The perfect companion for getting started

The Stentor Student II violin is the ideal instrument for students who want to kick-start their violin career with a high-quality instrument. The Stentor violin is carefully crafted by hand from various solid woods, so that each individual instrument is unique. The body and neck of the instrument are made of maple, the top from spruce, and the tuning pegs and fingerboard are both made of ebony, while the chinrest is crafted using hardwood. The result of this fine selection is a very well-defined sound that radiates depth and warmth. To simplify tuning, the tailpiece, which is made of a composite material, has four fine-tuners. The included wooden bow is strung with carefully selected natural horsehair that converges on an ebony frog. In combination with the supplied gig bag, this instrument is the perfect partner for entering the wonderful world of violin music.

A focus on quality

The tonewoods that form the basis of instrument making are dried for at least three years before being processed to ensure quality, stability, and above all a great sound. Stentor uses only natural adhesives to glue its many components, so that repairs can be carried out without hassle in the future - artificial adhesives cannot normally be removed in a precise manner. During production, all individual parts are marked, sawn to size, planed, and glued by hand. In order to guarantee the tonal quality of the final product, the thickness and quality of the material are re-measured repeatedly at numerous positions and at various stages of the manufacturing process.

Sometimes size does matter

Thanks to its great sound and manufacturing quality, the Stentor Student II violin is not only suitable for beginners, but because of its size it will probably be most popular among them. The half-sized violin is suitable for players over 1,25m tall or with an arm length of at least 50cm (if in doubt, ask an experienced violinist for a personal assessment). This violin comes with everything you need (bow and gig bag with separate material compartment), which makes it particularly interesting for price-conscious yet ambitious (aspiring) violinists.

About Stentor

Stentor is a UK-based world leading manufacturer of stringed instruments. Thanks to their easy playability and good sound, Stentor violins, violas, cellos, and double basses are widely recommended to their students by music schools and instrument teachers everywhere. The product range extends from beginner to professional-level instruments. For more than five decades, Stentor’s violin makers have been continuously developing and improving their instruments and have always consulted music teachers while doing so. And their success cannot be ignored: Over half a million musicians began their musical careers with a Stentor instrument.

"I can do more than Classical music!"

The rumour that the violin is an instrument only suitable for Classical music has been outdated ever since David Garrett hit the stage. The violin, needless to say, originated in a time long before the invention of musicals and film music - but that is exactly where it fits in perfectly nowadays, just as much as it does in chamber music, in the orchestra, in folk and dance music and, of course, as a solo instrument! As it has had a major influence on the development of many of these musical genres (and still does), there is a great deal of literature dedicated to it. With this Stentor violin set, the gates to the world of violin music are wide open.

No Regrets

Got this for my granddaughter as a gift for her 9th birthday in a size larger as she has outgrown her first violin.
My anxiety disappeared when excitedly embraced her present. It was beautiful and sounded much better than her last violin. Clearly, she’s now more motivated to play and cradles the violin with pride and love.

Good for
pagunta 09.01.2019
we have bought first one (i.e Stentor SR1500 Violin Student II 1/2) for my son which was very good.
Otherwise a nice violin for the beginners and as well as for the middle stage, but not for the experts.
we have bought the second one (same model) since first one is broken by bad handling.

Good for small fingers
Mechak 27.04.2024
The violin was actually good, but I wouldn’t recommend this. If you have fake fingers like I did the sound quality was very pleasant and as well as the overall layout of the violin it was well about the bridge that was very fragile. I remember when I use the silencer to practice the bridge was not really holding well the bones too short but it definitely works so if you’re not looking for it say professional violin the boat just perfect and therefore I will not boat me anyway so therefore I would Actually, recommend this if you were beginner and you’re looking for very small small but if you’re big boy better one should be better

Edullinen oppilasviulu aloittelijalle
Panu M. 29.07.2015
9-vuotias tyttäreni aloitti vuosi sitten viulunsoiton Stentorilla. Olen itse soittanut viulua lähes 40 vuotta (vain harrastelijatasolla, mutta lähes päivittäin) ja hämmästyin, että tuolla rahalla saa ihan toimivan soittopelin. Ääntä ei kannata verrata isompaan viuluun, mutta kyllä tästäkin ääntä saa ulos riittävästi ja viulun sointi on ihan ok - ei mitenkään epämiellyttävä, vaikka hyvän kokoviulun resonansseja soundista puuttuukin. Lisäksi viulu on kauttaaltaan siistiä työtä, viritystapit toimivat asiallisesti ja lakkaus on tasainen.
Viulun mukana tulee kaikki pikkuviulistin tarvitsema hartsia myöten, on pikavirittimet ja jousikin on ihan asiallinen. Viininpunainen kotelo on todella kevyt, mutta riittävän tukeva suojaamaan viulua vaikka ajattelemattomalta päälleistumiselta (nähty näin tapahtuvan). Kokonaisuutena loistava valinta koulun ensiluokilla olevan lapsen ensiviuluksi.
