    Surprising projection for a student instrument

    I am an intermediate student, picked one of these up to resume my studies after a hiatus (I had a very basic Franz Hoffman as my first instrument) and wanted to try a rental. When it arrived immediately changed the Overture Ultra strings for the more familiar Dominants with a Jargar Forte E-string. After the strings settled - Wow! Just wow! The projection of this violin sounds just like I remember my instructors' as a child, with many rich overtones throughout. The sound of the Jargar Forte E was amazing. It is very hard to find a good student instrument that does not make the E sound too bright and metallic - this combination provided a very rich, layered, yet brilliant tone and still crystal clear. The setup was perfect as well, the nut was filed perfectly - the E-string sits about a millimeter above the fingerboard in first position. For the cost of this outfit combined wtih its availability through Shar Way, I am eagerly resuming my studies. I planned on trading in for a Lamberti Classic as soon as I can afford one, but I am falling in love with this instrument. ... (See Full Review)
