Stentor II student violin outfit

The Stentor II student violin outfit has for decades now been considered the reference standard violin outfit for educationalists – it has often been copied, even to the colour and piping of the case, but never matched. Set up in Caswell’s workshop you have the ideal instrument to set you off on your violin playing journey.

The violin itself is of high quality, handmade in Stentor’s own workshop. The pegs, nut and saddle are ebony and the violin is fitted with good quality strings and metal tailpiece with integral adjusters.

The outfit comes complete with a case with an integral cover and carrying straps plus a good quality wood bow with ebony frog. Strings are standard factory fitted strings or you have the option of upgrading them to Dominant strings, further enhancing the sound of the violin. The next level up in the Stentor range is the Stentor Conservatoire.

Caswell’s set up: We operate a strict policy of setting up every instrument to exact standards and specifications. The bridge is correctly cut and the soundpost correctly positioned. The pegs, case and bow are checked. Instruments are shipped with the bridge up.

    :

    We bought the 3/4 size Student II for our daughter, as she has outgrown her sparkly purple Stentor Harlequin, both in size, and musically. As professional musicians ourselves, my wife and I wanted a sensibly priced instrument of suitable quality, and from a known, reputable source. We also wanted to know that it would have been set up correctly (bridge and sound post positioning etc) as required. When it arrived, it was indeed set up nicely, and was ready to play straight out of the box (string tuning aside, obviously). We had chosen to upgrade the strings to a Pirastro Tonica set, and the sound is excellent for an instrument at this price level. For anyone who is not overly knowledgeable on string instruments, good quality strings and a correctly set up instrument are vital; skimping on either of these really is a false economy. Even very expensive, high quality intruments will sound awful if they have not been set up correctly, or if they do not have decent strings. Our daughter’s violin teacher is also very impressed with this whole package, including commenting on how nice the bow feels. The case is light, but still feels like it should provide a reasonable degree of protection. As a package at this price, we really cannot see how you could buy better for your budding virtuoso. We should also mention that the staff at Caswell’s were brilliant – polite, helpful and well informed about their instruments. Overall, an excellent shopping experience!
