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 four pegs are made of ebony, and the body of the instrument, which comes complete with a wooden chinrest, 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 150 cm (4’ 9”) or taller or who have an arm length of 60 cm (24”) or more. In case of doubt, we recommend consulting an experienced violinist. For actual "violin playing", however, the violin alone is not enough: In almost all cases, you also need a bow and rosin (violin resin) to ensure that the bow "sticks" a little to the strings, because without adhesion there is no vibration and thus no sound. All these components are included in the Thomann Classic Violin Set and are supplied directly with the instrument. You don't have to carry everything individually, as the components are neatly stowed in a case that features backpack straps, ensuring that the instrument and its accessories can easily be transported. The set is ideal for all those who need everything but have not yet acquired any violin accessories at all.

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 popular opinion that the violin is an instrument only suitable for Classical music has been outdated since David Garrett. Of course, this fable has its origins in a time long before musicals and film scores, but that is precisely where the violin also makes itself at home today – in addition to chamber music, orchestras, music, dance music, and of course as a solo instrument! Since it has had a considerable influence on the development of many of these styles (and continues to do so), it is accordingly richly endowed with literature. This beginner's set opens the doors to the world of violin music. And once you have dived in, you will realise: There is an awful lot to discover...

Excellent as a beginner violin

This comes with everything you will need to start playing the violin. I am a complete beginner so I can't say the exact quality in terms of sound produced by the instrument but from a beginner's point of view it is perfect.

It comes with the violin itself, a good quality case, a bow, rosin, and a shoulder rest. It has allows me to get started using this product straight away.

The instrument came fully set up and stringed and almost in tune. Just be aware that this adds a day or two to delivery times (at least it did in my case) as the violin first went to Thomann's strings section to set up. This very slight delay was fully worth it though as I could take it out of the box, make some very minor adjustments to tuning, and start playing (albeit very badly as I am a complete beginner but that is me not the instrument).

The shipping time was very good and the packaging it came in was perfect. I had one or two question for Thomann and the customer service was excellent.

All in all I would highly recommend this to anyone who is starting off. The service, quality, and value is excellent. I know there are much better quality violins available at much higher price points but for someone who is starting to play this is ideal.

Good value for this price
Constantin de Est 04.12.2019
I have this violin for 3 months and I used it daily as a teaching instrument / for playing in rough conditions: it does the job greatly! It came fully prepared for playing, I only needed to tune it
pro:
very clean, honest and strong construction (no Stradivarius, but in no case a bazar toy).
cons:
I feel the initial strings are very poor (cheap) and the included bow feels pretty 'synthetic' (but, then... again: very good value for the price!)

im a beginner violinist and this is my first violin and i dont really have a teacher just a friend who i ask for help sometimes because im new to this she started learning violin at the age of 5 my friend is also the one who chose this one because the wood is better

good things: the violin is matte which i like very much and the sound is very nice thats what my friend said and you get the whole set so thats good for that price nothing is wrong with it yet and as i said good wood

bad things: almost every thing you get is made in china stuff the violin the shoulder rest the case. the bow you get is just a cheap bow so is the rosin

all together for a made in china thing is this very good for the price i know i have been saying that its very good remember how much you are paying it wound be a 1k sounding violin but for the price its quite decent

Update: this current version is not the same as when i bought it, they changed some wood

Could not hold any tuning
Miikk 26.01.2022
The headline says it all. The tuning pegs were apparently broken or something so this violin was utterly and completely unplayable from the get-go.
