McNeela Advanced Violin Reviews
‘A lovely instrument, nice sound’ - Dermot S
‘Quality and service you can trust’ - Greg K
'I was very unsure about buying a new and relatively inexpensive violin but my Advanced violin is exceeding all expectations. The tone improves daily and after only a week it is comparable to the 100 year old French violin I used to play. Absolutely love it and trust me when it comes to tone and quality I am not easy to please' - Liz W.
