This is the 3rd Stentor SR1500 I have bought for my daughter and the 2nd from Thomann. My only problem with them is that she has out grown the (previous) smaller sizes.
It is a great violin and bow for a learner, better built than the cheaper violins, but not in the mega bucks range where you have to worry to much about it getting bashed at school etc.
I bought Dominant strings with it and left a short message in the order message box for the Violin to be setup with them. I remember Thomann once offered this service, but could not fund anything about it on the current website. To my delight the violin arrived strung with the Dominant strings and the old strings stuck in the Dominant box.
Thanks for the great service,
