Best student violin!
Jagz 18.09.2020
This violin was recommended by online teachers and students alike, and for the few extra pounds, its worth getting the student 2 over the student 1. I also spruced mine up with a set of dominant strings, but its honestly not necessary and plays great with the standard strings it ships with. It is important to understand that in order to learn, progress and advance as a student violinist, you need your instrument to be able to sing for you - if you are fighting with your instrument to make it sound somewhat like it should (tuning every session or non resonant sounds on certain scales) then it will be difficult to progress - this violin won't fail you, and instead you can work on what YOU are doing wrong instead of figuring out what's wrong with your violin. Don't make the same mistake that I did and buy a "violin shaped object" as a non committal way of deciding if you want to learn to play. Buy one of these, and if you decide not to continue, i guarantee there will be someone out there who will buy it from you in new condition elsewhere!

Best quality/price for beginner adult, but be reasonable for this money
Deniss M 09.01.2020
I played Stentor SR 1400 aka Stentor Student I for some months and Stentor II is bit better, price difference of some 10€ is worth it. Stentor I is more suitable for little hands, kids, it's like small step down. My recommendation for adults is Stentor II.
Case and bow is also totally ok, can't complain.
Sound is not perfectly clear, but good (keep the price in mind).
Pegs keep tuned, ok, no problem. Bridge is in place, ok.
Laquer, finishing is very satisfying. Violing and bow are looking decent, really good, no coplaint. No scratches etc, quality is good.
Strings are playable, cant's say good, but don't have to change immediatly, at your will.
Of course, this set is only for beginners, not even for intermediate.
But it's lot's better than, for example Gewa Pure Violinset HW 4/4, don't enen think about it, it's terrible, tried it.
Don't know about Hidersine Studenti, was also considering this. And Roth&Junius Europe Student. Last one was strongly recommended by Thomann advisors, but is 100€ more expencive... If you're looking for sth more quality, maybe better choice, because made in Europe (like said in Romania vs Stentor in China), worth to try.

Great little fiddle!!
Podger 09.08.2021
I bought this for a student and was expecting much lower quality for this price.
It sounds good, it feels good and stays in tune.
The bow is also quite nice for the price.
The fine adjusters are a little stiff but they work.
This is an excellent choice for a beginner or even a second fiddle for gigging. It's not going to be a professionals first choice but for what it is, it's Ideal.

Had to reshape the bridge but overall sound quality really good!
Daphne G. 09.02.2020
I have been playing on my Stentor 2 for 1.5 years now. I must say it never ceases to amaze me. I have been told that the sound quality is unexpectedly good for a violin in this price range and it responds well to sound projection.
My only complain about the violin would be that i had to lower the bridge a bit to make it actually playable. The strings it came with only hold up for 3 months of beginner violin playing. The bow it came with is not that good, which is expected. And i had to make the case repaired after a year of carrying the violin around. (It was tearing from the point where the straps were attached at the violin)
I have no regrets regarding my decision to pick up Stentor 2 and start learning the violin. It offers everything you could ask of from a student violin, and much more!
