If you're looking for an easy to use, reasonably priced, decent quality violin, then my number one choice is the Fiddlerman OB1 Violin Outfit. With its solid spruce top for extra resonance and sumptuous ebony fingerboard, it comes readily set up and it easy to tune and to play. It also comes packed to the hilt with all the extras you'll need - shoulder rest, bow, rosin, etc - making it ideal for the beginner.
If you're looking for a budget option when considering a beginners violin then our recommendation is the Mugig Violin 4/4 Full Size, Solid Wood Violin Kit.
This one is made of maple allowing it to provide pretty good resonance for a violin. Do not be deceived by its cheaper price tag, it still certainly packs a punch and is more than worthy of its place on our best violins for beginners.
The Best Violins For Beginners - Full Reviews
Which violin is best for me?
All of these violins would be a good choice for the beginner, with the Kinglos perhaps being a little more 'niche' than the others. The important thing is that you purchase a product that is hand-carved, maple and that stays in tune without too much difficulty.
Personally, I'd also say that it coming set up is a big bonus!
When it comes to the accessories, it is uncommon to have high quality ones included. So, if your package offers D’Addario strings, D’Addario or A.B. Dark Rosin, and a high quality bow, you’re onto a winner!
One violin which we didn’t mention here, which is extremely popular amongst beginner violinists and their teachers, is the Stentor ii Student Violin.
