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...
