    We just upgraded from a 1/2 size Amadeus to a 3/4 size Maestro. I admit I was expected this violin to sound quantifiably better than the Amadeus, but it does not. Either the Amadeus is just hat good or this Maestro is not what it is advertised to be. I tried changing to Evah Pirazzi strings but I don't think this violin could handle the tension. They gave it a raspy vibration. Maybe we'll keep trying new strings but I'm unhappy with the tone quality of this model. ... (See Full Review)

    Disappointed in tone

    Purchased this instrument as a move-up from the Amadeus line, which my daughter has used since her first violin, a 1/10 size. Now that she needs a 3/4 I wanted to get a better-quality instrument o serve her more advanced playing, and thought the Romanian-made models would be superior in tone to the Amadeus Chinese-made instruments. The instrument's outfitted Vision strings were extremely bright and brassy, not at all the mellow sweet tone she was used to in the Amadeus instruments. So I switched out to Pirastro Violino strings which are supposed to have a warmer tone. But it is very difficult for her to achieve a tone that is anything other than "scratchy" and uneven, especially in upper positions. We have kept the instrument too long for a return and with the new strings have put yet more money into it. In hindsight I would have ordered several instruments on approval, or just gotten the less-expensive Amadeus 3/4 and waited to spend more money until ready for a full-size. Prospective buyers: ask for a different option in strings if you don't like a really, really bright tone!! ... (See Full Review)
