Stentor: The Stentor Conservatoire Violin

Submitted by carteru93 on 6/25/2007

Where Purchased: Jett Landry Music

Year Purchased: 2005
Price Paid: Don't Remember historic exchange rates / currency converter


Gets a nice clear, crisp, clean tone with plenty of volume.

Sound Rating: 8


The post was up, the bridge was set, and the strings were new and in tune! What more can a man want?

Setup Rating: 9


Nice finish on it. I got a discount because it had a small, VERY small chip on the finish from where it had been bumped on the counter by the store owner.

Appearance Rating: 7


Good quality fine tuners and tailpiece. The fiddle doesn't look like it will fall apart any time soon!

Reliability Rating: 8

All parts were great. The fine tuners were metal, the tuners had good friction on them with a little rosin dust to help, the bow hair was great.

Components Rating: 9

Overall Comments

I would HIGHLY recommend this fiddle for anyone just starting out to professional. I think it's a wonderful instrument. If it were stolen, I would look around for something maybe a bit more expensive, and more reputable company. I had never heard of Stentor before.
