Deciding on a New Fiddle. And, the Winner is…

In Deciding on a New Fiddle, I wrote about buying a new, second fiddle. I had narrowed my choice to three models. Well, today I made the choice and purchased a Fiddlerman Artist Violin.

I decided to go a step up from my present Concert violin and will consider the Master violin or Soloist violin as a future purchase. My new Artist Violin will join my Concert Violin as my second fiddle, and I am looking forward to it’s arrival.

Artist Violin Features

  • Solid hand-carved, figured spruce and maple tonewoods
  • 100% Ebony fingerboard & pegs 
  • Composite tailpiece 
  • Hand-carved German Teller bridge
  • Hand-rubbed, oil/spirit-based finish (no thick lacquer)
  • Antiqued wood – dried a minimum of 7 years
  • Strings – Whichever strings sound better on the specific violin (most commonly D’Addario Kaplan Amo or Zyex strings for the Artist violins)
  • Exceeds all Suzuki and MENC standards
  • Precisely measured string height for easy and comfortable playability

Every Fiddlerman instrument undergoes their famous 10-point inspection and comes with a Lifetime Structural Warranty and Free Lifetime Adjustments.

    Good for you! I’m enjoying my Fiddlerman Ole Bull more and more every day. I think you made a good decision!

    Congrats on your new fiddle! You’ll have to give us a full review when you get it.

    I got my Master on Monday and will have a post up about my experience and first impressions tomorrow.

      I will, and I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say about the Master.
