If you need a shoulder rest, please purchase it seperately.
Inexpensive violins need special attention before they are offered to the musician. They need a new bridge, a new soundpost, the grooves in the nut have to be adjusted and the bow has to be looked at.
The new Arco model has a one-piece back, a rather dark varnish, Ebony fittings. It has a particularly impressive sound. This outfit retails for $299.00!
