£60 is quite a lot of money just to put someone off wanting to learn the violin.

I would recommend going to a violin shops and trying them out before you buy rather than buying online, as that way you can see the build and hear the sound quality.

I really dont think the kind of people who buy this are too picky about build nor sound quality...

Katica illyeni playing the theme from Schindler's list (search YouTube) is one of the greatest things I have seen. Must take years to play the violin to that standard!

Looking at reviews the tuning pegs tend to slip, hardly surprising though since £91 is pretty cheap for a violin to begin with oO

Wonder how many hukkers can play the violin, almost had trouble spelling it then lol.

Great price and a great instrument to learn

There are many cheap and sad violins out there, and you should run a mile from them. Having said that, both my kids started playing on a Stentor Student II and, for their ages, they are now both playing to a reasonably high standard. The Stentor Student II can be picked up second hand on ebay for around this price and it's a good violin for a complete beginner. Obviously it doesn't sound as good as a £10,000+ instrument, but then in the first few months you're is just learning the basic finger positions and bow holds. Once you get past the basics, and are are still interested , then go ahead and reward with a more expensive violin.

I'd agree with this. I had a Stentor and it was great, didn't break the bank, but also didn't sound absolutely awful as some of these very cheap violins can (that said, all violins will sound pretty bad when played by someone who's only just started learning, of course!).

Yes, but out of his lesser known brother's workshop.
He was a plumber.

Yet again I'd recommend something from Normans. This is one of the cheapest and it's actually cheaper than this deal http://www.normans.co.uk/p-3057-forenza-prima-2-violin-outfit-full-size.aspx but I'd go for something a bit more expensive with reviews from violin teachers if you're in any way serious about learning, like this at £110 which you will actually enjoy playing: http://www.normans.co.uk/p-482-stentor-ii-1500a-student-violin-full-size.aspx

Reidys have the whole Stentor range on sale! £99.99 for the Stentor Student II in 1/4, 1/2 and full size http://www.reidys.com/br/orchestra_and_band/violins_strings/stentor/violin/r

Buy a used one,many a good tune played on an old violin,as i keep telling the mrs!
#32
Seems to be exactly the right instrument in order to find out if there is a promising musician in the family.
God I admire anyone who can get a tune out of one of these.
#33
Stagg are a terrible instrument make. id go for something a little more expensive, even for beginners. its easier to learn on a decent instrument then a bad one.
#34
Don't bother with this. Stagg are well known for their low quality items, and with a violin there is so much that can go wrong. I take it this is a full-size violin - if its a beginner violin you're after, I'd recommend you spend the extra and get either a Stentor II, Hidersine Giovanni, Stingl etc - Something with real ebony fittings, ebony fingerboard and made from a proper tonewood. They sound better, allows a beginner to use them for longer and have a far better re-sale value when they upgrade.

After every concert, I end up smashing one of these, it's the rock'n'roll thing to do you know...
