The complete package for beginners
In terms of value for money, the Thomann Classic Violin Set is one of the best sets of its kind currently on the market. A special feature of the violin included in this set is the fact that it is made from solid wood despite its low price. The top of the violin is made of softwood spruce, while the back, sides, and neck are made of hard maple. Ever since Stradivarius, this combination of tonewoods has been the first choice for making bowed string instruments. The fingerboard is made of ebony and is also solid - which is not to be taken for granted in this price category. The chin rest consists of a composite material made of carbon and synthetic fibres, which compared to wooden chin rests has advantages in terms of stability and weight. The body of the instrument is finished in matt lacquer.
Always completely in tune…
...and when that is the case, you will hit the right note with musicians and listeners alike. To prevent any troublesome tuning issues, the instrument is equipped with four fine-tuners on the tailpiece, which makes the tuning process much easier. A clean playing style is still recommended, of course, but a well-tuned instrument with good tuning stability is half the battle. For this reason, each violin receives a proper setup by the specialists in Thomann’s stringed instrument workshop before it is shipped.
For those who want it all
The 4/4 violin, or “full-size violin”, is usually recommended for players who are 150cm (4’ 9”) or taller or who have an arm length of 60cm (24”) or more. In case of doubt, we recommend consulting an experienced violinist. However, having a violin alone is not enough to “fiddle”: In most cases, you also need a bow and rosin (violin resin) ensuring the bow “sticks” to the strings a little, because without adhesion there is no vibration, and thus no sound. In order to facilitate carrying your new instrument and its accessories, the violin comes stowed securely in a case with shoulder straps. This set is ideal for those who want it all but don't have anything yet.
About Thomann string instruments
Thomann-brand instruments, which are exclusively built by renowned manufacturers, now constitute a large part of Thomann’s product range alongside numerous big-name brands. With unbeatable price-performance ratios, Thomann string instruments are the obvious first choice for students and beginners – and others too. The technical features and uncompromising sound quality they offer are usually reserved for much more expensive instruments found in the professional market segment.
More than just a Classical instrument
The rumour that the violin is an instrument only suitable for Classical music has been outdated at least since David Garrett. Of course, this fable has its origins in a time long before the invention of musical and film scores – nevertheless, it also feels at home in chamber music, orchestras, in folk and dance music, and of course as a solo instrument! Since it has played (and still plays) a significant role in the development of many of these styles, it is accordingly richly endowed with literature. This student violin set from Thomann opens the doors to the world of violin music.
