This Scott Cao violin feels more like an advanced instrument instead of a beginner violin. I am very impressed with the setup performed by Walter and the free gift. Will be back again when the next kid grows out of his.
Excellent playability, mellow tone, subtle response, and dynamic projection made this outfit (Andreas Eastman VL305ST, Eastman Strings) a definitive favorite with our review team. The setup proved better than that of many of the other violins we looked at, the pegs worked smoothly and easily, and the striking antique look and rich, dark-red varnish won high praise. The one-piece, flamed maple back and the boxwood-and-ebony fittings displayed exceptional craftsmanship. We are confident recommending the Eastman violin to the advanced student as well as the promising beginner�the violin is one of the best higher-priced models we evaluated and its quality far that of some instruments at comparable prices.
We upgraded from the VL200 to the VL305. WOW, what a difference! The instrument arrived well-packaged and could tell they spent lots of time preparing for the shipment. Strings were loosened and bridge was supported, barely got the thing off. Thank you guys!
My son's teacher recommended The Violin Center to us and I'm glad we took her advice. They were very helpful every step of the way. The violin is really beautiful and sounds good too, especially with the Dominant strings!
I ordered this violin and it arrived with a crack on the top. When I called the store, they were very professional and sent me another one within 1 week. Great customer service A++
