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 good violin for beginners with a small budget. The violin arrived next day and fully intact, and packaged very well and with all the items. The actual violin comes set up apart from the bridge which is very easy to set up (I asked my violin teacher and she said it is meant to come with the bridge down!). The violin at first is definitely going to go out of tune because it has to settle down because it is new, after it has settled it will stay in tune fine (and when tuning you have to push the peg in and turn at the same time). The sound quality is quite good for a violin of this price. The colour and finish of it is quite good (as shown in my pictures). The bow is of good quality, and the case is very good and you actually get dark green velvet on the inside of the case, there is also a nice little space for you rosin. I would definitely recommend to a beginner violin player. Me gusta mucho!

This is amazing value. OK, it's not a Strad, but as a starter kit, it's a cracker. Full sized piece of kit, with good quality case , a horsehair bow and tin if roisin. Seriously, what more do people want? It was a gift. The recipient was delighted. Invested some time setting up the bridge and waxing the bow, thereafter, the rewards were audible. I'm no violin cognoscenti. Truth be known, it's not my favourite sound, but even to my ear, the difference once the bridge and bow were sorted was amazing. In the hands of the right person, this little beauty can now belt out anything from a few classics to (far more welcome) jigs and offbeat string. In fact, I'm tempted to take it up myself!

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.

Bear in mind that you can spend anything from £40 to £40,000 for a Violin, this is definitely at the budget end of the range of possibilites, so don't expect inlaid mahogony trim or solid ivory pegs... :-) You can spend more than this violin on a set of strings.

What you get is a basic violin, bow, rosin and case, everything you need to start learing to play. The violin is not setup so you need to install the bridge and tune it up, but I would expect that of any mail-order violin. Go and watch some videos on YouTube if you don't know how to do it, or ask an expert. It took me a couple of goes to get the bridge in the right place so it sounded ok, The strings are new so they will stretch for a bit and to avoid breakage you probably sholdn't try and tighted everything up right away. Remember that this is a fragile musical instrument and needs to be treated as such.

The bow appears to be genuine horsehair and reasonble quality for a beginner once you have some rosin on it. (cetainly a lot better than some plastic hair bows I have encountered).

This is probably not suitable for a concert musician, but for someone who is learning, it's ideal and great value for money.
