A great tool

Joachim875, 15.02.2011

Zum Bogen: Durch eine ordentliche akustische Violine vorbelastet verwende ich diesen nach ersten Tests nicht mehr. Er ist mir zu weich. Er reicht sicher für das erste Jahr, aber dann sollte man einen Hunderter für was ordentliches einplanen.

Über den Kopfhörer: Ging bereits nach 2 Tagen kaputt - Lötstelle löste sich, und das Kabel stellte sich als unlötbar heraus. War mir aber auch egal, denn genügend ohnehin wertigeres ist hier vorhanden. Aber Achtung: Es taugt kein ohrumschließender Kopfhörer (mit einem solchen kann man keine Fidel mehr halten!), und das Kabel sollte entweder gen Rücken wandern, oder aber nur rechts aus diesem gehen (sonst hat man das Kabel zwischen Kinn und Kinnhalter, und nicht alle Kopfhörer lassen sich auch seitenvertauscht aufsetzen). Ich versuche nun In Ears.

Der Koffer: Ordentlicher Standard. Heutzutage haben diese leider Drehklips für den Bogen - ich fand die früheren Einrast-Klips am Bogenende deutlich besser (statt den Bogen am Bogenhaar zu befestigen). Was allen üblichen Koffern fehlt: Platz für eine Schulterstütze.

Das Set: Natürlich müssen Saiten zunächst gestimmt, und der Bogen kolophoniert werden. Auspacken und loslegen geht also nicht - daran ist erst nach etwas Fleiß am Tag darauf zu denken." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="The Fidel prepares joy and is fun - and price performance is outstanding. One should, however, be aware that an E-violin for others is quieter, but not silent. <br><br> The Fidel itself: Absolutely successful optics - one likes to use this instrument. But would like to pay more for a more careful processing (varnish, fits for vertebra). Regarding strings, I recommend a clear upgrade - Pirastro Tonica, for example, fit perfectly to this violin: blades are much better and play more pleasantly. Also the bridge needs a revision for me: the roundness is too flat, so it is sometimes quite difficult to play the D or A string without letting the neighboring resonate. Likewise, my chin holder was exchanged for a more acceptable model. And a shoulder rest is also added to the cost of this set. Anyway, every Fidel you have to adjust in my opinion. However, you have to take the weight that is too high. <br><br> Shadows Pickup: Its sound quality I feel as surprisingly good.

It certainly is enough for the first year, but then one should plan a hundredth for something decent. <br><br> About the headphones: Went already broken after 2 days - soldered soldering, and the cable turned out as un solderable. But I did not care, because there is enough more valuable here. But be careful: No ear-budding headphones (with this one can not hold any Fidel more!), And the cable should either go back to the back, or go only to the right from this (otherwise the cable between the chin and the chinrest, and not All headphones can also be replaced on the side).

After a few months of use

David8818, 18.02.2014
Beginner and self-taught, my opinion is worth what it is worth ...

I have just acquired another violin for pleasure, but I will keep the harley benton, which gives me still full satisfaction, apart from the rope of the ground which oddly does not want to sound as it should.

I specify that from the purchase, I changed all the strings, the original ones are quite average I find.

The great strength of this violin is the built-in preamp, its weakness comes from the also I think, because it is its weight ... even if there is worse :)
