned frequently for a while until they are stabilized.

Overall, I must give this company an excellent rating - dispatch the same day ordered, arrived two days later, and no delivery charge. Most importantly, the violin sounds fine, and everything works well.

And, come on, can you really beat this price?

Well done, Windsor! Top marks!!

this is a violin suitable for those who are not sure whether or not they want to take it up. the bow that arrived was scraggly but i just pulled off any loose hairs- it still played fine. this instrument purely helped me decide whether or not i would be happy to buy a more expensive beginner's violin, whether or not i'm the sort of person who would happily study and practise how to play and if i'm happy with the positioning of such an instrument (whether i think my body type is suitable). i would much rather pay the £30 i spent on this than go straight into a violin costing £200 only to find i don't enjoy the instrument.

Style Name: VIOLIN ONLYSize: 1/2 SIZE
A complete violin, with a hard zipped case, great for 7-10 years old, my daughter has progressed really well with this violin and has now moved on to the next size up, The strings and the bridge were loose upon delivery but her music teacher tuned the violin without any problems. A great violin for beginners and at a price that is sensible for a new hobby.
