My Fiddlerman Fiddle Arrives

Earlier this week, tracking of my Fiddlerman Concert Violin Outfit showed it would not arrive until Monday, February 4th, but it made it here faster, and I received it today!

Fiddlerman Concert Violin Packaging

It was very well packed and protected. And, when I opened it, it took my breath away with it’s plush interior.

The case is quite study with a built in humidity gauge right in the interior top of the case (upper left).

The fiddle was put in a protective bag.

And, here it is with the fiddle, bow, rosin and shoulder rest.

Where did you buy or get your first fiddle?

    I bought my fiddle from the fiddlershop and couldn’t be more pleased! Wonderful people to deal with1

      I agree! Before I bought my fiddle, I was so confused about which one to buy, but the Fiddlershop is full of information and reviews. I also called, and they were very helpful. You really get the felling the Fiddlershop wants to help people, not just sell fiddles. That’s the way to win and keep customers. Pierre is a good person.

    One of my goals is play “Jole Blon”! I started taking lessons 2 years ago and my first fiddle was mail ordered from a different site. It’s a made in Yugoslavia Knilling with Perfect Pegs and a Glasser fiberglass bow. The case is hard plasic, but no room for a shoulder rest, just the bow and rosin.

    Hi Jim, I’m also an older folk (at 66) learning fiddle, and just one month into my journey. I inherited my fiddle in the 70s from an uncle who had bought it in the early 20s. It’s German made, and according to the luthier who replaced the warped bridge, it’s a good “student” violin. I’m in south Louisiana and eventually want to play Cajun fiddle. I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog. It’s so nice to get to know and follow someone else on this challenging adventure! Thanks for going public! Happy Fiddling!

      Glad you found my new blog, Deborah. Sounds like you have an antique and nice fiddle to learn on. If you haven’t already, you should take a look at the Fiddlerman site and join the forum. (https://fiddlerman.com/) I just joined last week…a lot of nice and helpful people and information, and a good amount of new fiddlers like us. Maybe I’ll see you over there! ~Jim
