Only usable after replacing parts. Still a good value for money after tweaking.

mrodrigues, 05.01.2018
I'm a violin student and already own a medium level instrument and was only looking for a way to study quietly at night.
I was a bit disappointed with the overall quality and usability of the violin. Honestly the strings that came on the violin are really bad sounding, two violin pegs had small cracks and the tailpiece was totally useless. At first I didn't really liked the overall tone of the violin and replaced strings only to realise that the tuning pegs were really difficult to use and that the screws on the tailpiece were so small and stiff that I couldn't actually use them. Needless to say that I was not able to play or use the violin out of the box. At this price point I bought a new high end tailpiece, new pegs and a good set of strings. As I have adjusted the pegs myself speeded additional 35¤ on tailpiece and pegs and 36¤ on new strings. Right now I must say that the violin is quite nice, easy to play and stay in tune and I even like the sound without earphones (wich I use to practice late night), and trough the earphones. I watched one other review stating that the sound had some noise in it, but if the level is kept in the middle it's ok. My review is 3 stars, (out of the box is actually 1 or 2), only because even with the additional amount of money spent, in the end I'm still very much below the price point of high end silent violins, and I didn't wanted to spend 500+¤ on a practice at night violin.

Good sounds for cheap violin

26.04.2016
It's a nice violin to practice in my room, even at night. No one next to my door will hear this violin.

I never play an electric violin before, so I cannot compare it with other electric violins. I used to play an acoustic violin and sometimes I use a violin pick-up for the sound system. For the music I play, I think my acoustic violin sounds slightly better, but the electric violin is a big advantage for me to have more flexible time to practice at night.

Another big advantage for me is that I can combine the sound of my violin and my favourite MP3 because there is an aux input to the violin. :-)

The battery compartment is not bad. I think it's a bit too small for the size of battery. I never close it because it always opened by itself right after I close it. The batter never comes out of the compartment although I didn't close it. So it's not a problem.
