A beautiful violin
Hyejin, 30.10.2019
This is my very first 'professional' violin as an adult beginner. I watched many many violin reviewing videos before I purchased this violin. It makes a very nice warm sound which I was looking for. There weren't that many reviews about this violin but I knew it was right in between the Stentor 1550 and the Stentor Student II. I wanted something that wasn't completely beginner but also not too professional. The color is absolutely beautiful, I was instantly in love. The case is also very nice as well with a lot of space (even a special spot for your shoulderrest). It includes a bow, the violin, a rosin and also a soft 'blanket' for your violin. When it arrives they've already set up your violin which is also very nice. I have been playing this violin with its factory strings and do not have any complaints about it. Only thing about this violin which was less nice is the fact that you might have trouble tuning it. So you either really need to push the pegs in to prevent it from turning back after tuning, or visit your luthier to fix it.

Overall a great violin.

Great quality for the price!!
Aashish, 11.10.2020
I needed a violin to start as an adult beginner. Having played the violin for a year as a kid I wanted something more than student violin. I had to choose between the Graduate and the Conservatoire as there is not much difference between the two. With fewer reviews regarding Graduate, it was quite the risk to go for it but finally, it paid off.
The build quality is very good and the finish is matt, unlike glossy which looks in the pictures. Also, the colour is lighter than what appears in the pictures. I have been practising on it for the last two weeks. It's a great violin to start considering the quality and the price you pay for it.

Good for the money

It's great at this price point. There are some unpolished places on the violin body, but does its job. Sounds decent.

ein wunderschönes Instrument mit tollem Klang
Stan Lee, 09.03.2021
Die Stentor Graduate Violine hat mich voll und ganz überzeugt mit einem sehr edlen Äußeren, klanglicher Qualität und guter Spielbarkeit. Es ist ein sehr schönes Instrument für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene. Semi- und Vollprofis greifen natürlich deutlich höher ins Regal, aber wer eine anständige Geige für das ernsthafte Musizieren als Hobby- oder Straßenmusiker sucht und nicht unbedingt das billigste haben will, der macht mit der Graduate eine sehr gute Wahl.

Die Verarbeitung ist bist auf ein paar kleine Lackflecken absolut gelungen. Alle Komponenten überzeugen durch gute Verarbeitung und Wertigkeit.

Der Klang ist trotz der einfachen Nylonsaiten schon vom Werk aus sehr gut abgestimmt. Die Daddario Prelude Saiten, die ich zusätzlich gekauft habe um den Klang zu verbessern, brauchte daher bisher nicht einmal aufziehen. Sie werden dann irgendwann zum Einsatz kommen, wenn die Werks-Saiten runtergespielt sind.

Die Wirbel lassen sich leicht einstellen und halten die Stimmung relativ lange, nachdem die Saiten erst einmal eingestimmt sind.

Der Feinstimm-Saitenhalter ist für den Preis okay, wirkt aber nicht super robust. Der Kinnhalter ist sehr schön und aus Ebenholz gefertigt, so wie das Griffbrett und die Wirbel.

Was ich für ein Update an dieser Violine empfehlen würde:

besseres Kolofonium - Geipel Rosin Antiallergic
einen besseren Bogen - Artino Violin Bow
eine gute Schulterstütze - Wolf Forte
daddario prelude Saiten oder Pirastro Tonika
first frets Aufkleber zum Lernen der Griffe
einen kleinen Übungsdämpfer
einen hochwertigen Steg von Aubert oder Teller

Ich bin insgesamt sehr zufrieden mit dem Instrument und würde diese Wahl immer wieder treffen. Für 200 Euro bekommt man keine schönere Violine. Man muss immer den Preis berücksichtigen, es ist natürlich kein Profi Instrument, macht aber als Laie und Hobbymusiker sehr viel Spaß.

Der Geigenkoffer ist sehr schön und edel verarbeitet für den Preis und bietet viel Platz, sogar für die Schulterstütze.
