2. Cremona SV-75 Premier Novice Violin Outfit (Budget Pick)
If you are more interested in the most budget-friendly Cremona violin, this could be the one to go for. It would be ideal for small children who maybe can’t be trusted to care for a more expensive instrument properly – or perhaps an adult who doesn’t want to spend too much.
We like the way the components are all well made for the price. You might need to play with the bridge or other parts to get it perfect, but at this price, we don’t mind that so much. It will also withstand a little rough treatment, so again, perfect for young kids.
It also comes with a sturdy case that will help keep it safe.
Something that many people will be surprised about is how good it sounds. Of course, we are not talking about anything like professional-level quality, but for something at this price for a beginner to try, it’s more than acceptable.
On the downside, the bow is of rather inferior quality, and if you get anywhere with learning to play, this will be the first thing you’ll want to change. Also, the pegs don’t hold their position perfectly, but for the price, this is something most people will be able to work with.
In sum, this is a great option if you are looking for a decent violin at the lowest price – without going so cheap that you end up buying a toy.
It’s great value for the money it costs and would be ideal for someone who wants to have a go at learning without committing to a more expensive instrument.
