  • The Best Choice of Violin for a Beginner

If you want a headstart on any new musical instrument, it is best to start with a reliable instrument that has a good tone. You want to make sure that the violin is set up and the bridge is correctly fitted.  With so much choice available, we have narrowed it down to quality and value.

Stentor sell more violins than any other company in the world. For over 100 years they have been providing violins for students. Stentor violins are made in a workshop environment in much the same way as they have been in Europe for hundreds of years, and they oversee each part of the production.

Crescendo sells the Stentor Student 2 violins which are available in different sizes, making them suitable for children and adults. Hand carved from solid tonewoods and with ebony pegs each comes fully set up ready to play with a horsehair bow and has a lightweight carrying case.

Eastman violins from Crescendo Music have received praise from teachers and schools for their unparalleled quality of sound and playability. Each instrument is individually set up with new strings, improved bridge, tailpiece and pegs. The range of Eastmans start with an affordable student model which is available in part sizes through to the full size violin.

Crescendo Music has violins suitable for beginners, along with shoulder rests, bows, rosin, cases and cleaning materials. A full range of violin learning books is available. Repairs and rehairing of bows is undertaken.
