Amazing instrument
Santiene, 28.07.2019
The violin has an amazing warm and full tone but still has that Sparkling sound that I want in a violin. It looks very beautiful with the varnish not to shiny, I think is also the varnish that makes the tone so much warmer then you hear on other violins. The violin has Pirastro strings on it. It would have been nice if the description tells what type they are, and I am wondering if the violin will sound better if I put Thomastik strings on it. But for now I do not feel the need to replace the strings. The sound is beautiful as it is now. I have the feeling that I have a professional violin with this one and I think I won't have to upgrade for years.

very satisfactory
xiaoxu, 28.04.2019
wow, the shipment is very quick. Thank Thomann.
This violin is easy to play and the strings is very soft to press. Vibrato become easy at first positon. Espcially, the sound is very clean even if at highest positions. The tone is not easy to be reviewed for I did not change the strings yet. I only can say the sound is not sweet. I am not sure whether the sound will get sweet when using better strings. But I am very satisfied with this violin at this price.

Schöne Geige
07.12.2016
Aussehen: Sehr schöne Farbgebung, wenn auch etwas heller, als auf der Webseite zu sehen. Makellose Verarbeitung, leicht matter Glanz.
Funktion: Die Wirbel lassen sich einfach drehen und halten die Stimmung sehr gut. Eine dezente Markierung hilft bei der Positionierung des Stegs. Mir persönlich gefällt, dass nur für die E-Saite ein Feinstimmer angebracht ist.
Klang: Die mitgelieferten Saiten sind laut Beschreibung Pirastro-Saiten, vermutlich von der günstigeren Sorte - Detailangaben fehlen. Damit klingt die Stentor klar und laut, in den oberen Lagen wirklich fein. Die Bässe sind für mein Gefühl noch ausbaufähig, aber die Geige ist nagelneu und muss erst eingespielt werden. Außerdem sollte man wohl verschiedene Saiten testen. Das gesamte Klangspektrum gefällt mir sehr gut, es gibt keinen Wolf und auch kein Klirren.
Fazit: Ich spiele vor allem schottische und irische Fiddle-Tunes, und dafür ist die Stentor meiner Meinung nach sehr gut geeignet. Ob sie auch für klassische Literatur taugt, kann ich leider nicht beurteilen.

Stentor Violin Arcadia Antik
Adonais, 04.12.2017
Il violino si presenta di ottima fattura, ben curato, e la finitura anticata gli dona un fascino fuori dal tempo. il suono è ricco di armonici, forte e deciso, con una elevata espandibilità. Eccellente rapporto qualità/prezzo. Adatto per studenti esigenti e giovani professionisti. Personalmente Stupendo!!!
