What We Say

The Primavera 200 is a great starting point for a young violin, surprisingly well made and full sounding for the price. 

Primavera 200s ship with a reasonable quality set of metal strings that are more than adequate for a beginner, however we regularly fit upgraded strings such as Thomastik Alphague or Dominant strings to Primaveras and it significantly improves the tone - we're always happy to do this to any cello we sell for the price of the strings, and of course if you buy a cello with the stock strings and decide to upgrade six months later we can help you then as well.

One area to be aware of with student violin family instruments is that they rarely play well out of the box: the bridges are usually left a little high and the changes is temperature and humidity associated with shipping instruments from the Far East means that, however well set up at the factory, they often suffer from stiff or sticking pegs and other issues. For this reason all of our arriving stock goes through our technical department where we check the fit of the pegs and the bridge and adjust as recessary, assuring that the instrument you buy will play perfectly.  

It comes with a shaped case and a carbonite bow.
