Why rent when you can own?
Samuel Thompson –
This viola over all for the price was fantastic…HOWEVER…Remember that you ARE buying a viola that will be shipped to you IN a TRUCK…where it will be tossed about and the tuning pegs and the strings will probably come undone…
Now I already play a ukulele and a mandolin and a guitar so for me to put the tuning pegs and strings back on was no big deal. But for someone who has never owned an instrument before they will need someone who can help them to make sure it works…
It’s a good violin, especially for a beginner, comes with great accessories but I would replace the rosin with a better quality rosin like hill it will sound better.
Also, I found that the tuning pegs were better after I tapped them (lightly!) with a hammer to keep them in tighter…this greatly helped with the tuning process.
I’m still giving this product five stars because it’s price means that it is possible for someone on a strict budget can still afford a viola where as before it would have been impossible especially as the next cheapest viola can go for $600 or more…
