The Kennedy Violins Difference

What makes Kennedy Violins string instruments the best on the market? First, we purchase each violin directly from the maker — a rare and highly effective business practice that lowers our cost and allows us to pass the savings to you. Next, all final assembly and FREE setup is performed locally in our Washington State shop by our professionally trained luthier staff. NO assembly or setup is required with a violin that is ready to play from the moment you open the case. With both the highest-rated violins and customer service in the U.S., we invite you to experience the Kennedy Violins difference today!

Natural Oil Finish

The oil finish is a unique feature usually seen on more expensive violins. Student-level string instruments sold by other retailers at this cost are typically coated with a thick, glossy lacquer finish that hinders quality tone production. The Ricard Bunnel has an authentic, hand-rubbed oil finish. It not only looks more professional, but remains true to historical, tried-and-true standards of hand-crafted violin making. The finish, construction, fittings, and design of the Ricard Bunnel give this instrument a warmer and more projective sound than competing student violins at the same price point. Watch performance videos of the Ricard Bunnel G2 to hear the quality of this instrument in live performance!

Free Setup

FREE expert setup by our staff of professional luthiers is included with your purchase to meet or exceed all MENC specifications and standard measurements. At Kennedy Violins, the luthier staff ensures that each violin is individually setup, tuned, and inspected to our highest standards. Your violin will be ready to play when you receive it—not sent to you unstrung or in pieces as sold by other online retailers.  Our setup includes the following:

  • Smoothing the fingerboard
  • Arching the bridge
  • Fitting bridge feet to the curvature of the violin
  • Carving the nut to professional curvature
  • Fitting pegs
  • Polishing the finish

  • Shipping within 2 business days. In-shop luthiers allow same-day shipping on some orders.
  • Portland Guardian Case

Product Reviews

  1. A Great Deal 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2017

    I ordered this violin after a fair amount of research, and I am incredibly pleased with it. It is truly a beautiful instrument, in both look and sound, and I have had more accomplished violinists marvel at the deal this truly is. Although these clearance violins are said to have been marked down due to their blemishes, I can't even find an imperfection on mine. Between the instrument and the value and the great customer service Kennedy provides, I would highly recommend this product. Other violins at this price point are not near the same quality.
