You will struggle to find an All Solid Wood violin of this quality for this price! It has fine tuners on all strings which are essential for good tuning. We also have a great set-up and tuning video for beginners. These Violins come fully strung, set-up and ready to play from the factory, you just need to tune them and apply the rosin to the bow. (We have support material on how to do this.)

If you need a tuner our Artist TN50 clip-on Tuner is a great choice to add to your order.

Not sure what size to buy? Here's an easy guide:

  • The first step is to have the player stretch out his or her arm fully ensuring that there is no bend in the arm.
  • The second step is to measure the total distance from the neck to the centre of the palm.

After following the above instructions, use the measurement and the sizing chart below to determine the proper violin size.

Violin Package is just perfect

By: on 25 August 2021
I bought a half size violin as a surprise gift for my granddaughter's birthday as she had been asking to learn violin for some time. She was absolutely thrilled with her violin and was shaking with excitement!. The quality of the violin and case with the velvet interior are excellent. The purchase process was straightforward and the package arrived promptly (although I did express post to ensure it arrived in time!).

Artist Guitars Response
Thanks for the review and we're happy that your granddaughter is happy with her new violin!

Absolutely Beautiful Violin

By: on 18 May 2020
I have purchased a guitar, a quarter sized violin and now this 1/2 size violin - all from Artist Guitars. Every instrument received is in perfect condition and you would think that they were worth 10 x as much as what you pay for them with Artist Guitars. The quality is fantastic. I am so impressed with this 1/2 size Violin. The case that it comes in is beautifully lined and everything is packaged and fits nice and snug inside the little compartment it has. It has a soft velvety fabric to protect the violin and a separate piece to lay over the top of the violin. Obviously with any string instrument that you buy new you need to tune it often to begin with so do not get frustrated as this rights itself over time. This violin has a true tone and a beautiful natural lustrous sound. We are also very happy with the service we received from Artist Guitars. They have been incredibly helpful. Do not hesitate to purchase any instrument from them. You will not regret it.
