Only usable after replacing parts. Still a good value for money after tweaking.

I'm a violin student and already own a medium level instrument and was only looking for a way to study quietly at night.
I was a bit disappointed with the overall quality and usability of the violin. Honestly the strings that came on the violin are really bad sounding, two violin pegs had small cracks and the tailpiece was totally useless. At first I didn't really liked the overall tone of the violin and replaced strings only to realise that the tuning pegs were really difficult to use and that the screws on the tailpiece were so small and stiff that I couldn't actually use them. Needless to say that I was not able to play or use the violin out of the box. At this price point I bought a new high end tailpiece, new pegs and a good set of strings. As I have adjusted the pegs myself speeded additional 35¤ on tailpiece and pegs and 36¤ on new strings. Right now I must say that the violin is quite nice, easy to play and stay in tune and I even like the sound without earphones (wich I use to practice late night), and trough the earphones. I watched one other review stating that the sound had some noise in it, but if the level is kept in the middle it's ok. My review is 3 stars, (out of the box is actually 1 or 2), only because even with the additional amount of money spent, in the end I'm still very much below the price point of high end silent violins, and I didn't wanted to spend 500+¤ on a practice at night violin.

This was a Christmas present for my daughter and I couldn't have been more delighted with the purchase. My daughter loves playing it, the visual and sound quality are both excellent. This was my first purchase from Thomann and they made it a very easy and enjoyable process. Thank you.
